This is an amazing cookbook and I appreciate anything Middle Eastern. There are so many recipes I want to try, most using my favorite meat, lamb. Stay tuned, I’ll be cooking from this book in the coming weeks.
“Cooking my way Back Home – Recipes from San Francisco’s Town Hall, Anchor & Hope, and Salt House”
by Mitchell Rosenthal
This book was a gift from a friend who travels to San Francisco on a regular basis. I looked through the book but didn’t initially start cooking anything from it. What a mistake! Because everything I have made from this book is fabulous. The recipes are not difficult but do require many ingredients so I always make a list and shop prior to cooking. This is a great cookbook… full of comfort food and amazing tastes. It’s a great addition to your cookbook collection.
I purchased this cookbook a while ago and have used it as a reference for just about everything! This book explains to the home cook why and how certain techniques work. I recommend this cookbook to anyone who wants to learn to cook, who wants to improve their cooking, and to anyone who just loves to cook. The last recipe I tried, sautéed chicken breasts in a tarragon butter sauce, was mouthwatering! It could be my new gift idea for my favorite cooks.
