BG Charter Member, Chris Cosentino’s first cookbook Beginnings: My Way to Start a Meal recently hit stores with a splash. The 60+ recipe book features simple, seasonal dishes that inspire readers to make use of local farmers markets. The book has a personal feel to it with handwritten notes about and sketches of the dishes. There is only one offal recipe in the collection, but we love him, veggies and all. Read the SF Weekly review below, and then go out there and get a copy and support Chris!
