Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-11-15)

Writing for busy cooks with access to a wide range of ingredients, McDonough (editor, the city cook.com) begins with basics like stocking a pantry and refrigerator; tools, pots, and pans; and how to shop. She offers flavorful, simple recipes to prepare for the family or guests-Baked Peach and Bourbon Ham is sure to please. Resources include some of the best urban markets in the United States (listing addresses, phone numbers, and websites), online merchants for specific ingredients, and organizations (websites provided). The photographs portray people in markets rather than finished recipes. Recommended-urban cooking has been a neglected topic.
