This Is Camino by Russell Moore and Allison Hopelain with Chris Colin
by Russell Moore and Allison Hopelain with Chris Colin is a new niche cook book based on the recipes of the restaurant and grill based recipes. One might wonder why in this modern day anyone would purchase an expensive cook book when there are so many free recipes available on the internet. There are still some people out there who prefer a physical cookbook that they can shelve in their kitchen rather than a collection of printed out recipes. This book is a beautifully bound hardcover with full color photos of exotic looking meals. It is a work of art- which it needs to be- in order to compete with the convenience of online recipes. This book would make a great gift for a chef or as a housewarming gift. As far as recipes- this book is for the advanced chef who feels at home trying new meals This book is about grilling- but not about a typical barbecue or hotdogs and hamburgers. This book is for daring individuals who dare to mix the dangers of grilling ver an open fire with meal preparation. This book combines artistry and upscale ingredients with a variety of meat and ingredients. The book goes over the step by step process of the recipes even the history of the recipe as well. There is a lot of background and supplemental information to make the reader an expert in this cuisine . As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Ten Speed Press publishers for the purpose of writing this review.
