"Yin is co-owner of Fork, a popular restaurant in Philadelphia’s Old City, and its offshoot, Fork:etc., a gourmet market next door. Fork has just celebrated its tenth anniversary, and Yin’s very personal cookbook offers a heartfelt narrative of the restaurant’s first decade. The 100 recipes are grouped chronologically into such chapters as “Fork Grows Up” and “From Amour to Amore” (there is also a handy listing of recipes by course), and stories about the chefs and other staff, along with Yin’s own culinary adventures, provide the behind-the-scenes story. The book is attractively designed, and there are color photos throughout of the food, the restaurant, and the people involved. For area libraries and where restaurant books are popular."
"Fork is one of Philly's greatest assets. For those of us for which Fork is more than an hour away we can now bring a little bit of Fork home with us, beyond the lovely memories. If books were edible I'd start with this one."
