Like so many cookbook reviews which tell about the kitchen basics, the chapters devoted to weeknight dinners, feasts, food good for leftovers and the usual advice for stocking the pantry – this cookbook has all that.
Now, that doesn’t mean it’s a pedestrian, so-so book laid out like so many others. This is an extraordinary cookbook, beautifully photographed with easy to follow recipes. There are numerous recipes I would like to try but I started with one for salmon.
I was not disappointed. I made a few of my own modifications but the basics of this recipe will be used again and again. This first time I served it with garlic parmesan peas and pearled couscous.
The back of this book has a nice charted seasonal produce guide as well as a section devoted to Produce Techniques. This means if you never handled a rutabaga or cooked Fiddlehead Ferns, a detailed description of the produce at hand, and how to cut it or prepare it, is provided.
This is also available as an eBook but honestly, I would rather have this book cover and tote it around, look at the lovely photos.
I received this boom from the Blogging for Books program and have enjoyed it from the day I opened the package. All opinions are my own and I received this book free of charge.
