Oprah writes the introduction to this book. I liked this: ¿I definitely believe in the mystical, magical, healing power of a home-cooked meal.¿ The photographs in O, The Oprah Magazine Cookbook, are phenomenal. It¿s actually hard to look at the book without eating! They stand out as truly the most beautiful pictures of food that I¿ve ever seen. The book covers soup to nuts recipes, both fancy and simple. I want to make everything, thanks to those photographs! I really enjoyed the commentary from chefs and foodies alike. On the page with the commentary there is also a list of that writer¿s recipes found in the book. Nice touch. For example, ¿At the Table with Michael Nischan,¿ Nischan writes about his organic garden at his home in Connecticut and his commitment to feeding his five kids as healthfully as possible. The recipes span the globe. There are classic dishes, like Avgolemeno soup, which is a classic Greek chicken soup. There is an egg salad sandwich. What makes the egg salad special is the addition of fresh tarragon, cilantro, shallots, capers and mustard. Then there are creative dishes like crostini with wild mushroom and mozzarella , baby greens with asparagus and pistachios and many more fabulous sounding and looking recipes. I tried the crostini dish and it was absolutely delicious. At the end of the book is a section titled ¿What to Serve¿¿The following are listed: When you¿re really short on time When you want to keep it simple When you crave something healthy For the vegetarians you love If visuals motivate you to experiment with new dishes, buy this book immediately! From the author of the award winning book, Harmonious Environment: Beautify, detoxify & Energize Your Life, Your Home & Your Planet.
