For example, Georges Perrier, the chef proprietor of Le Bec-Fin and Georges’ in Philadelphia, offers Isabelle’s TouTou’ Food,” and Eli Zabar, owner of six chic eateries in New York City conjures up Bread Soup for Dogs.” Each recipe is unique, healthful, and fun to make (and chow down on).
You don’t need to be a chef (or even a terrible good cook) to master the recipes in this book, and your dog won’t mind if you accidentally double the chicken, cheese, or quinoa!
