Description
Brooklyn, New York, is a down-to-earth, unsnobby feast for foodies--and Edible Brooklyn Cookbook captures that same fun vibe. It features unpretentious recipes from local artisans, chefs, and ordinary folk who celebrate Brooklyn's finest ingredients. And, like the borough's eclectic population--which includes Italian, Asian, Polish, Mexican, Russian, you name it--you never know what you'll find when you turn the page. After all, when was the last time you saw a cookbook with chapters for small plates and snacks and sandwiches, vegetables, pickles, and sides?
Part travel guide, part recipe collection, part great read, this volume is the first in a series of four Edible cookbooks--and it offers a deliciously up close and personal view of one of American's most exciting food fests.
