Playing With My Food ~
A journal about food, thought, travel, and life; by Chef & Raconteur Chaz French.


So, I’ve been talking with friends lately and trying to find inspiration for things to make and things to try with food while I have this unplanned downtime.

As I mentioned in the Focaccia post I’ve been looking through my favorite cookbooks and choosing some of those things to make.

I bought the book below some time ago, so long that Amazon doesn’t remember when I purchased it. And I obviously spent some time going through it. I vaguely recall this may have been around April 2006 when my job got crazy busy and stayed that way. So, the book went on the shelf, and I just grabbed from there tonight and had a total WTF !?? moment.

I think I’ve found the inspiration I was looking for, some of them seem to have been tagged for skills reasons more than taste. But I think it’s clear I need to spend some time in The Book of Appetizers.
