Do you have a significant other? Do you cook for them, or sometimes think about getting them excited about cooking for you? Welcome to the world of Jason Sobocinski.
Mr. Sobocinski’s book Caseus Fromagerie Bistro Cookbook: Every Cheese Has a Story was a purchase from a local used book store, and I gently placed it one evening before my husband came home on the coffee table near the TV. I was only slightly surprised to see that he had picked it up on his own, unlike the more girly or celebrity-oriented books I occasionally purchase. Perhaps it was the cover photo of cheese? Who knows, Mike spent the next hour talking about food and cooking with me. Win!
Inside of this book you’ll find great photos, but more importantly at least 5 recipes that you’ll want to dive right into as soon as you get home from work. Some examples are Marcona Almond Pesto Pasta, French Onion Soup, Goat Cheese and Leek Tarts (which I made and will talk about in another post), and a really nice looking Sheep’s Milk Yogurt Panna Cotta. To be honest, I wouldn’t mind trying any one of the recipes in the book, although I might want to reserve the Peach and Chevre Ravioli for a summer dinner.
