Some of the recipes in the book aren't the easiest and that some have obscure ingredients, but from the ones I've tried out to date, I must say the food is absolutely divine. The flavors are matched so well.

Of the ones I tried I cooked the pork roast (black rooster style). The meat was so soft after the 4 or so hours of cooking, the food literally melted in my mouth. Also there is a recipe for veal rolls, with pine nuts and cranberries, that are fried on the bbq--they are delicious. Lastly, a personal favorite (and super easy to make) are the potato fries or wedges.

Overall, it's not an everyday recipe cookbook, but I have yet to go wrong and once in a while I enjoy trying to find the obscure ingredients!
