The New Brooklyn Cookbook pays homage to the city’s greatness by pulling recipes from 31 different restaurants within its borders; restaurants that made Brooklyn a world-class culinary city. It traverses the widely-varied cultural and ethnic foods of the many peoples that call Brooklyn home, so don’t expect some kind of culinary uniformity as you read through.
