Description: The most important trend in eating and cooking today is toward lighter, fresher, more imaginative meals. The Crabtree & Evelyn Cookbook responds to this movement by offering menus, recipes, and ideas for entertaining for all occasions when a light but delicious and satisfying meal is in order -- a simple breakfast, a cozy lunch, afternoon tea in the garden, an impromptu picnic, a late-night supper.
The Crabtree & Evelyn Cookbook offers 200 original recipes that are in the spirit of Crabtree & Evelyn condiments and prepared foods -- nostalgic yet new, carefully and lovingly created with the freshest of ingredients. Emphasizing simple but sophisticated meals, the book is accessible to novice as well as experienced cooks. Recipes highlight prepared condiments, such as hazelnut oil, raspberry vinegar, and flavored mustards.
The book is divided into chapters on Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Picnics, Tea, Cocktails, Dinner, and Supper. Each chapter features four or five seasonal menus ranging from a breakfast of strawberries with strawberry vinegar, potato pancakes, and home-smoked trout with rosemary, to a dinner of marinated tuna steaks with tomato-basil sauce, baby squash with nasturtium butter, and peach lattice pie. Sidebars throughout suggest a variety of ingredient alternatives, recipe shortcuts, and other bits of useful information.
This elegant book is illustrated throughout with the rich, detailed, and enchanting artwork for which Crabtree & Evelyn has become famous. In addition to these illustrations, more than 40 full-color photographs have been taken by Christopher Baker especially for this book.
