Here’s a new family cookbook from Mark Peel of Campanile, one of our favorite restaurants in LA. It’s outlasted many of the flash-in-the-pan trendy spots and celebrity hang-outs that come and go in LA. With special nights like Monday night family style dinners and Thursday grilled cheese nights, it’s also one of the more family-friendly restaurants in a more adult setting. This new cookbook includes recipes for homey comfort food from Peel’s family dinner nights. Careful, though, these aren’t your “make a meal in 30 minutes” recipes. Here’s a recipe for Cold Cucumber Soup from the book.
