It opens readers' eyes to possibilities never imagined before and gives a unique perspective on a completely new and interactive way to cook. Mr. Bitterman has changed the way I cook every day.

I encourage you to follow Mr. Bitterman's lead and I promise you will never think about salt in the same way again." --Vitaly Paley, chef/owner of Paley's Place Bistro and Bar, Imperial, and Portland Penny Diner; coauther of The Paley's Place Cookbook

Book is excellent! I wish it were a different size as it is hard to ship as a gift in standard boxes.
