From Saveur Magazine comes this beautiful book of comfort food recipes from America and around the world. It's filled with wonderful photos of both the food and the people and places that represent the cuisine. Included are recipes for snacks, appetizers, salads, soups, stews, eggs, pastas and noodles, fish and shellfish, poultry, meats, vegetables and side dishes, baked goods and desserts, and drinks. These are not quick and cheap dishes but neither are they difficult and most of the ingredients can be found at larger grocery stores, especially those with ethnic food sections. The emphasis is on cooking from scratch using fresh ingredients. I decided to try something different than a main dish and made the zucchini fritters that included romano cheese and a dash of cayenne pepper in the list of ingredients. My family liked them well enough for me to make them again, but requested less onion in the next batch. Other recipes that looked appealing were the chive and cheddar biscuits, a homemade German chocolate cake, eggs benedict, and lemony roast chicken, along with several pasta dishes. This is a beautiful and substantial cookbook that has a coffee table book feel to it. It would be a great gift for anyone who loves to cook. I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
