A New York Times Sunday Book Review notable cookbook of 2013
"Koehler is an expert guide, providing highly informative headnotes to each recipe, often explaining regional variations in the same recipe and suggesting some clever tips. In his recipe for clams with oloroso sherry, for example, he suggests substituting dry white wine with a little brandy if sherry isn't at hand. These pages abound in seductively rustic dishes like pork baked in a salt crust and served with fruit compote, chestnut pur e or a blue cheese sauce." - William Grimes, The New York Times Sunday Book Review
