loyal fans, The Ravenous Pig: Seasons of Florida, by James and Julie Petrakis,

“This cookbook took us over a year to create as we moved through all the
seasons,” says Julie Petrakis, who is co-owner of The Ravenous Pig with her
husband James. “It’s a tribute to all the people who got us here. Without the
support of our family, our Ravenous team, and our guests this would never have
been possible. James and I are fortunate to do what we love every day, and now
we get to share how we do it with others.”
