Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the past twenty years, Roy Finamore has shaped America's most popular cookbooks, publishing such influential authors as Martha Stewart, Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa), and Lee Bailey and working alongside chefs and other food authorities to help them streamline their recipes. Now, in Tasty, he shows you how to make the most of your time and have fun in the kitchen.

Tasty proves that a meal doesn't need to be showoffy to be uncommonly good. When you serve food from this book, your family and friends will sit up and take notice, and you'll be relaxed and smiling when you sit down at the table. Among the simple but exceptional dishes in Tasty:

  • Buttermilk Pancakes with Hazelnut Butter: breakfast with a minimum of effort; unbelievably light and fluffy.
  • Sicilian Spinach Pie: perfect for a lunch or picnic, with the easiest pastry you've ever made.
  • Fresh Pea Soup: with three common ingredients, it's ready in five minutes.
  • Chicken Milanese: Crisp chicken and tart salad — the kind of food you crave when it's hot out.
  • Pork Roast with Fruit Stuffing: a fine company dish or Sunday supper.
  • Chinois Noodles: Asian-inspired and equally good warm or cold.
  • Chocolate Whipped Cream Cake: Whip cream, add eggs and a few dry ingredients, and you've got cake!

As Roy says in his introduction, "Good simple food is meant to be shared and enjoyed. Cook often."

Review:

"Flipping through Finamore's book, a reader might get the idea that the food the longtime cookbook editor offers is fine, just fine — but that's about it. Cook one of the dishes, though, and the assessment goes from fine to fantastic. The 200 recipes are for the type of fare that's become familiar to many modern home cooks: American cuisine with Italian and French accents, using fresh ingredients and simple preparations. The foods may be recognizable, but they're rarely tired: who, for instance, could argue with the quick and juicy braise that is Pork Chops with Fennel and Tomato, served over Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes, or Chicken Milanese hidden under a tart arugula salad? The author, who has molded texts written by such cookbook legends as Martha Stewart, Ina Garten and Lee Bailey, has a carefree approach to cooking, urging readers to continually taste what they're making and correct seasonings and cooking times, and most of all, not to stress. With weekday and weekend dinner suggestions as well as ideas for breakfasts, lunches, 'nibbles,' salads and desserts, this cookbook is destined for frequent use. Photos." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

"Tasty" offers ample testimony to the idea that a meal doesn't need to be a showoff event to be uncommonly good. The 200 deftly easy, unpretentious recipes show the influence of French and Italian traditions and are accompanied by many tips and techniques from Finamore's abundant experience in the kitchen.
