This handsome, 500-copy limited edition book is the kind of specialized creative project we truly enjoying carrying and sharing with those who enjoy unusual books representing the passion of folks who work hard to produce extraordinary food. It features 29 recipes from 36 regional chefs and restaurants using the products of Raven & Boar, a small, family-owned farm in Columbia County, NY, specializing in heritage breed pigs.
Each recipe is accompanied by original photographic artwork by Duke, who founded the farm with her husband; the pair are also restaurant designers,something reflected in the book’s crisp aesthetic. Among the recipe contributors are Rich Torrisi & Anthony Coffey (boar’s head sandwich); Jamie Bissonnette (baharat sausage); Frank Falcinelli & Frank Castronovo (jagerwurst); Bill Telepan (meatballs braised with sauerkraut); and Marco Canora & George Kadan (pork ragu). A remarkable tribute to the respect and affection culinary professionals have for Raven & Boar.
Color and black-and-white photographs throughout. Hardcover.
