Description

In the multi-touch edition of 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.

    I enjoy eating at April's restaurants and I loved this fun interactive cookbook. Don't mind the PETA crazies - this book is for the ultimate food lovers.

    Rare is the cookbook you want to read cover to cover, but this is it. A delightful read and absolutely scrumptious recipes. I don't think the PETA activist below is being helpful; anyone who is looking at a cookbook that isn't vegetarian…isn't vegetarian.
