The Cooking with Books Extravaganza starts with “Edible Brooklyn: The Cookbook”. The history of Brooklyn is a difficult one to describe; how can you describe such a melting pot of cultures, especially if one is focusing on Brooklyn’s edibles. That’s were “Edible Brooklyn: The Cookbook” (Edited by Rachel Wharton) comes in. It walks you through Brooklyn, holding your hand and whispering snippets of history here and there. This cookbook takes you on a literal tour of delis, confection shops, butcher shops, bars and more, sharing in each spot a delicious recipe that tells the story of where it came from, how it’s made and why it’s “Brooklyn”. Today I’m sharing the recipe for the MOST addictive, most delicious caramel corn I’ve ever tried. It’s got bacon, coffee, bourbon and maple syrup. What else do you need in life!?!
