Cookbook Review: Hugh Acheson's The Broad Fork

Just not a very good one. In January, with months of snow still ahead, the temptation to cheat the seasons by starting seedlings comes on strong. By March, however, there are few survivors. The seedlings have dried up through neglect or been knocked off the windowsill by cranky cats. That doesn't deter me. But trouble inevitably strikes. Point is, there's a tremendous amount of care and effort that goes into growing vegetables, and my pitiful efforts make the bounty of the farmer's markets seem that much more impressive.

Enter Hugh Acheson. And now he's written The Broad Fork, a book that quite literally seeks to answer the question, "What the hell do I do with kohlrabi? " Acheson is not alone in the vegetable cookbook category, of course. But the joyful Broad Fork is the only vegetable cookbook written by Hugh Acheson. Just try and tell me you don't want to cook one of those for dinner tonight. But you know what? By Hugh Acheson Clarkson Potter. The 21 Best Cookbooks of 2015.

Epicurious Market - The Butcher's Guide to Well-Raised Meat: How to Buy, Cut, and Cook Great Beef, Lamb, Pork, Poultry, and More

Josh: My goal is for the book to act as a guide and to help people ease their minds when buying and cooking meat. We don’t encourage people to eat more meat but we want them to have the freedom to make informed choices and eat better meat. Jessica: I like the idea of busting myths like those surrounding wet aging, portion sizes and the idea that organic HAS to be expensive. How would you describe what you do? You were both vegetarians, what caused you to become omnivores? Jessica: I wanted to start eating meat again--just not the stuff that supermarkets were selling, and it was too much for me to buy a side of beef. Favorite cut of meat? Jessica: Lamb Sirloin Most under-rated cut? Epicurious Market - The Cake Bible.
