Now these are the kinds of cookbooks my mom enjoys! She, being a librarian and all, loves cookbooks with some historical background or stories that accompany the dishes. She reads them cover to cover. I'll have to keep this one in mind. Thanks!
I plan to get a copy of this myself. I read a little bit of it in Barnes and Noble today.
I'll have to look for this book. I loved watching Jessica Harris years ago when she'd appear on Food Network shows.
