Love this book so far! I've had the first book for years now and almost everything I make with it is "restaurant quality", according to the fam. So I was really excited to see this in the catalog when searching for the first book to borrow while I made some repairs to my well-used copy at home. I have made only one recipe from this one and it was as good or maybe even better than everything I've made from the first, so I bought it and will work my way through it! Can't possibly "complete" a cookbook within the library borrowing period, but it's definitely possible try a few recipes, and read the text of this one to see if a purchase is in order--lots of love for farmers' markets and gardening for the kitchen. BTW, the first book really taught me a lot about how to cook and why you go through various steps to improve flavor, but this book centers more on teaching where our food comes from, and how to take your cooking to the next level with the unprecedented freshness and variety that growing (or at least knowing how to source via farmers) your own produce can yield. My only concern is that the Central Library has this categorized as 641.555 (Fast Food) instead of 641.5 (Cooking, recipes) like the first volume--why on earth are they not both "Cooking, recipes"? This is certainly not any faster than the first volume--in fact, I'd say it would be slower, because the idea is to grow your own food, or at least to buy it on the farmers' market's schedule.
