    I never thought I d actually sit and read a cookbook from cover to cover but this one captured my attention and just wouldn t let me go I loved it And I was born, raised, and am currently residing in Portland but I still learned a lot about my hometown Thank you

    This book makes me wish I lived closer to Portland, but I guess the recipes and great stories throughout will have to suffice.

    I m not sure what I was expecting, having eaten here, but every recipe calls for foie gras or rabbit or something I can t easily get at the store There wasn t a single recipe that I could try.

    Here is a book that any real foodie will like, even though some of the wonderful photographs might be viewed as a little creepy or scary by many.So, what do you get from this richly illustrated, thick tome written by some of the team who create the culinary magic at the Portland, Oregon based Le Pigeon restaurant Things start with a genuinely interesting little introduction that explains the history of the restaurant to date and, unlike many books, this is not ego city Then it is straight Here is a book that any real foodie will like, even though some of the wonderful photographs might be viewed as a little creepy or scary by many.So, what do you get from this richly illustrated, thick tome written by some of the team who create the culinary magic at the Portland, Oregon based Le Pigeon restaurant Things start with a genuinely interesting little introduction that explains the history of the restaurant to date and, unlike many books, this is not ego city Then it is straight to the kitchen to get cooking.The recipes are split into curiously named chapters called Lettuce and Such , Tongue , Fat Liver , Little Birds , Rabbit , Little Terry , Big Terry , Pork , Horns and Antlers , Lamb , Veg and Choco, Tart, Profit Some but not all may be fairly self explanatory Many of the recipes will appear high end and exclusive dining and yet when you look at the ingredients they might be everyday items that the typical consumer would avoid if they saw it in the food store Not that many people like cooking tongue, for example, yet it sure is a versatile part and a shame to ignore it.This is a book you need to really read through, at least once, to get the most out of it There is plenty of strange terminology at least to this reviewer and many funny anecdotes tucked away where you least expect them, such as a customer finding a bullet lodged in a long cooked piece of tongue If you are prepared to push the envelope a bit and trust in the authors then you will not be disappointed This is one of those very few books that can be classed as truly different , an inner sanctum for foodies and food curious people, yet the authors did not need to rely on tricks or strange food combinations to create this masterpiece The food speaks for itself.In some ways the sheer, stark nature of some of the photographs isalarming than the recipes and their textual descriptions Cooked pigeon legs sticking out of a plastic container is not a typical image for a cookbook, that is for sure Yet the photographs are artwork in their own right, such as that used to illustrate Rabbit and Eel Terrine.It is unfortunate that our usual niggles exist in this book lack of an estimated preparation cooking time and use of sole U.S measures but this book remains sufficiently different, engaging and detailed that you just want ,andThe instructions given are clear, to the point but through so as long as you can follow a recipe and don t burn water you would have no problems.This won t be a book for everybody and if the idea of cooking less common ingredients is possibly not for you, consider checking this book out in a bookstore first There arecommon ingredient recipes inside too, but for this author at least part of the charm and appeal is the use of less common ingredients.One must underline that this book is capable of being suitable for everybody and not just elite gastronomes You might, however, need to be less squeamish or picky and disassociate rabbit as just being something fluffy that hops around a field If you only consider one out of the ordinary book this year, give some strong consideration to this one.Le Pigeon Cooking at the Dirty Bird, written by Gabriel Rucker, Meredith Erickson, Lauren Fortgang Andrew Fortgang and published by Ten Speed Press ISBN 9781607744443, 352 pages Typical price USD40 YYYYY This review appeared in YUM.fi and is reproduced here in full with permission of YUM.fi YUM.fi celebrates the worldwide diversity of food and drink, as presented through the humble book Whether you call it a cookery book, cook book, recipe book or something else in the language of your choice YUM will provide you with news and reviews of the latest books on the marketplace

    I was hesitant about the meat forward recipes I knew would be in this book as I don t cook much meat at home these days, but the first recipe in the book BBQ celery root, mache and dulce de Bourgogne the BBQ sauce being made with an entire bottle of Beaujolais won me over immediately I actually wowed out loud at the description and the gorgeous photography Not to mention the friendly, fun vibe running through the book I want to make this food, but I also want to make it with these peo I was hesitant about the meat forward recipes I knew would be in this book as I don t cook much meat at home these days, but the first recipe in the book BBQ celery root, mache and dulce de Bourgogne the BBQ sauce being made with an entire bottle of Beaujolais won me over immediately I actually wowed out loud at the description and the gorgeous photography Not to mention the friendly, fun vibe running through the book I want to make this food, but I also want to make it with these people, or at least hang out in their restaurant So this book, succeeds, where many do not, at being a brief history of a popular restaurant, a compelling advertisement for visiting that restaurant, a playful account about food I love the fried quail Eggo and foie maple syrup version of chicken and waffles with gorgeous photographs of gorgeously plated food for example the radis beurre recipe simply radishes with butter but the butter is made with 3 types of roe and looks like it s filled with sea sprinkles and a solid cookbook in its own right It IS fancy And specialized There is a entire chapter for tongue recipes, and another for foie gras, but they are accessible for the home cook and thoughtfully accompanied by recipes that use up the leftover pieces probably how the tongue chapter came to be And broken up with dishes like how to make clams with Kielbasa and beer on the beach Highly recommend

    I didn t read all the recipes in this book, of course I m trying to reduce my consumption of meat and many of these are meat recipes However this may be the book to check if you need a recipe for elk, beef, or lamb tongue, or some other unusual and less common meat product Of course you might be able to just find those recipes on the Internet also.


  8. Caroline Caroline says:

    A cookbook to decorate your shelf but not to use for real Who cooks with the crazy things in the book The stories are very entertaining and his approach to food is like someone in a 1st world country, but it s likely better just to visit portland and eat at the restaurant which is wonderful , than attempt some of the crazy stuff here Yes, there are a handful of normal recipes.

    Got this as a gift for the in laws, with a gift certificate for the restaurant tucked inside Thumbed through it and was super impressed and excited by what it offered and the thoughtful feel that perfectly matched the restaurant.
