In case you have not been around me in the last week, I’m clucking a lot about this little book, You’re the Chef, the companion to A Smart Girls Guide:Food. Charming illustrations by Elisa Chavarri, excellent editing by Trula Magruder and Darcie Johnston, mouth-watering photos by Chris Hynes, terrific art direction and design by Gretchen Becker are the bones of this book. My recipes and writing are fortunate enough to have a beautiful and sturdy form on which to hang.
There are sandwiches. Of course there are sandwiches. You’re the Chef is for anyone happy in the kitchen and wanting to learn some basics, and on to not-so-basics. Sandwiches are foundational, says me.
