Christopher KimballYes, these recipes are simple, very simple, and that is the charm of this book. Printed on a nice, heavy matte paper in two colors (black type, red recipe titles), it feels approachable and straightforward. How about Romano Beans with Marjoram, Moroccan Carrot Salad, Spaghettini with Oil and Garlic, and Grilled Chicken Breast? This is not restaurant food, or at least, not fancy New York-style menu items. Of course, the magic is in the ingredients and the experience of the cook, but I like this book since I love everyday food. The writing is uncomplicated with an emphasis on kitchen technique and just the right number of asides regarding sustainability. It's a cookbook in the grand tradition of American cookery. Thank you, Alice.
