Product Details


“Andrew Barton’s voice is warm and his food is beautiful. The sense of place—the ambiance—will draw you in and make you feel freshly appreciative of simple, everyday possibilities. In a world overflowing with cookbooks, this quiet gem stands out.”
Mollie Katzen, author of the Moosewood Cookbook

I’ll Have What She’s Having

“With The Myrtlewood Cookbook, Andrew Barton has created an arresting collection of recipes gathered from Secret Restaurant Portland. Accompanied by lush photography, his instructions are thoughtful, meticulous, and spiced with personal guidance; I felt as if I was cooking in the kitchen with a highly skilled, yet patient friend.”
Elliott Bay Book Company, Fall Booknotes

“This cookbook is unabashedly PNW to its core, from the cutting boards carved from native Myrtlewood trees to the mushrooms that pop up in soup, risotto, and pizza. Unlike most cookbooks, Barton’s recipes read more like an actual book; each dish spans multiple pages with paragraphs in the place of ordered steps. Barton’s conversational tone is certainly homey, as is the food itself.”
Seattle Met

‘The recipes in the book are flavorful, easy-to-prepare, and attractive to serve.”

“Barton writes as if he were standing in the kitchen with you, offering cooking tips within the recipes.”
The Register-Guard

“…devoted to Northwest ingredients”
Willamette Week

“Helps readers to discover new ways to prep vegetable-based dishes.”
—Heirloom Gardener
