I have not read the whole book-obviously, I want a rainy day and some tea, or a snowy one with some coffee, so I can stay in bed and get acquainted with the people, places, history, food and pictures!

This wonderful book, The 406 Table, took me back to what it means to grow up on a farm in Montana. It evoked so many nostalgic memories of places and heartwarming family mealtimes. The spectacular pictures and stories are so inspiring and impressive. I truly enjoyed the amazing variety of experiences waiting with every turn of the page. I am so excited to try the recipes, and share this beautifully written resource with my family and friends!

You want to go have a date with it. You want to go and sit with it and enjoy it page by page. This book is timeless. There is no shelf-life on this book. Every page is as good as the last one, never a disappointment. It’s delicious and so creative!
