QUALITY is never an accident; it is always the result of high intentions, sincere effort, intelligent directions, and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.

Thanks to the artful, inspiring book New Native Kitchen, it’s easy to see how we can incorporate indigenous foods into our kitchens.  

Robert Redford - Actor & Oscar-Winning Director

The cookbook creation was such an incredible process for us on many levels, and we're so grateful James and Culinary Book Creations made it as easy as they did. Their skills of taking our story and weaving it with our heart and soul into every page are worthy of all the awards they earn. Thank you James for your storytelling, your guidance, your attention to detail, your really fine sense of style, and your patience.

Wow, wow, wow! You speak my language better than I do, James! Seriously impressed with my cocktail book! My wife, who is a Capricorn and who would normally criticize anything and everything, read it and said “WOW, IT'S INCREDIBLE!” What more can I say? Thank you, my friend!
