A nice intro to making things that you would ordinarily buy at the store. The photography is beautiful and I eventually will buy this book. The recipes also seem doable and there aren't lists of difficult-to-find ingredients.
I also appreciated her stories and it's probably one of the first times that I actually read a cookbook cover to cover. As time goes on, I am also much more picky about the food I cook and what is in the food my family and I eat. Chernila really has me thinking about a lot of the processing that happens and what we are buying in the store for the sake of convenience.
As a disclaimer, I haven't **made** any of the recipes yet.
