Has anyone read 'A Food Lovers's Guide to New Jersey?'

I found out about this book today, A Food Lover's Guide to New Jersey, by Peter Genovese. I was wondering if anyone has read it. Would it be worth someone interested in South Jersey local foods to pick up?

I'm still searching for sources to draw from for this blog, and if this book is worth it, I'll pick it up. Thought I'd ask for opinions first, though.

On another note, my family and I drove to Cream Ridge Winery yesterday for their anniversary celebration. Pictures and my thoughts will be up tomorrow.

We own it. It's worth having a copy. Love Pete Genovese and the Munchmobile. - John

Yes, we got it as a gift. It's good for info and ideas, but be warned-it's HIGHLY subjective. I have a few beefs with his "best of"s..but since he covers ALL of NJ, I have to cut him a break!:)-Lisa

Sounds like a good book; I've put it on my wish list; will let you know if I get it. Thanks for the info on Cream Ridge. A restaurateur that I know once served this brand.

I did pick up the book. I did my first speaking engagement on food and the environment the other day and it went well. I was feeling pretty good when I got done and I was passing by a bookstore so I popped in and rewarded myself with a new book.

There's some interesting stuff in it. I'll do a review of the book in the upcoming weeks.
