This review is from: Dirt Candy: A Cookbook: Flavor-Forward Food from the Upstart New York City Vegetarian Restaurant (Paperback)
I'm biased because I've eaten at Dirt Candy, and love the food there. I also read a lot of indy comic books - I suggest Kate or Die if you find a copy, so I love the graphic novel format Amanda Cohen, Dunlavey, and Hendrix use. I was first introduced to Amanda's cooking through the Iron Chef episode, and I love the history she provides in this book along with her cooking methods.
Super +1 - she gives the complete recipe for the smoked cauliflower and horseradish sauce with waffle dish, which is my favorite of her dishes.
One improvement would be to let us know what her pickling spice breakdown is for the pickled shiitake recipe. I do understand everyone has their own pickle spice ratio they think is best, but I would love to know Ms. Cohen's particular blend.
