    I picked up this gorgeous, high-quality book from my public library expecting to tab several pages and copy them into my workbook for future food prep. Nope, after reading the introductory chapter and flipping through the remainder, there is so much here that I am eager to prepare that this one is definitely going to have to be purchased and added into the library. At a certain level all cookbooks are aspirational, right? But the sheer point of this one is sharing food we like with people we lik I picked up this gorgeous, high-quality book from my public library expecting to tab several pages and copy them into my workbook for future food prep. Nope, after reading the introductory chapter and flipping through the remainder, there is so much here that I am eager to prepare that this one is definitely going to have to be purchased and added into the library. At a certain level all cookbooks are aspirational, right? But the sheer point of this one is sharing food we like with people we like--everything from small plates on the back porch or around the coffee table to more sit-down with table cloth (but not the stuffy-one) affairs. Kahan, an accomplished chef and Chicago restauranteur, pulls together a host of items that can have a good bit of the prep done in advance so that the host/cook gets to spend the bulk of their time enjoying the visit (and food and drink) with their guests and not frantically to-ing and fro-ing in the kitchen or over the grill. These are real dishes, that normal cooks with pets, hectic lives, and messy houses can prepare for the people they love. He shares several items from his restaurant, and we will definitely be making the bacon-wrapped, chorizo-stuffed dates in the not too distant future. This is a beautiful, high-quality cookbook. It (the one I buy and not the one from my public library) will stand up well to life on the counter being held open to the right page by the potato masher with what will doubtless be accumulated spills and splats over the years. The paper is high quality, the illustrations are full-color and enticing, and it very much conveys an unfussy "let's get our feed on" vibe. It would make a lovely gift for the home cooks in your life. Great work, Mr. Kahan, and I will definitely check out your restaurant, avec, the next time we are in Chicago.

    I love the premise of this book: to make some food to eat while you cook, especially while enjoying the time with your friends and family. Paul Kahan presents this endeavor in thirteen steps in thirteen chapters. The recipes are quite approachable, some a little more difficult than others but all are definitely creative and current. The photos are gorgeous. I have tried two recipes so far - Roasted Chicken with Smashed and Crisped Potatoes and Green Sauce #1 and Olive Oil Cake, and both were fan I love the premise of this book: to make some food to eat while you cook, especially while enjoying the time with your friends and family.
