Book: The American Craft Cookbook
  
Author: John Holl
 
Narrator (if applicable):n/a

Release date (if applicable): August 27, 2013

Synopsis: A collection of 175 pub recipes that are meant to be partnered with beer. Recipes were across the board...appetizers, soups/salads, sandwiches, main dishes and even desserts. 

Recipes included:

+ Chicken Wings with Bacon BBQ Sauce
+ Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce
+ Amber Ale Cheese Bread
+ Cheddar Ale Soup
+ Hanger Steak with Gorgonzola Sauce
 
My rating: 4 Stars
 
My opinion: This was one really cool cookbook. This was pub food at its finest. Some recipes did strike me as a bit more difficult to make so maybe take a look at a sample first. Furthermore, some struck me as foods that would NEVER cross my lips (such as pork belly).

The pictures in this book were A-MAZING! So beautiful and captured brew houses and the food beautifully.  Due to the complication of some of the recipes, I would have liked to have seen photographs related to food prep.
