Book Club – March 2014
Selengut, a Pacific Northwesterner, has showcased her talent for cooking, witty writing, and sustainable seafood practices in this one-of-a-kind cookbook. Bring the Gin-and-Tonic Cured Albacore to the next party you attend and you’ll be guaranteed an invite back.
Recipes to try:
Steamers (Clams) with Beer
Dungeness Crab Mac-and-Cheese
Scallops, Grits, and Greens
Gin-and-Tonic Cured Albacore
Not cookbooks, per say, but other books (memoirs, novels, short essays) centered around the joys of cooking and eating.
These two books would make an excellent gift for any soon-to-be-parent (or any parent, for that matter). Both are written by American women living in France, trying to raise their children to be well behaved and adventurous eaters, as most French children are. I read both of these around the time our toddler started on solid foods, and it has shaped the way we approach mealtimes, snacks, and good table manners. This is also a great book for parents who want to reform a picky eater!
