When you're married to Noma's Rene Redzepi you never know who might drop by for dinner...So Nadine Redzepi has developed a stripped-down repertoire of starters, mains, and desserts that can always accommodate a few more at the table, presenting them in a stylish yet relaxed way that makes guests feel like family--and makes family feel special every single day. Gone are the days when the cook is expected to labor alone in the kitchen while family or guests wait for their meal. In the Redzepi home everyone gravitates toward the kitchen to socialize, help, or graze on tasty bites while dinner is prepared, and Nadine wouldn't have it any other way. Her culinary mantra - pair the very best ingredients with restaurant-inflected techniques that make the most of out their inherent flavors -- puts deliciousness at home well within reach for cooks of all levels. In Nadine's confident hands, weeknight mainstays like tomato bruschetta, pan-seared pork chops, slow-roasted salmon, or dark, fudgy brownies feel new again. Each recipe is studded with tips to help cooks build confidence and expertise as they cook, as well as restaurant-ready techniques that contribute precision, flavor, and plate appeal to even down-to-earth preparations. With a newfound mastery of essential building blocks like homemade mayonnaise and beurre blanc, a flavorful tomato sauce, or a genius do-it-all cake batter that can be reinvented in a myriad of ways, creating showstoppers like White Asparagus with Truffle Sauce; Rotini with Spicy Chicken Liver Sauce; or a decadent Giant Macaron Cake - just as Nadine does on a daily basis--soon becomes second nature. Downtime is a celebration of the joys of cooking well -and making it look easy while you do it, an aspirational guide for any cook ready to take their home cooking to the next level without sacrificing ease or enjoyment in the process.

Its measurements are given in both imperial and metric units, as well as how I feel naturally talented chef's describe ingredients: 'a dash' 'a sprinkle' 'to taste' which is kind of magical. This isn't just a cookbook, it's an instruction guide to cook and experienced as food was meant to be shared.

    Although the recipes sounded interesting, they also seemed pretty "cheffy." Not really what I'm looking to cook for "downtime." Some people really love this kind of cooking, so this book is for them! The recipes are also for those without any diet restrictions. Plenty of pastas and calorie-dense ingredients are represented. Delicious for sure, healthy for everyone, not so sure. Maybe this is more of a special occasion cookbook. The photos are lovely. Be prepared to have to turn the page while coo Although the recipes sounded interesting, they also seemed pretty "cheffy." Not really what I'm looking to cook for "downtime."

Most are on a 3 page spread, one including that lovely photo.

    This is an amazing book. Not only about food, recipes and dishes. Through her explatation we have the chance to understand how Nadine started to love cooking and also how cooking, food and recipes are a huge part of her life with her husband, daughters, family and friends. We also love the way René talks about her. Not to mention that the pictures are amazing. Each recipe feels like a story told to the reader with tips that can be sooooooo helpful.

    More of a reference book than an instruction manual, for burned out home cooks with an intermediate knowledge of cookery, and a creative block on presentation/weeknight meal ideas. Though photos are gorgeous (perhaps even worth a couple thousand words), details are conversational/non-technical, and measurements are imprecise. Reading Redzepi is akin to having a friend/relative share their favorite recipes by word of mouth. You'll have to tweak and improvise-- it's best to come armed with an eye More of a reference book than an instruction manual, for burned out home cooks with an intermediate knowledge of cookery, and a creative block on presentation/weeknight meal ideas.

Reading Redzepi is akin to having a friend/relative share their favorite recipes by word of mouth. You'll have to tweak and improvise-- it's best to come armed with an eye for ingredients, a tongue for seasoning, and a mercenary's hand with salt. P.S. I do love that the cookbook considerately includes not one, but three (!) bound fabric bookmarks. Makes me want to hug the author.

    Unfortunately not at all what I expected - the recipes do sound delicious, but are far too fancy for my version of downtime, and take too much effort and skill to make (for a halfway unskilled cook like me, I wouldn´t even make them for guests). The title and the super pretty cover just caught my eye, and I thought I´d get a cookbook with rather easy recipes to enjoy on a lazy night in. But to be honest, I wouldn´t make little cups out of brusselsprouts and fill them with salmon roe for that occ Unfortunately not at all what I expected - the recipes do sound delicious, but are far too fancy for my version of downtime, and take too much effort and skill to make (for a halfway unskilled cook like me, I wouldn´t even make them for guests).

But to be honest, I wouldn´t make little cups out of brusselsprouts and fill them with salmon roe for that occasion. There are a few easy recipes in there, like for tomato sauce, but not enough for me to keep the book, I´ll send it back.

    Definitely geared towards folks who find solace in cooking or making food for others. Some recipes are deceptively simple, while others require significantly more care, attention and time. Some decent ideas, but nothing really new -- just simple home goodness. Not being a fan of home made potato chips, or some of the other comfort foods here, only 3 stars, but solely based on the utility of the book for personal use.

    Reading the book was nice, although I got annoyed pretty easily by all the copy paste regarding certain prep steps. Editing aside, when I finally picked some recipes and tried them, I got really disappointed. Underseasoned, overly sweet desserts, unbalanced. Picked some interesting ideas from it, but overall, would not recommend this book.

    A really nice book filled with great recipes that ONE CAN ACTUALLY COOK FROM. Will use this plenty.

    Fun to read, interesting recipes, a few good finds, but generally not something I would refer to often.
