The new cookbook Fork in the Road with Eric Villegas (Huron River Press) is a companion to Chef Eric’s award-winning national PBS cooking show of the same title.
The 192-page, hard cover, book is filled with gorgeous food & other photography that sweeps you across the magical mitten, the great state of Michigan. From north to south and east to west Chef Villegas covers the great agricultural heritage of the state in his sumptuous recipes.
Fork in the Road clearly goes hand-in-hand with “unkle e’s” TV persona, capturing his funny and energetic personality. The recipes, written in clear, easy to follow instructions will appeal to the serious cook as well as the novice. Chef Villegas puts his own creative spin on traditional, natural, organic and wholesome Michigan cuisine. The book is organized roughly by the regions of the state: Freshwater, The Fruit Belt, Middle of the Mitt, The Thumb, The U.P., and The Great Lakes Pantry.
In Eric’s travels throughout the state, he meets Michigan’s growers, bottlers, producers, and farmers and purchases their products to use these ingredients in his recipes. Whether on TV or in the book, “unkle e” rambles on about all things related to food. Chef Eric gives his insights into the culinary foodstuffs of the great state of Michigan and cooking tips to help you “gastronauts” know step-by-step how to prepare the recipes – all of this and more delivered in his spirited “unkle e” way!
