LOOK WHAT I GOT FOR MY BIRTHDAY!!
Oh, this is entirely the kind of cookbook that makes a person like me so very, very happy.
I watch Pitchin' In whenever I get the chance. I love the lesson that Chef Crawford is trying to teach the world about the beautiful things that can be put on a plate straight from the farm or the range or the boat or the garden. I love the moments on the show where the farmers and fishermen discover something new about the products that they work so hard to raise. And when Lynn learns something new about their products as well.
WH and I are still working to be more conscientious about our local growers and producers and to learn more about compassionate and careful production of the food that we serve on our table. And cookbooks like this one give me the energy to keep going! Oh, the pictures!!! Beautiful enough to lick the pages, I'm telling you.
If you haven't seen the show, I encourage you to find an episode. You are guaranteed to witness a beautiful story about farm/boat/range/garden to table cooking.
