Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this first cookbook, which evolved from the veteran food writer's Signature magazine column of the same name, Fabricant offers 185 enticing recipes for intimate and grand occasions, warm and cool weather, a 700-calorie dinner and one that can be prepared in less than an hour. The 35 comprehensive and comprehensible menus are creatively eclectic: American, Italian, Alsatian, Belgian, Portuguese, Mexican, Greek, Indian. More than 90 lovely photographs in vibrant colors accompany an immensely readable text that stresses balance, variety, advance planning and flexibility. Fabricant makes specific wine recommendations for each menu, sheds light on the history and reputation of her selections and lucidly demystifies when to serve white or red, light or robust vintages, when to let wine breathe, how much wine to estimate per person, etc. BOMC dividend selection; Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book Club bonus selection. (October)
