10 Ways of Preparing…Figs & Bread Book Bundle
+ $ shipping surcharge
Books with a purpose.
Sometimes it's useful to really learn one thing well, in the kitchen and in life. With that in mind, approach cooking using these two books from the "10 Ways of Preparing" series -- a unique collection of 250 titles. These cookbooks each feature 1 ingredient or theme, with a short introduction followed by 10 recipes. This bundle includes the fig book -- with some personal history -- and the bread book -- covering how to cook verses bake with bread, and clever ideas to use up leftovers.
These books have been sold out for 10 years, and this extremely limited edition release is the first in English. With beautiful illustrations (by the author's father!) and simple, fantastic recipes, these are a rare kitchen find to be passed down through generations.
