Dispirito has put together a cookbook that is much better than the typical celebrity fare. He focuses on the four classic tastes: sweet, sour, bitter and salty. Each recipe includes essential information such as total cooking time, active cooking time, difficulty, number of portions, and suggested wines. The meals are inviting; the ingredients are not unusual; and the recipes are easy and not at all intimidating.
