Over the moon with Sam’s book! The recipes are both accessible and inspiring to work with. What makes it even more amazing is the added bits and pieces of Sam’s life in the pages. I felt as though the stories were being told to me in person. There’s a lot in here that resonates. Highly recommending this to anyone interested!
