Book Description

In this sweet, petite collection of essays and recipes, Alice Waters showcases the simple building-block ingredients she uses to create gratifying, impromptu meals all year long.

In her most intimate and compelling cookbook yet, Alice invites readers to step not into the kitchen at Chez Panisse, but into her own, sharing how she shops, stores, and prepares the pantry staples and preserves that form the core of her daily meals.  Ranging from essentials like homemade chicken stock, red wine vinegar, and tomato sauce to the unique artisanal provisions that embody Alice’s unadorned yet delightful cooking style, she shows how she injects even simple meals with nuanced flavor and seasonal touches year-round.  From fresh cheeses to quick pickles to sweets and spirits, these often-used ingredients are, as she explains, the key to kitchen spontaneity when combined with simple grains, vegetables, and other staple items.  With charming pen-and-ink illustrations by her daughter, Fanny and Alice’s warm, inviting tone, the latest book from our most influential proponent of simple, organic cooking ensures a gracious, healthy meal is always within reach.

No matter if you are a novice in the kitchen or if you have been cooking for years, you will love this book. It is so easy to follow the directions.The recipes are easy to learn and will satisfy even picky eaters. You can easily find the ingredients in your garden.
The kindle edition of this book is almost impossible to use. The formatting leaves it choppy and full of errors. If you are trying to use it when you are cooking you will find that it gets impossible, the type is too small and when you try to enlarge it just gets blurry.
In a time when everyone is overwhelmed with the decisions about food, it is nice to find a cookbook that allows you to use your own ingredients to make things for your pantry. When you make it yourself you know for certain what is going into it. There are very little preservatives if any. There are no GMOs. The food tastes good because it is fresh. This is a book that would make a perfect wedding gift because it has easy to follow directions. The author's explanations make sense. You learn techniques as well that you can apply to other recipes. The pictures are beautiful.They are very detailed.You will use this book a lot because it gives you such delicious recipes that the whole family will love. The book is laid out perfectly to be easy to navigate and find favorite recipes. Even the most experienced cooks will love to use this book. It is inspirational for many more dishes. Go for the hard edition rather than the kindle edition because it is a lot more home chef-friendly.
