Tower is widely recognized as one of the country's greatest cooks. In this extraordinary and yet approachable cookbook, he presents 250 new recipes representing the last 15 years of his thinking and his cooking. Dishes range from American regional specialties, such as Soft Shell crab Po' Boy Sandwich and Cowboy-style Fire-roasted Onions, to continental classics made with Jeremiah's spin, such as Braised Rabbit with Prunes, Catalan style; or Fresh Morel Mushroom Stew with Fava Beans and Peas.
More than a cookbook, however, this book reveals the author's gift as a writer and storyteller. Indeed, this absorbing volume is almost as rewarding to read as to cook from. The result is a publication of exceptional delights from a marvelous writer and a brilliant cook.
