What is Sean Brock’s favorite cookbook?
The Unrivaled Cookbook is one that I’ve been chasing. I found a copy of it and gave it away to a person that I really admire — they actually introduced me to it and had been looking for it for years. But it’s really the first kind of book about Southern cooking. You really see the first documented recipe for boiled peanuts, and you start to see the origins and the roots of all of these dishes. There are only a handful of these books in existence — but you can get it. You can get it on Google Books, and that’s where I read it, but I want the first edition.
