From Chef Donna's Review:

Cook Like a Local may just be the modern equivalent to The Silver Palate Cookbook or The Joy of Cooking. It's everything you want a cookbook to be. It has a place on your kitchen counter so you can leisurely flip through for ideas and inspiration, it gives you solid information and an education – if you care to read it, and there are recipes that you really want to cook. Best of all you can cook them with the ingredients you’ll likely have in your pantry. Chef, restaurateur, and now author, Chris Shepherd uses Houston, Texas as a reference point for his idea of “local.” But you won’t be cooking steak, ribs, and baked potatoes. The book’s cover picturing cilantro, shishitos, and crispy wings, is all you need see to understand the range of culturally-inspired dishes waiting for you inside. Shepherd shows you how to translate six specific ingredients into incredible flavors and with that, opens your eyes to a world of culture, common people, and regional cuisine that isn't just in his backyard, but yours too.
