Praise

“Tobacco panna cotta? Gorgeous moody photos? This book flirts with the dark side and goes deep into the one taste often ignored.”
—TheKitchn.com

“McLagan’s book strikes the perfect balance between essayistic exploration, lush photography and recipes.”
New York Times Book Review

“Jennifer McLagan serves as an enthusiastic evangelist and expert guide by demystifying the dark and dangerous flavors of all things bitter and inspiring readers to explore and embrace this often unappreciated taste—on the plate and in the glass.” 
—Brad Thomas Parsons, author of Bitters: A Spirited History of a Classic Cure-All

“McLagan’s book strikes the perfect balance between essayistic exploration, lush photography and recipes.”
New York Times Book Review
 
“Take a bow, Jennifer McLagan. With your newest book, Bitter, you’ve given foodists the chance to chew on a topic made for adults.”
—Washington Post
 
“McLagan has found a strong theme in Bitter. In this latest cookbook, McLagan’s recipes seem to say: this is exactly what I mean when I say ‘bitter.’ You scan them, with their slightly conservative edginess, and immediately you want to taste. . . . The recipes I tried were excellent. McLagan writes clearly and well, with the voice of a practiced cook.”
—Art of Eating
 
“In her new cookbook, McLagan delves into this once underappreciated taste. The James Beard Award-winning author celebrates the flavor’s revival in a tome packed with awesome recipes.”
—Good Housekeeping
