Description: What happens when a four-star chef and a culinary minimalist decide to join forces to create something different? They invent a new style that adapts to every occasion and every level of cooking expertise. Simple to Spectacular introduces a unique concept developed by one of the worlds top chefs, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Mark Bittman, author of How to Cook Everything and the New York Times hugely popular column "The Minimalist." Ever since their award-winning collaboration on Jean-Georges Cookjng at Home with a Four-Star Chef, the acclaimed duo has been cooking up a repertoire of new duties that can be prepared in any of five progressively sophisticated ways.
Simple to Spectacular features a total of 250 recipes in 50 groups. Each group begins with a simple, elegant recipe -- a few ingredients combined for maximum effect -- followed by fully detailed, increasingly elaborate variations. For example, a recipe for Grilled Shrimp with Thyme and Lemon leads to Grilled Shrimp and Zucchini on Rosemary Skewers, Grilled Shrimp with Apple Ketchup. Thai-style Grilled Shrimp on Lemongrass Skewers, and Grilled Shrimp Balls with Cucumber and Yogurt.
Every aspect of the meal is covered, from superb soups and salads to unforgettable side dishes, entrees, and desserts. In Simple to Spectacular, everything -- from the basics to innovations by a four-star chef -- is tailored for a quick Tuesday night dinner or an elegant weekend parry. And in the now-classic Vongerichten, Bittman style, all of the recipes can be made in one kitchen of any home cook. With 80 full-color photographs giving a mouthwatering view of the Simple-to-Spectacular transformations, readers and cooks will eagerly explore the possibilities.
