Anya Fernald's Home Cooked: Essential Recipes For a New Way To Cook
If you enjoy rustic cooking, you will love Anya Fernald's latest cookbook: Home Cooked: Essential Recipes For a New Way To Cook. I didn't know who Anya Fernald was until I got my hands on her cookbook. I really enjoyed reading her story about how she got into cooking and her adventures abroad. Her recipes are very simple, lots of grilling. I liked her Carne Cruda (raw beef) recipe. I enjoy eating good quality raw beef though. However, her pictures do not do the recipe justice. The Carne Cruda looks like a glob of red, mushy meat even though it really is just that. Ms. Fernald includes a few raw meat recipes so if you are a fan of raw meat, this might be a good cookbook for you. I am dying to try her Oil-Packed Sardines recipe. It's a very simple recipe to pack your own sardines without having to buy them already canned. Also, I am looking forward to pickling some grapes once Fall Season starts. I love pickles so I think pickled grapes would be a hit.
I love simple, rustic recipes so I enjoyed reading this book. I look forward to trying more of her recipes in this book. I wished the pictures were more visually appealing and eye-catching though. They seemed a bit drab to me.
Disclaimer: I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
