No, the problem is the degree of masturbation and "look at me I am rich" ramblings and the fact that while the information is top notch, the recipes are not very sophisticated. Or, I should say that the recipes are sophisticated in the original sense of the word, but not very interesting as far as flavor goes. They never fail to use a complicated technique when a simple one would be better, nor fail to use a complicated technique when nothing at all is necessary. For the info on how to make a sphere or a foam or how to make your own freeze dried container for cup of noodles it is great. Srs.
