Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer are #33 on Gourmet's List of 50 Women Game Changers. Gourmet calls them food royalty. Hirsheimer co-founded Saveur and Hamilton ran the test kitchen at Saveur. Mary of One Perfect Bite has organized a group of bloggers to cook and post their way through the list.
|Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer are also known for their collection of Canal House Cookbooks. I must admit I knew nothing about these two women until I learned of Gourmet's 50 Women Game Changer. I chose to make a dish from their most recent book, Volume No 7 because as soon as I opened the book I was hooked. I first read a review of the book on Amazon and knew I needed to get my hands on this book. It's a beautiful book with thick paper, gorgeous photos and it reads like a novel...just like the reviewer said.|
|I chose the recipe that I did because of the way they described their very special bottle of acet balsamico tradizionale. My bottle does not nearly have the price tag, but it is quite good.|
