As a full time cook at Back Forty in the East Village section of New York City, she has ample time to learn new cooking techniques and come up with some pretty stellar recipes, showing her readers just what her cooking style is all about. Perry writes her blog in a straightforward and honest manner that I can’t help but love; here it is, I made it, it’s amazing, you should make it too.
Perry is a cook, a writer, a photographer and above all else, a food lover. For her, it isn’t so much about making beautiful dishes so people can gawk at a lovely photo, it’s about taking fresh ingredients and making them into something that tastes truly extraordinary. Perry also talks about her love for pickling and includes some amazing recipes for Pickled Shrimp, Pickled Grapes and Pickled Mushrooms, items that would do wonders in just about any light spring dish.
For a truly enticing breakfast, try Perry’s take on Buttermilk French Toast or the Oeufs en Cocotte. And for a hearty dinner followed by an exquisite dessert, try the Shrimp and Grits or the Hungarian Goulash with the Strawberry Brown Butter Bettys.
