The Chefs Collaborative Cookbook: Local, Sustainable, Delicious: Recipes from America's Great Chefs - Chefs Collaborative, Ellen Jackson For what this book could have offered, I was very disappointed with what it offered. The recipes were incredibly unusual with very little known veggies and meats (eg, beef cheeks~WTH?!?!) Furthermore, although this recipe is supposed to be local/sustainable, I found that an incredible amount of the recipes would require ordering ingredients in or them being shipped in. On a final note, this would not be a family cookbook. The recipes, imho, are not family friendly.
