I enjoyed reading about the different farms the author visited. Each has a unique area of expertise and an interesting story. One featured farm is the Christopher Ranch in Gilroy, CA, which is famous for the garlic they grow. Mary Navarette's Garlic Chicken Enchiladas is hands-down the best and most unique enchilada I've ever made or eaten. It's just fabulous. The price of the book is worth it just to get this recipe. However, there are many other good recipes in the book also.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I've had a lot of cookbooks and worked in a lot of kitchens. In my opinion, this is the best home cooking cookbook ever. The recipes are easy to follow and the tastes are magnificent.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Everything in this cookbook is GREAT! I've had it for 10 years, and have loved everything i've made. As on the farm, butter & oil are used generously, and if you want to be a bit more healthy, you can make some substitutes. But still use some of the original stuff. I've done it without spoiling the tastes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
