Fat: An Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient, With Recipes

posted by snekse

Something that I promised several months ago is finally coming to fruition - book reviews. And to start things off right, I've decided our first book is worthy of not one, but three separate reviews. It will be reviewed by a chef, an avid home cook, and myself (an occasional, semi-competent cook). This will give you various perspectives so you'll have a better idea about who this book is geared toward and if it suits your interests. We'll also be printing two recipes from the book so you can try it out yourself. Look for the first review tomorrow and the others to follow over the next couple of weeks.
