Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Millions of cooks the world over count on James McNair for delicious, reliable recipes. Now this best-selling author has collected his all-time favorites (updated, retested, and rewritten for today's busy and more health-conscious cook) in one definitive volume. With over 350 recipes, James McNair's Favorites offers abundant inspiration for entertaining as well as everyday good eating. Join McNair on a culinary journey that begins with scrumptious breakfasts, goes around the world for hot and hearty main dishes (plus vegetables, breads, and zippy condiments), and finishes delectably with a legion of sweets. In addition to terrific recipes, readers get the benefit of McNair's time-tested tips on such topics as making pasta, cooking grains of all types, and forming the perfect pie crust. Filled with innovative dishes and a colorful portfolio of McNair's award-winning food photography, James McNair's Favorites is destined to become a basic text for every 21st-century kitchen.
