Cook the Book: 'The Art of Eating Cookbook'

20120129-190358-the-art-of-eating-cookbook.jpgSelf-published from his home state of Vermont, Edward Behr's The Art of Eating is one of the most captivating food publications around. Dedicated to finding the best food and wine and sharing their stories, this quarterly magazine brings a vivid sense of place to each subject that it broaches.

To celebrate the magazine's twenty-fifth year, Behr has curated a cookbook of his most beloved recipes. The Art of Eating Cookbook is a book of traditional recipes, both French and Italian, each dish complete with well-researched notes from Behr about technique, place, and significance. It's a collection of classic recipes that are timeless in their deliciousness.

For this week's Cook the Book we'll be serving up an Edward Behr approved menu of favorites including a simple Provençal Beet Salad with Anchovies, Sicilian Swordfish with Olives, Celery, Garlic, Vinegar, and Mint and Carbonade à la Gueze, beef braised in sour beer.
