Sheila Lukins author of Sheila Lukins' All Around the World
Cookbook, coauthor of the Silver Palate cookbooks Just
between us chickens, there's nothing more alluring that I can think
of right now than immersing myself in the culinary delights of Todd
English. From the first moment I walked into Olives and nibbled on
the namesake, an explosion of flavor led the way. I've longed to
follow every chance I've had.
Jasper White author of Jasper White's Cooking from New England and Lobster at Home Todd and Sally have made Olives' food come alive in this collection of bold flavors and lusty food combinations. Todd puts his mark on every recipe, never missing the chance to intensify the flavor or texture of a dish. Reading these recipes made me unbearably hungry...deep-fried stuffed olives, Parmesan pudding, butternut squash tortelli, rabbit agrodolce, marinated lamb with olive bruschetta...This book will make you want to rush to a market and back home again to start cooking.
Lydia Shire chef-owner of Biba and Pignoli This book is Todd. Who else would describe their love of cooking as "lust"?...Just try the foie gras flan to believe it or char the skin of a fig while the gorgonzola oozes.
