At its heart, this book is about my passionate relationship to food. I wrote this book, quite simply, for people who love to cook. It’s not intended to blow minds, or turn cooking into a lab experiment. Cooking should be inclusionary, not exclusionary. We gather in the kitchen because it’s comforting, and it harkens back to the happy feelings that a warm, aromatic kitchen instilled in us as kids.
For years, Chef Butters had talked about doing a cookbook. I supported the idea and in the back of my mind hoped that he would ask me to be the book’s photographer. I was over the moon when he trusted me with his work and am forever grateful for the collaboration on this wonderful, award-winning cookbook.
