Sasquatch Books to Publish Toro Bravo Team’s Newest Cookbook
Wednesday, July 22, 2015
The deal was made official earlier this month between Sasquatch Books and the Toro Bravo team’s agent Kimberly Witherspoon, who also represents Anthony Bourdain, Gabrielle Hamilton, and David Chang.
The Toro Bravo team is made up of author Liz Crain (Food Lover’s Guide to Portland), Chef John Gorham (Toro Bravo, Tasty n’ Sons, Tasty n Alder), and photographer David Reamer (Le Pigeon, Pure Beef). The team is highly regarded within the local culinary -- and writing community.
The restaurant's first cookbook published in 2013, Toro Bravo, (named after itself) recieved rave reviews from local and national publications including BuzzFeed, Oregon Public Broadcasting's 'Think Out Loud,' and Food52.
"Toro Bravo is so much more than a cookbook (though it does a damn fine job of being just that). It's a passionate story of how one great chef found his way by following his heart and trusting his gut. It's a moving memoir and a gastronomic map. It's a practical guide and a culinary cri de coeur. It's the book I'm going to press into everyone's hands,” said Wild author Cheryl Strayed.
Several years later, the team is now ready to dish up a compilation of 100 brunch and dinner recipes from Portland restaurants Tasty n Sons and Tasty n Alder. Expect the upcoming book to wet your appetite.
