I previously wrote about my friend Chad Ward‘s great book, An Edge in the Kitchen, which discusses everything you’d ever want to know about knives, but if you’re looking for a gift for someone who’s into food, then get this book. I’m not going to tell you how great it is, I’ll leave it to the experts. Slate.com named it one of the best books of 2008 (not just food books, ALL books). The Chicago Tribune named it one of the best food books of 2008. We have an “award-winning’ book writer in our midst, so pick up a copy, go to Chad’s website, and drop him a note, telling him how much you love it. Heck, if he has time, he may even offer to sign it for you!
