Description: In every region of the country, from the simplest home kitchen to the trendiest restaurant, people have fallen in love again with one-dish meals. This earthy, rustic fare suggests all the pleasure and comfort of generations of robust home cooking. In her new book, Mara Reid Rogers offers us some of the best and least-known dishes, adapted for contemporary tastes and concerns, of the traditional cooking of many peoples and places.
The glory of this food has always been its depth and richness of flavor, unequalled by any other form of cookery. Hearty casseroles and pot pies, rustic soups and stews, pasta, puddings and pilaus make these the most beguiling of main-dish meals. And the author has made sure to address the needs of today's frenetically busy cook: Microwave instructions are given wherever feasible, along with information on advance preparation, freezing, reheating, garnishing, and serving.
In keeping with the immense variety of culinary traditions here offered, (not to mention our own present-day nutritional concerns), Ms. Rogers includes substantial chapters on seafood, poultry, pasta, grains and beans, and main-dish salads.
These recipes, whether prepared for family or friends, for the most casual or the most elegant of occasions, represent the inventiveness and vitality of home cooking at its best.
