Recipes from The Brisket Book

The Brisket Book

Almost every cookbook has a brisket recipe, but brisket doesn’t have a cookbook—until now. With 30 recipes (some from notable chefs), as well as tips, quotes, stories, cartoons, sidebars, and lots of photos and illustrations, The Brisket Book is a witty and entertaining homage to a Sunday-supper staple.
