In" Eat This Book," Tyler draws inspiration from kitchens around the world to enliven America's favorite foods in more than 150 new real kitchen recipes for everyday occasions. Now you can wake up tired weeknight chicken with the zing of North African spices. Turn Sunday's same old spaghetti dinner into an authentic Italian abbondanza with Pappardelle Bolognese and Veal Saltimbocca alla Romana. Hit a home run on game day with Fresh Tortilla Chips, Guacamole, and Farmstand Salsa. Each recipe zeroes in on the bright notes of fresh, global fare and a handful of readily available ingredients that engage the senses and spark the palate, and all are as easy to prepare as they are flavorful. From the simple pleasures of midnight fridge raids to the exotic and sophisticated, "Eat This Book" satisfies an array of hunger pangs in chapters that truly speak to the way we eat today: "Eating" introduces pantry basics with a twist, like Lemon-Caper Mayonnaise and Ginger-Soy Vinaigrette; "Devouring" presents snacks and cocktail bites such as Toasted Almonds in Chile Oil and Sauteed Feta Cheese; "Noshing" offers crowd-pleasing fare for impromptu gatherings like Cold Sesame Noodles and Grilled Pizza with Mozzarella di Bufala; "Consuming" lays out easy dishes for weeknight suppers, including Roasted Chicken Stuffed with Lemon and Herbs and Pan-Seared Tuna with Avocado; "Tasting" harvests ideas from the summer garden such as Spanish Gazpacho and Roasted Corn with Parmesan and Cayenne; "Savoring" serves up hot pots for cold nights, like Braised Brisket and Buttery Turnips; and "Licking" the plate clean showcases irresistible desserts, including Peach and Blueberry Crostata and Chocolate Tart. Packed with the excitement of a culinary wanderlust fulfilled and all the comforts of coming home again, " Eat This Book" proves there's really no reason to eat out when the food from your own kitchen can be so delicious.Read Less
Beautiful photography, clear instructions and every recipe I've tried(8) has turned out wonderfully well. Most of these recipes have easily accessible ingredients but used in interesting combinations(ie. Field Mushrooms Roasted with Sausage and Raisins, YUM!). I like that I can produce a healthy, sumptuous meal that looks elegant but doesn't take a degree in Rocket Science to produce.
