Book Review: Home Cooked

I love cookbooks and typing that doesn't really relay how much I enjoy perusing the pages of recipes and pouring over pictures of delectable food.

I have a fairly large collection of them ranging from strictly vegan to a book that teaches you how to cook everything and everything in between.

I have reviewed a few cookbooks in the past and have always been excited to try a couple of recipes and see how they turned out (we all want them to look as good as they do in the book), but this time I have to say I was not so excited.

I received a copy of Home Cooked by Anya Fernald

The book is lovely.  It is a fantastic hardbound book with a linen cover.  You hold the book and expect very rich and delicious food to be made from these words.

I looked through the recipes and couldn't find one that I wanted to make and was particularly turned off by one recipe, tallow fries.

I am sure that there is a market for the recipes that Ms. Fernald has published but I am not in that market.

I received this book for review from Blogging for Books.
