In over 1,000 pages, 550 full-color photographs, and 90+ recipes, it ranges from haute to snack, comforting to exotic, hyper-local to the universally enjoyed: A Tuscan plate of Fritto Misto. Saffron Buns for breakfast in downtown Stockholm. A frozen Milky Way. Black truffles from Le Périgord. Dinner at the French Laundry.
The entries brim with Sheraton’s passion for gastronomy, so much so that her artful and exquisite descriptions make even the feature on Oatmeal Porridge feel exotic and enticing. Then, following the romance, the practical: where to taste the dish or find the ingredient, and where to go for the best recipes. The resulting compilation of entries will serve to educate and inspire the full spectrum of eaters.
