2.0 out of 5 stars Not at all what I expected, November 6, 2008
This review is from: The Farm to Table Cookbook: The Art of Eating Locally (Hardcover)
I put this cookbook on my wish list after seeing an article about it and then I received it as a gift. I'm pretty sure that at the time I put it on my list there must not have been a preview available or I'm certain I would not have put this one on my list. I was expecting a more practical approach of using local produce and other locals foods for everyday cooking, not special occasion cooking. I was very disappointed in the content when I saw that the recipes were a bit more high end and labor intense than I expected. If you're a gourmet cook you might like this one, but as a southerner we prefer our day to day foods to be pretty simple. This cookbook isn't practical for me and after looking through it, I knew it just wasn't the kind of cookbook I would ever buy or enjoy. To be honest I have several hundred cookbooks and more than a couple that I purchased through the mail ended up being like this one - ones that I simply don't ever turn to - so I exchanged this one for one a bit more realistic for my needs and one that I knew for sure I would use.
