This is part of my Summer Reads 2018 series where I’ll be reviewing a series of “not just cookbooks”. Ok, to be fair, this week’s Summer Reads pick is kind of a cookbook. But it’s such a different type of cookbook that I think it qualifies as a great summer read (just one that will […]

French Fridays: Smoky barbecue-style pork from My Paris Kitchen

The recipe for Cook the Book Fridays from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen is one I’ll be making again and again – one of the easiest and most flavourful pulled pork recipes I’ve made. Paprika, chipotle powder, cumin, cinnamon, and cocoa powder form the base of a dry rub that the pork shoulder sits in […]
