This cookbook, the unique idea of Victoria Krassensky, in collaboration with Craig Loud, showcases the multi-talented diversity of the men of Cambria. All are non-professional cooks who share a binding passion for culinary creation. You will meet 27 men of all ages (12 to 86) and walks of life. It includes 51 recipes and 164 pages of more than 400 beautiful color photos of food, nature and the enigmatic cooks of Cambria, who share their favorite recipes and life stories. Despite their different backgrounds, there is a common thread that drew them to Cambria, and embraced their love of cooking.
