Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Any day of the year can be the right time to make a favorite, warm-the-cockles-of-your-heart dish. But the winter season, inclement weather or not, is the time when our taste buds often crave the hearty and homey. A one-source compendium of such coziness is the softcover "Fine Cooking Comfort Food "(The Taunton Press, $19.95), from the editors of "Fine Cooking "magazine. Liberally scattered color photographs call attention to recipes from the Soups and Chowders section to Desserts. The book is geared for home cooks looking for flavor variations on old-fashioned favorites such as Rustic Bean and Farro Soup or something different, like Lamb Tagine With Honey, Prunes, Onions & Toasted Almonds, or Transylvanian Goulash. Although this isn't a "how-to-cook" book, there are the added "Fine Cooking "series' cooking tips (Making the Perfect Omelet) and interesting ingredient asides. —The Los Angeles Times

This is the kind of book you lazily skim through, pausing on things that make your mouth water like mashed sweet potatoes with mango chutney, or things you'd just like to try, like an Italian souffle called a cauliflower sformato. The book contains lots of comfort casseroles and one-pot meals, and selections run the gamut from classic chicken pot pie to slow cooker osso buco and Brazilian chicken and shrimp stew. With spring parsnips now available, the parsnip risotto with pancetta and sage would be a good choice. The breakfast and brunch items alone will make you want to run to the kitchen. Warm maple and cinnamon bread pudding? Baked cheddar grits with bacon? Remind me to pull this book out next winter, when frost is on the window pane and hibernation is the only plan for the day. -Meredith Goad, Portland Press Herald (ME)
