Praise for Prune
“Fresh, attention-grabbing . . . fullyyt gratifying . . . when you consider that 1999, while the chef Gabrielle Hamilton placed Triscuits and canned sardines at the first menu of her East Village bistro, Prune, she has nonchalantly damaged numerous principles of the foodstuff global. the rule of thumb winning eating place needs to breed an empire. the guideline that cooks who ensue to be ladies may still unconditionally aid each other. the rule of thumb that groovy cooks don’t make nice writers (with her memoir, Blood, Bones & Butter). And now, the guideline that eating place nutrition should be simplified and prettied up for domestic chefs as a way to produce an invaluable, impossible to resist cookbook. . . . [Prune] is the nearest factor to the bulging loose-leaf binder, caught in a nook of virtually each eating place kitchen, ever to be published and sure among fabric covers. (These take place to be a gorgeous deep, darkish magenta.)”The long island Times
