Accompanying the recipes are countless notes and comments from the author, as well as plenty of beautiful photos of finished recipes that give you an idea of what each dish should look like when you cook it yourself. The cookbook has also been written and designed with cooks of all skill levels in mind, as there are a wide variety of easy, intermediate, and advanced recipes within.

If you have allergies or just don't like to eat a certain type of food for ethical, environmental, or nutritional reasons, the cookbook also includes some simple instructions on how to make many of its recipes vegetarian, gluten-free, or lactose-free. There's also a section at the end of the book that goes over some dietary considerations, which will no doubt be helpful to folks trying to watch what they eat.

You can purchase the physical hardcover edition of the cookbook for $29 (down from $40 thanks to a sale) or the Kindle eBook version for $14 on Amazon at the time of writing. The price of the cookbook may be different in your local bookstores, but we anticipate that the cost will hover around the $30-40 mark.
