Fresh Every Day: More Great Recipes from Foster's Marketby Sara Foster
Synopses & Reviews
Fresh. Flavorful. Unpretentious. Food this good doesnt need much of an introduction, and the inspired, down-home fare served at Fosters Market speaks for itself . . . and keeps the locals coming back day after day.
In Fresh Every Day, Sara Foster continues the tradition of soulful, seasonally inspired cooking, with more than two hundred of the New Southern recipes made famous at her eponymous markets. She adapts the skills and secrets of a successful professional kitchen for dishes and flavors that speak to the way we really cook at home, from slow-cooked stews and roasted chicken to burgers and salad meals born of leftovers. No elaborate techniques or esoteric ingredients here—just good home cooking elevated to company fare. Cornbread Panzanella with Avocado. Pan-Roasted Halibut with Cherry Tomatoes and Butternut Squash. Fall Off the Bone Baby Back Ribs. Molasses Sweet Potato Pie. “Take these recipes,” Sara invites, “take everything you know and feel about food, and have fun cooking.”
A cookbook for all seasons bursting with recipes easy enough for any day of the week, Fresh Every Day brings new meaning to comfort food.
"This follow-up to The Foster's Market Cookbook offers new simple, spruced-up recipes from the author's North Carolina gourmet takeout shops. In the tradition of Martha Stewart, with whom Foster coauthored the previous book and worked as a chef in the '80s, the effortlessly elegant food also reflects Foster's Southern background, with its prevalence of sweet potatoes, cornmeal and black-eyed peas. Flavorful marinades, fresh herbs and seasonal ingredients maximize taste for quick meals on the grill or hands-off roasts. Numerous salsas and sides enliven each plate, and alternatives 'for all seasons' to standards, like Twice-Baked Potatoes, Rice Pilaf, and Sauted Shrimp, provide year-round variety. Desserts are unfussy crowd-pleasers such as Mom's Apple Cobbler with Buttermilk Biscuit Topping, and Individual Chocolate Pudding Cakes. Sidebars on 'Basics' and 'Tricks of My Trade' share tips on techniques, shortcuts and gadgets. Busy cooks will learn to love leftovers when delicious Slow-Roasted Pork Shoulder is transformed into spicy Green Chili, and Skillet Cornbread becomes rustic Panzanella, an Italian bread salad. This is homey, American food with a kick, sure to appeal to cooks in search of easy ways to revitalize their repertoire. 160 color photos."
