So today I will not be posting any recipes. I'm sorry, but it's true! Today is a good day though - today I have the great honor of introducing my friend Stephen's (The Obsessive Chef) new cook book - A Cook's Book For Cooks! Yes, it's true, the Obsessive Chef is now in print! I am even more excited to tell you all that I was truly the first one to purchase this little gem. I've never had the first copy of any book, trust me.
Anyway, Stephen has been working hard at putting his idea into print. I've walked with him a bit through this process... well, as much as someone 2,400 miles away can - and I know this was not an easy task, so that makes my showcasing this book here even more amazing to me.
I will admit that I'm not 100% done reading the book, but I'm far enough along to know I love it. Yes, Stephen can get a bit rambling sometimes and he can even be a bit in your face, but it's witty and informative and I loved the read. Stephen has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to cooking. What I think some people might not appreciate as much as myself, is the fact that some of his amounts of ingredients are "figure it out for yourself" type of thing. What I mean by this is that he will sometimes give you exact measurements and other times just give you the ingredients you need to use. This can frustrate some people - but the point he constantly tries to make throughout the book is that you need to experiment - you need to make things to match your tastes (not his) - you do NOT need to follow recipes to the "T" to make a delicious meal.
