This book grew out of a series of articles that started with ``Fifty Ways To Love Your Liver.'' Schloss, a writer and chef, and Bookman, former food editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer , went on to develop recipes for ``Fifty Ways To Beat the Heat,'' `` . . . To Survive a Turkey,'' and more. Recipe instructions are bare bones, none longer than a paragraph, but the recipes themselves range from basic to elaborate and sophisticated (techniques are covered in an appendix). The simpler chapters (pizza toppings, muffins) probably work best as a source for ideas for the busy cook, but the whole book is fun for browsing, and the gimmick is one that is sure to attract readers. Recommended for most collections. HomeStyle Bks. main selection; Quality Paperbacks alternate.
Barbara Jacobs
One of the more creative and versatile cookbooks to emerge in recent memory, combining the chef-ery and writing skills of two Philadelphians. Each one of the 50 chapters tackles 50 ways to do "something" in the kitchen (or on the grill), whether it's topping a pizza, fighting fat, inducing kids to eat more nutritionally, or developing variations for all-too-familiar entrees like chili, meatloaf, and hamburger. The writing is tart and spicy and the 2,500 recipes are short and sweet, presented in paragraph form, minus the traditional list of ingredients. Neither completely nouvelle nor old hat, the suggestions range from walnut butter and fig sandwiches and peppered brie and scallops pizza to three-meat deli hoagie and rolled-up lasagna. Appended are 50 basic preparations, 50 basic techniques, and 50 menus.
