This is my all time favorite cookbook. Fresh, flavorful NW cuisine at its best. I love how the book is layed out by seasons. This book is timeless and is a "must have" for everyone that enjoys cooking.

This cookbook is from 1989, but it still has some good ideas. If you are looking for some tried and true recipes for Salmon and Dungeoness Crab, there are some in here.

Susan has a wonderful website that has much more modern and up to date recipes and a blog that covers the PNW area.

You can see the beginnings of a food movement starting here in 1989, with the preference to local ingredients, fresh flavors and colors and presentation. It has come a LONG way since then, but its like reading a good history book.

There are no photos in the cookbook. It is a must have if you live in the Pacific Northwest because she singles out the wonderful produce you can get locally.

There are little to no low fat recipes in this cookbook, but you can make some substitutes for the high fat ingredients, as well as modernizing some of the flavors. A good cookbook is one that has one great recipe, and a few that can inspire you to make up something of your own. This is a good cookbook by that definition, pick up a used copy for the shelf next to Julia. I guess thats why I have so many cookbooks......

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book! I go to it every time I have questions about terms, herbs, how to prepare specific items, the proper season to look for certain foods... etc. Not to mention the recipes, wow. You will impress family, friends and guests with the beautiful presentation and tastes and yet the recipes are easy to follow and explain things a novice cook (such as myself) would need to know. I am still learning from this cookbook and enjoying preparing and presenting these dishes. If this were the 1960's you would buy a Julia Child cookbook. Now, it should be this one. After years of cooking and many cook books this is still my go-to for information and a meal that is truly artful. And even if you are not lucky enough to live in the Pacific Northwest Susan Bradley coaches you through substituting fresh local food from your area. In a time of high gas prices and questionable products from far away places, cooking with local seasonal foods not only makes good sense but makes you a better chef. After several "dud" cookbooks lately I was hoping to find another one by this author... maybe one's in the works? Anyway, this is a must to own.

Susan Bradley is one of the best, inspired, and knowledgeable cookbook authors in addition to being a fabulous chef. I was fortunate enough to attend classes which she taught in Washington. Each and every one of the recipes in her book are perfect, resulting from intensive testing and her formidable knowledge of flavors, ingredients and execution. Even if you don't live in the Pacific Northwest, this is a must have cookbook. This has always been my "go-to" cookbook and although I've attended cooking classes in France as well, I would aways defer to Susan Bradley's advice and instructions in this cookbook if I ever have a question or need inspiration.
