Recipe
January 22, 2021
I was gifted a copy of Sunday Supper’s by Suzanne Goin some 15 years ago. In that time I have probably prepared a handful of recipes which is more a reflection of the involvement the book requires. Broken up be Seasons, you would be wise to stick to the one you are currently in and have access to a good Farmer’s Market.
