Overview

The Art of Simple Food: Notes, Lessons, and Recipes from a Delicious Revolution by Alice Waters

Perhaps more responsible than anyone for the revolution in the way we eat, cook, and think about food, Alice Waters has “single-handedly chang[ed] the American palate” according to the New York Times. Her simple but inventive dishes focus on a passion for flavor and a reverence for locally produced, seasonal foods.

With an essential repertoire of timeless, approachable recipes chosen to enhance and showcase great ingredients, The Art of Simple Food is an indispensable resource for home cooks. Here you will find Alice’s philosophy on everything from stocking your kitchen, to mastering fundamentals and preparing delicious, seasonal inspired meals all year long. Always true to her philosophy that a perfect meal is one that’s balanced in texture, color, and flavor, Waters helps us embrace the seasons’ bounty and make the best choices when selecting ingredients. Fill your market basket with pristine produce, healthful grains, and responsibly raised meat, poultry, and seafood, then embark on a voyage of culinary rediscovery that reminds us that the most gratifying dish is often the least complex.

I love this cookbook. I've never been interested in cookbooks. I haven't enjoyed cooking nor did I come from a cooking family. This cookbook inspires me to cook and feed my family great food. Good cooking isn't hard, just some forethought for the pantry and lots of fresh food.

This book will remind you how simple it is to prepare a lovely meal at home for family and friends. If you've been eating store bought roasted chickens for years and have forgotten what a home roasted chicken tastes like, this book will give you the inspiration you need to get your culinary juices flowing again.
