April Bloomfield takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of her celebrated restaurants and into her own kitchen in A Girl and Her Pig: Recipes and Stories. With an emphasis on seasonal produce and a nose-to-nail ethos, the cookbook combines exquisite yet refreshingly straightforward recipes with captivating narratives that describe Bloomfield's journey from industrial Birmingham, England, to the apex of the culinary world.
