When I first saw this book I was a little concerned. A cookbook by professional chefs. How many recipes would involve ingredients I’ve never heard of, require techniques that I have no clue how to do and utensils I’ve never heard of?
I’m happy to say the majority of the recipes are very user friendly and they range from a couple of ingredient treats to full meals, though I am still looking for bee pollen any idea where I could pick some up? :)
The book contains 30 recipes and each is accompanied by a brief biography of the chef and their dog, along with beautiful photos of them both. These two to three pages are followed by the recipes, which there are no pictures of. I enjoyed reading about how each chef welcomed their dogs into their homes and why they decided to cook for there pups.
Since I had all the ingredients on hand, and you probably do too, I decided to start with a batch of
Cornelia’s Vegan Yummy Critter Treats (page 73)
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
2. In a large bowl mix banana, whole wheat flour and oats stirring well. Once well combined slowly add honey until dough is formed
3. Knead dough into ball and roll onto a floured surface 1/4 inch thick and cut with the straight edge and score the dough horizontally and then vertically to make a grid (I used a pizza cutter). Be careful to score the dough, not completely cut through.
4. Place on your prepared cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow the treats to remain for an additional hour to allow them to harden.
Makes 3 to 4 dozen Biscuits.
