Daniel: My French CuisineRestaurant Daniel is a pretty upscale restaurant, and I enjoy buying cookbooks from those types of restaurants and challenging myself to replicating meals from those books. Hence I came to Daniel: My French Cuisine, albeit somewhat after it had first made its appearance in the marketplace.My copy of Daniel arrived with a solid thud, a fitting sound for a book over 1 and Â½ inches thick and big enough, when opened, to push my feet off of the coffee table. A quick flip-through. Beautiful pictures throughout. The restaurant recipes involved many steps, but each step was precisely explained, as were the recipes in the section on some of the meals that Daniel cooks at home.Then, my first test. Did the plating instructions match the restaurant meal photographs? I chose a recipe and flipped back and forth a number of times… and then a number of times more, excited to find that the instructions coincided with the pictures down to the last piece of garnish. My excitement built. If I wanted to, I could make a plate that looked exactly like what I could buy at Restaurant Daniel. Nice!Now, on to step two: the introduction. Was the point of the book clearly stated. Well, yes it was. In the introduction, Daniel set the parameters and, in a sense issued a reminder (or warning, perhaps) that he has many people involved in the preparation of his restaurant food (brigade is the key word) and that he lives above the restaurant which implies (as he would later state in the last section) that a quick run to the restaurant to pick up some truffles for dinner was not a luxury that many of us have.
