Cookbook Review: The Modern Café

I recently had the privilege of writing my first cookbook review for The Daring Kitchen, a worldwide community of cooks and bakers.  After six weeks of testing and analyzing the recipes and content of the book, it was published today on The Daring Kitchen website.   

Tested Recipe for House-Cured Duck Ham, pp.339-341
Excerpted from the published review:
In the space between a Michelin three-star restaurant and a neighborhood bistro, an artful coffee-table book and technical cooking manual, emerges The Modern Café by Francisco J. Migoya. Illustrated with sumptuous full page color photography by Ben Fink, this cookbook is a feast for the eyes.

Migoya, who teaches a class on Café Operations as part of the Baking and Pastry Arts Program at the Culinary Institute of America, delivers a comprehensive cookbook encompassing all the possible areas of a café’s various departments from baked goods and savory food to beverages and packaged retail items.
