Kitchen Scraps by Pierre Lamielle. From the inside cover: “Remember your mother’s favourite cookbook? The one dog-eared to the hamburger with canned soup recipe? This isn’t that cookbook. And what about that cookbook your too-perfect friend has? The one where all the recipes are about stacking things on top of each other and garnishing them with a hard-to-find leaf? This isn’t that cookbook either.”
It’s true; I’ve never seen a cookbook like this one. The recipes look good (I confess I haven’t tried any yet), but it’s the crazy illustrations and witty stories before (and during…and after…) the recipes that really set it apart. It’s super-creative. I liked it a lot.
Highly recommended, even for those who don’t cook.
