The comic interludes were highly entertaining. The techniques were well explained but not overly practical for a home cook for a normal meal (they were do-able but probably only for a special weekend meal). The recipes were very interesting with a unique spin on vegetables.

I have to agree, this book is much better as a biographical graphic novel than as a cookbook. But it's still wildly entertaining! And I found out some very good cooking tips for vegetables (they either need to be boiled much shorter than you think or roast for way longer than you think)

The black and white graphic novel approach was definitely unexpected for a cookbook! It was fun reading the stories on how the restaurant, Dirt Candy, came to be.

However, although the recipes were unique and interesting, they are not for your average home cook. Many of the recipes require hours of prep time and some skills in the kitchen.

Different concept and interesting to browse through being in a graphic novel format but not what I expected. Some good recipes though.
