This Book Cooks: Farm-Fresh Traditional Recipes for Healthy Contemporary Cooking
There are plenty of cookbooks available and most people already own a few, so why go out and look for a new one? Well, if one can find a cookbook that has a really fresh take and a great many very creative recipes, such as Parsnip Cake with Cream Cheese Icing, or Bloody Mary Aspic, or Cheddar and Cauliflower Fritters, or Red Cabbage Salad with Mango, Avocado, Feta, and Cashews, that would be a reason to add to one’s cookbook collection. This cookbook has nearly two hundred recipes, many classic and many unusual, interesting, and fresh ideas for delicious items. It has nine sections of food covering everything from appetizers, to entrees, to breads, to desserts, and a bonus section with recipes for dog treats. What pooch wouldn’t like some fresh Milk and Molasses Dog Treats? Author Kerry Dunnington shares family stories, her own ideas about how to shop responsibly, and how to have and use the freshest seasonable foods in your cooking. Though the opening section sometimes sounds a little like a lecture, this book should be a welcome addition to any kitchen.
