Enjoy the finest flavors that each season has to offer. "Seasons: A Year of Great Tastes" blends traditional home-cooking with inspirational ideas that stress that simple, fresh ingredients--picked when ripe and naturally in season--constitute the essence of good cooking.
"This beautifully photographed cookbook emphasizes fresh, seasonal cooking, separating recipes into chapters dedicated to the bounty of spring, summer, fall and winter. Spring's recipes include a deliciously creamy Asparagus Risotto and a decadent Buttery Roast Lamb with New Potatoes which requires almost no preparation time but tastes like it emerged from a restaurant kitchen. Summer is represented with such happy treats as Gazpacho, Crab Cake Salad and Orange-Flower Panna Cotta. Fall and winter's recipes are predictably heavier, but no less appealing; tasty offerings like Venison Daube and Honey-Roasted Ham call to mind changing leaves, dropping temperatures and heartier appetites. The editors of this volume pay attention to vegetarian cooking - every chapter offers tempting meatless options - and write in the sort of clear, careful prose that makes even complicated recipes seem effortless. Finally, there's a wide selection of international recipes: Moussaka is a Greek spring treat, while Italy welcomes fall with Crepes Al Funghi. But, really, recipes this enticing deserve to be savored all year round. " Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
