Description: The Pitcher Mountain Inn Cookbook features the best dishes served at the nationally renowned Pitcher Mountain Inn -- recipes developed over many years of worldwide travel and testing by Dawn and Bill Matthews. The authors' cooking credo is that every ingredient should be as fresh, as perfect, and as simply prepared as possible. Herb-garnished garden vegetables and their own freshly baked breads and rolls set off the Matthewses' varied and original repertoire of delicious appetizers, soups, main courses, and desserts; there is also a special chapter covering brunch -- a specialty at the Pitcher Mountain Inn.
Wonderful food ideas abound, such as Sate Indonesian, Curried Cream of Broccoli Soup with Apples, Gingered Beef, Lemon Veal, and Shrimp in Whiskey Cream, to mention just a few. Top these off with delectable desserts like Queen of Sheba Cake, Poached Pears with Creme Anglaise, Lemon Cream Tarte, or glorious cookies. The brunch chapter features all sorts of tasty egg-and-cheese dishes, appetizers, breakfast pastries, and drinks.
Both Dawn and Bill Matthews have taught cooking, and their recipes reflect a culinary sophistication gained from years of cooking, teaching, and "traveling on our stomachs." Their directions are clear, straightforward, and uncomplicated; the same simple elegance found at the Pitcher Mountain Inn keynotes the Matthewses' book. Now you can create this elegance in your own dining room with The Pitcher Mountain Inn Cookbook!
