    A birthday present for my husband. I don't really expect him to make any of the recipes (molecular gastronomy is not always easy to accomplish in the home kitchen, but if he wants to give it a try I won't stop him). Brings back fond memories of the 3 times we ate at Moto (twice with great friends and once by ourselves for our 10th anniversary). The pictures are wonderful as are the stories of how Chef Cantu came up with some his more outlandish ideas (I'm looking at you "smell the glove") A birthday present for my husband.

    Without equal the craziest cookbook I've read. Filled with some of the most original recipes I've ever seen. I made the margarita recipe in here and it was pretty good, but I added too much cumin and not enough sausage. Easily recommended to anyone looking for a compilation of ambitious and unique recipes.

    I thought I was getting a cookbook, but in reality I was getting a look into a creative, curious mind. I don't think anyone had as much fun with food as Homaro Cantu.
