Cookbook: Buvette: The Pleasure of Good Food by Jody Williams
Overall Impression: This book is for lovers of simple, good, unfussy food. From soft scrambled eggs to sumptuous lentils, Buvette has each meal and moment covered to the fullest. I can't put this one down.
Buvette is my favorite restaurant in New York City. I discovered it a few years ago with my partner Sam as we were stumbling through the West Village one hot, muggy July morning. We shared strong coffee, soft scrambled eggs and little currant scones, lingering for what must have been at least two hours, maybe three. So when the cookbook came out a few months ago, I couldn't wait to get an inside glimpse into some of the recipes we've tried and love.
