Chronicle Books, 2011, paperback, 416 pages, more than 400 recipes, many beautiful photos.
A big, heavy, beautifully photographed book that feels authoritative.
The intro material is short, but high quality. It emphasizes creative recipes and has large sections on fish and veggies for folks who don’t eat meat. On the other hand, many recipes call for hard-to-find ingredients such as elk, lamb kidneys, agave, epazote, etc. Not easy to find at the local grocery. Sure wish the type wasn’t so small.
