    As a friend of one of the authors, I know how much hard work went into this masterpiece A longer review to come, after I finish perusing the final product, which may take some time There is so much in this book to digest, which I mean both in the literal, recipe sense as well as in the wealth of information and beautiful photography this book contains.
