Genius Recipes, Quite Possibly

When it is lunch time and I am faced with another wonderful grilled cheese from the lunchroom (they are truly good) I take my compostable  lunch tray and retreat to my desk for 20 minutes of Food52. And when I heard that I could find so much of Food52 in an actual book, which I always prefer, I was giddy.

Genius Recipes appeared early in the summer, a perfect slow morning read, a cup of tea and and the start of a lovely summer day. We got along immediately.

Genius is a big word, not to be tossed around and used lightly. And this one, not only genius but subtitled, 100 Recipes That Will Change the Way You Cook, oh my, such lofty aspirations. Not just the smartest child in the class but the most outgoing and well behaved also, you don't say?

One cup of tea turned into two. Ideas for summer tomatoes and holiday parties, notes scratched in my food journal, beautiful pictures and well thought out recipes, all the ingredients for a perfectly lovely summer morning. And later that day, Marcella Hazan's buttery rich tomato sauce, simmering on the stove; from start to finish a culinarily perfect day. Genius? Perhaps, but most certainly at the top of the class.

Through Blogging for Books, I received a copy of this book for review purposes. Delicious.
