We’re delighted to offer copies of this book signed by Alex Guarnaschelli.
This is a practical family cookbook, written with imagination by a well-known, classically trained chef and her teenage daughter, an instinctual cook. The ingredients and flavor-profiles are contemporary, ranging from simple comfort foods to the occasional ambitious flourish.
Alex Guarnaschelli, the chef of NYC’s Butter and a popular Food Network host, is herself the daughter of two intrepid cooks, both Italian-American; her mother Maria edited a host of significant cookbooks, from Classic Indian Cooking to The Zuni Cafe Cookbook to The Food Lab. When it comes to recipe clarity, it’s easy to detect careful attention to detail here.
Among the many appealing recipes are:
- Cheddar biscuits with chili-crunch butter
- Smoked salmon tartine with scallion cream cheese
- Mustardy chicken thighs
- Braised Savoy cabbage with tomato and spices
- Strawberry skillet crisp
Accessible for young cooks. Useful and imaginative for weeknight meals.
Hardcover. Color photographs throughout.
