Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Chiles, garlic, bacon, dried mushrooms, lots of herbs and spices-these are some of the "big flavors" that show up in Fobel's 500 recipes: in Slash-and-Burn Chicken, Cajun Succotash, and other zesty, assertive dishes. Some call for long lists of ingredients, but the instructions are clear and concise, and variations suggest substitutions for harder-to-find ingredients. There are also variations for lower-fat versions, for more elaborate presentations, and for additions to turn a side dish into a meal. And dozens of boxes on ingredients are scattered throughout. A lively and, yes, flavor-packed collection, this book from the author of Beautiful Food (LJ 9/1/83) is highly recommended.
