Description

In the multi-touch edition of A Girl and Her Pig, April Bloomfield takes home cooks on an intimate tour of the food that has made her a star. Thoughtful, voice-driven recipes go behind the scenes of Bloomfield's lauded restaurants— The Spotted Pig, The Breslin, and The John Dory—and into her own home kitchen, where her attention to detail and reverence for honest ingredients result in unforgettable dishes that reflect her love for the tactile pleasures of cooking and eating. Bloomfield's innovative yet refreshingly straightforward recipes, which pair her English roots with a deeply Italian influence, offer an unfailingly modern and fresh sensibility and showcase her bold flavors, sensitive handling of seasonal produce, and nose-to-tail ethos. A cookbook as delightful and lacking in pretention as Bloomfield herself, A Girl and Her Pig combines exquisite food with charming narratives on Bloomfield's journey from working-class England to the apex of the culinary world, along with loving portraits of the people who have guided her along the way.

Publishers Weekly Review

Apr 09, 2012 – With an unabashed love of food and quality ingredients, Bloomfield, the British chef behind popular NYC eateries The Spotted Pig (which has a Michelin Star), The Breslin, and The John Dory, rolls up her sleeves and invites readers into the kitchen as she shares recipes for many of her signature dishes in this outstanding collection. Included here are must-haves from The Spotted Pig, such as the Gnudi, Smoked Haddock Chowde,r and her ethereal Chopped Chicken Liver on Toast, as well as Roasted Veal Shanks with White Wine and Shallots and Chicken Adobo, providing would-be chefs with more than enough encouragement to try their hand at her unique takes on comfort food. The majority of the recipes are fairly simple as long as the reader is patient and pays attention to detail, but a few, such as the labor-intensive Beef and Bayley Hazen Pie, roasted lamb heads, and a whole suckling pig may best be left to Bloomfield. Realistic (and gorgeous) photos of the dishes and charming anecdotes scattered throughout suffuse this cookbook with a welcome personal touch, appropriate for the oeuvre of a chef who "like to touch food, to know it." Even if readers have never set foot in one of Bloomfield's establishments, they'll likely be blown away by her creativity, passion, and good taste. Photos.

Lovely

Rare is the cookbook you want to read cover to cover, but this is it. A delightful read and absolutely scrumptious recipes.

I don't think the PETA activist below is being helpful; anyone who is looking at a cookbook that isn't vegetarian…isn't vegetarian.

Delicious read

I enjoy eating at April's restaurants and I loved this fun interactive cookbook. Don't mind the PETA crazies - this book is for the ultimate food lovers.

This is how an iPad formatted cookbook should be~A Must Buy

This is a beautifully formatted cookbook. I had to buy it just because it was so beautiful. It's interactive, you can enlarge the words and photos, I can not give it enough praise. It's everything I'm looking for in an iPad cookbook. Heads up Mario Batali, Tyler Florence, et. all celeb chefs, THIS is how your iPad books should be.
