I'm really just not into Anchovy Anything (especially Not on Lamb...BAH) or Deep Fried Pigs Ear Salad..... but if you can get past that, some of the recipes sound absolutely delightful: carrot, avocado, & orange salad; Caesar salad; Lentil/chickpea salad w/ feta & tahini; Grilled rib eye w/ romesco; Skirt steak w/ watercress & chiles; Tongue sandwiches; Tomatoes stewed w/ white wine & saffron; Swiss chard w/ olive oil; Beef & bayley hazen pie; or Whole suckling pig.

Then there is the section: "Not so Tasty Bites" & "Not so Tasty at All" which contains... Liver & Onions....Veal kidneys in garlic butter.....

The photographs are very nice, but not available for every recipe... The recipes seem time consuming and detailed.

I don't think I'll be using the recipes in this book any time soon. ( )

April's food is what I imagine the gamekeeper would serve Lady C for a late breakfast after their passionate tryst in their country cabin. Rustic-refined with a touch of Brit panache and just a dash of pequin chili to keep it interesting. The photography is all lovely, but the biggest surprise was Sun Young Park's charming illustrations. Just like the p-chili, they were the perfect finishing touch. ( )

In A Girl and Her Pig, April Bloomfield takes home cooks on an intimate tour of the food that has made her a star. Thoughtful, voice-driven recipes go behind the scenes of Bloomfield's lauded restaurants—The Spotted Pig, The Breslin, and The John Dory—and into her own home kitchen, where her attention to detail and reverence for honest ingredients result in unforgettable dishes that reflect her love for the tactile pleasures of cooking and eating. Bloomfield's innovative yet refreshingly straightforward recipes, which pair her English roots with a deeply Italian influence, offer an unfailingly modern and fresh sensibility and showcase her bold flavors, sensitive handling of seasonal produce, and nose-to-tail ethos. A cookbook as delightful and lacking in pretention as Bloomfield herself, A Girl and Her Pig combines exquisite food with charming narratives on Bloomfield's journey from working-class England to the apex of the culinary world, along with loving portraits of the people who have guided her along the way.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:31 -0400)

The English chef behind such New York restaurants as The Spotted Pig, The Breslin, and the John Dory shares recipes and techniques that combine her working-class English background with a flair for seasonal and meaty dishes using fresh ingredients.
