Big Bad Breakfast: The Most Important Book of the Day by John Currence is a new niche cook book based on the breakfast inspired 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 a variety of meals inspired by traditional as well as exotic breakfast choices. It is a work of art with collages and full color spreads featuring meat and various cultures. This book would make a great gift for a chef or as a housewarming gift.
As far as recipes- this book is for the chef who feels at home with meat, and sausage in eggs, as well as eclectic and exotic dishes. The cover may feature a traditional breakfast, but the recipes are original, complex and unique. This book is for daring individuals who love breakfast inspired foods for any time of the day.. This book combines artistry and upscale ingredients with a variety of meat and ingredients. There is a lot of background and supplemental information to make the reader an expert in breakfast cuisine . This retro styled cookbook will appeal to a new generation of cooks. This book is entertaining to read as well as informative- as it goes beyond traditional recipes. It is more like a breakfast adventure or journey. As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Potter publishers for the purpose of writing this review.
