Bakers and Chefs alike are going to love this cookbook. Simple ingredients and easy to make recipes.
I loved all that I have made so far. There is one recipe that does not sound to appetizing and that is roasted Pig Stomach, I won't be trying that one for sure. Psss, don't forget to make yourself a gallon of Root beer, that's right I said homemade root beer.
I love the pictures and the stories in this cookbook this is one to keep one your shelf and buy for great friends as well.
I have to say this was a 4 star cookbook and I plan to share it with my friends.
I was given a copy of this cookbook by the publisher for my honest review.
