Description - The Myrtlewood Cookbook by Andrew Barton
Stemming from an underground supper club, this locally produced cookbook--which was funded by a Kickstarter campaign and sold out its first printing--is just the sort of inspired creation that could only have come from Portland, Oregon.
This is beautiful home cooking with strong Pacific Northwest influences, photographed in and around a home kitchen in real time. Andrew Barton has co-run Secret Restaurant Portland (a monthly supper club) for over six years. A preschool teacher by day, Andrew is a culinary autodidact-having spent no time in a restaurant kitchen-who has invested time, passion, and intent to learn and practice the art of cooking. He grows a full kitchen garden, absorbs the influence of such masters as Nigel Slater, Mollie Katzen, and Deborah Madison, and develops his own recipes inspired by his close friends, his travels, and his family history. The results are inspired, original, and charming. Andrew has a highly tuned food sense, and he expresses his invitingly casual but intentional way in the kitchen in each and every recipe. You will gain nearly as much from reading these recipes as from cooking them.
