On many occasions you can find recipes that appear to be authentic representations of that served in their original country, yet upon closer inspection they are either a shadow of their real-life versions or they would be totally unknown of back home.

This is my favorite cookbook. It's super specific, great breakdowns, well written recipes. I love it. It's just the best. It's all about chicken in various forms. Whole Chicken, quarters, pieces, entrees, side dishes, soups, everything. It's comprehensive. And, I just can't express how important a well worded recipe is.
