“Every decade or so, the immensely popular Joy of Cooking gets a spit shine.
In a crowded field of cookbook authors, there are only a handful who can be relied upon to consistently turn out simple, easy-to-follow, delicious recipes for everyday home cooks.
“Too bad there aren’t more recipes like this in Prune, because Gabrielle Hamilton has comfort food down cold: rich, rustic food made with copious amounts of good fat and salt.”
“. . . one of those fun and usable cookbooks that will be marked, tagged, dog-eared, and dripped on with yet another secret sauce.”
“. . . expertly adapted for home use and offers many dishes worth trying and adding to your repertoire . . . I just don’t like the idea of being given a regifted item.”
John Besh doesn’t mince words.
“My copy of Wild Flavors is so dog-eared that the book looks like I’ve owned and used it for years. I haven’t—but I intend to.”
