Book of the Week #31

Cotton: The Cookbook by Jeffrey Paige; photographs by Brian Smestad; Foreword by John Clayton (Portsmouth: Blue Tree, 2009)

I have featured the beautiful work of Portsmouth photographer Brian Smestad before. Here he has teamed up with Manchester chef Jeffrey Paige to create a book that looks as delicious as a meal at Cotton actually is. Black and white images of the restaurant staff are mixed in with gorgeous full page color images of the food.
Jeffrey Paige is the author of several books of recipes from his time at the Canterbury Shaker Village, and here he has presented 25 favorites from the menu at Cotton. Pan-fried crab cakes, the wedge, buttermilk fried chicken, meatloaf, and the pomegranate martini are all included.
