Cookbook review: The Union Square Cafe Cookbook

The Union Square Cafe Cookbook  ($25.05 at Amazon) is a restaurant cookbook that's worth owning. Many aren't: they're great for general food porn/inspirational purposes (as in The French Laundry Cookbook) but aren't practical for home kitchens. Side note: I generally don't buy cookbooks without giving them a test run from the library first. If you haven't visited your local library in a while, go. Those books are free (as are the DVDs, CDs, and magazines), and hey, your tax dollars bought them. Go use them. The Union Square Cafe Cookbook is as unpretentious as its namesake; I've eaten there several times--I used to be roommates with their maitre d'--and I've used several of its recipes on a regular basis.
