New. 6" x 9 1/4" 0731805372. Unread, unmarked, lightly tanning text. A different kind of cookbook. It assumes that you want to make a meal quickly with whatever there is on hand in the refrigerator and the cupboard, and without being a slave to a recipe. A clever cook takes a recipe and adapts it successfully to the ingredients on hand. With inspiration, information and good old-fashioned common sense, almost any recipe can be made to suit your tastes and the ingredients available. Sharing inspirational ideas and the know-how and experience earned from years working with the world's leading chefs and cooking teachers, author Diane Holuigue shows you just how different foods work together and how they can take the fundamental idea of a recipe and change the ingredients to suit their tastes. You will learn: • which foods you should keep in the kitchen at all times • the properties of the humble egg • how to make great tasting creamed vegetable soups every time, or how to put two soups in one bowl for a dramatic effect • the secrets for making roast chicken that is never boring • how to get the best results with stuffings, marinades and sauces • how to make the perfect fries, perfect rice, perfect pasta...Diane Holuigue wants everyone to be a clever cook, using creativity and finding freedom and fun in the kitchen. She is based in Melbourne, Australia, where she ran the French Cooking School for 25 years. She has several books to her credit.; 248 pages.
