Online chef sensation, Jennifer Segal, has developed a considerable following for her home-tested recipes. Today she introduced the release of her first cook book – Once Upon a Chef, 100 Tested, Perfected, and Family-Approved Recipes. I’ve subscribed to Jennifer’s email feed for years now, and though they include more desserts than I can feature with wine pairings, her savory dishes all replicate quite well in our home.
Because Jennifer also happens to be a talented photographer, she normally shoots her own food shots, and they are clear, simple and well-shot. So I was surprised to see that her cookbook photos were shot by Alexandra Gablewski. I can only presume Jennifer hired her for this project because Alexandra is even better than Jennifer, which only builds the anticipation for the release of this book, now avaialable for pre-order. And at just under $30, add this book to your short list of gifts for friends and family.
And, as always, let me know if you need help pairing wines with any of Jennifer’s recipes!
