This cookbook was donated by my friend Russell Dean Lowell. From the website:
Be Prepared for the Adventure of a Lifetime... For the first time, one of the Northwest's most celebrated chefs is making his amazing life's journey, public. He offers us a peek inside his private journal and with the true spirit of a natural-born story teller, Russell takes us on the adventure of a lifetime. You will ask yourself, is it all a stroke of luck? Kismet? Whether he is fly fishing in Baja or hanging with friends in Malibu, Russell's charmed life and experiences make this book impossible to put down. Filled with recipes that are sure to delight home cooks and chefs, In Search of Duende gives the reader a chance to experience a journey of epic proportions and the delicious dish that corresponds with each fascinating story.
