"Our deepest gratitude to Amy Vogler, who tested every recipe in this book. Her care, close reading, and writing made her a true partner in this book, not to mention the countless hours discussing pretty much everything."

Zachary Golper and Peter Kaminsky


“… for making sense of my recipes, for the countless hours she spent testing and writing them, and for being the precise (but compassionate) brain that I lack.

“… for driving the bus and keeping us on our toes and on track. Her work, from overall conception of the book and its parts to her acute attention to detail in the recipes, is invaluable.”
