my name is pat salvaggio im a 28 year old chef from Scranton, PA. Three years ago i began writing my first cookbook WHAT'S THE OCCASION? is a cookbook that i self published last year. i immediately began to conjure up ideas for a follow up book after i saw my first book in print. my newest book that i am beginning this month is still untitled but will be a cookbook that concentrates on soups and sandwiches for beginner cooks that will include lots of homegrown recipes such as home made ketchup, mustard, breads, spreads, dressings, soups, protein preparations, sauces. there will be a lot of focus on real natural ingredients and focus on simplicity in recipes as opposed to complexity of processed food labels. let me know what ya think everyone my old book is on amazon if you want to check it out.
