Overview

Perfect for family dinners, potluck suppers, and parties, casseroles are the ultimate comfort food—deeply satisfying, amazingly versatile, and blissfully easyto prepare. Now renowned food scholar and award-winning cookbook author Clifford A. Wright has written the definitive casserole cookbook—a peerless collection of nearly 250 great casserole recipes from around the world.

Wright got hooked on his mom's lasagna as a child, and his experiences feeding his own kids and researching the foods of the Mediterranean helped him explore the world of casserole possibilities. Now, with his book, you too can embark on a journey of casserole discovery. You'll find deliciously updated versions of all-American classics such as Tuna Noodle Casserole and Chicken Divan—without canned soup! You can sample a wide range of soul-satisfying Italian-Americanclassics, like Stuffed Shells and Baked Rigatoni with Sausages, as well as famous international casseroles such as Moussaka and Cassoulet. There are lots of healthy casserole options to serve as main dishes or sides—from a Casserole of New England Spring Vegetables to little-known (but tasty) Old World specialties such as France's Pounti—and you'll find a whole chapter of vegetarian casserole choices.

For Wright, a casserole is any one-dish recipe baked in the oven, so he includes not only main dishes and sides, but breakfast and dessert casseroles as well. You can kick off your weekends with crowd-pleasing choices such as Stuffed French Toast Casserole or Egg and Bacon Strata. And to top off a meal, what could be better than a Pear Crisp, an Apple Pandowdy, or a Wild Strawberry and Cream CheeseCrêpe Casserole with Vanilla Sauce?

Wright has formulated the recipes with today's cooks in mind, using easy-to-find fresh ingredients and clear, simple steps.Whether you're looking for a low-stress family supper, an elegant company main dish, a make-ahead brunch, or a potluck crowd-pleaser, his book is brimming with possibilities. Complete with informative cook's notes and lots of leftover suggestions, Bake until Bubbly is truly the ultimate casserole cookbook.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Wright, author of numerous cookbooks on the cuisines of the Mediterranean as well as Real Stew, here turns to another enduring comfort food. He presents 250 recipes for casseroles of all types, including both breakfast and dessert dishes (think crisps and crumbles). The recipes come from around the world and all across the United States. Along with beloved classics, some in updated, fresher versions, there are unusual recipes that will be unfamiliar to many readers. The headnotes provide history and context, and most of them offer serving suggestions; there are also ideas for leftovers (if there are any!). With its informative, readable text and tasty recipes, this is highly recommended. (Library Journal, February 15, 2008)

"a great resource for most any occasion.... Few dishes say 'comfort food' more than the cheese-and-egg-laden casseroles that are favored in small towns in heartland American, but Wright (Real Stew) shows that casseroles are part of a long international tradition that continues as strongly today in the Middle East as in the Midwest." (Publishers Weekly, November 19, 2007)
