I received my book
Ok an hour ago.
Im a big fan of Chef VH for many reasons
having viewed the various PBS shows , and studied Deep Run Roots
Chef VH is a bit different than most.
I still see that in this book. It more glossy
and a bit more ' produced. '
no matter, a few , glossy pics that have noting to do
w her ideas and philosophy about ingredients and thinking about them
OK. so be it.
Ive read several of the Rx's ,including
Im not going to make this any time soon.
but I deeply appreciate how much I might enjoy it
with Chef VH additional insights.
as soon as I get around to making it.
CookBooks do many things for us
sometimes we makes Rx's out of them
and enjoys the chef's insights that go with the technique
and the ingredients.
this is a similarly fine book
Deep Run Roots,
there is a deep understanding of ingredients , and
many new ideas here .
and ref : Red Weapons ?
Chef VH points out the Rx did not start as her own
and went through one or two other chefs
to get to her own version.
who mentions that these days ?
if you don't have Deep Run Roots
and then get this tome also
you won't regret either
if just to read and think about these ideas for later.
outstanding\ng book ,
in the same tradition as
Deep Run Roots
cheers again !
