Its creator, Jessica Merchant, also a contributor to Ree Drummon's Tasty Kitchen, and Relish magazine, has released her debut cookbook, Seriously Delish: 150 Recipes for People Who Totally Love Food.

Featuring essays, photographs and art from Curtis Sittenfeld, Katie Laur, David Falk, Over the Rhine, Rebecca Morgan Frank, and many more, The Cincinnati Anthology tells the story of our city and why we're proud to call it home.
