Description: Michael SchlowIt's About Time is a unique and versatile cookbook that will be used again and again for its inspirational stories, informative sidebars, helpful tricks, and, most of all, for its never-fail recipes that are easy to follow and always delicious. It's About Time contains more than 150 recipes that range broadly from 50-minute meals and summer barbeques to elegant entertaining.
It's About Time honors the traditions and social importance of food while recognizing that in today's world time is the most essential ingredient when it comes to determining what and how we cook and eat. "Most of us would like to eat well, but feel we just don't have enough time," Michael Schlow writes in his introduction. "This book sets out not only to teach you how to cook and eat well when you're on the go, it also works in reverse for when your soul is crying out for a little bit of culinary therapy I can't think of a better way to unwind than by spending a couple of hours in the kitchen with a glass of wine, some music on the stereo, and something delicious simmering on the stove. I know it's impossible to dedicate the same amount of time, every single day, to the meal period. I'm guessing you need some variety, you need some flexibility, and of course you need me to understand that you are busy most (but not all) of the time. . . . It's my hope that you'll open this cookbook over and over again, and nothing would please me more than to see it end up dog-eared and splattered with sauce stains."
