Description: In Nathalie Dupree Cooks Everyday Meals from a Well-Stocked Pantry, the second in her trilogy of cookbooks that focus on the way we really live and eat today, Nathalie Dupree tackles one of the busy cook's thorniest problems: grocery shopping. Few cooks can afford the luxury of daily or even weekly shopping excursions.
But by stocking the pantry with a selection of well chosen nonperishables, frozen foods, and long-lasting fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and other staples it is possible to shop less often and still serve tempting, creative, and nutritionally sound meals every night of the week -- without resorting to packaged and convenience foods.
Building on an updated roster of fundamentals, Nathalie explains how additions from the international/gourmet pantry, herb and spice cabinet, vegetable and fruit bin, dairy shelf, or baker's pantry can transform basics into show-stoppers. She has assembled more than 150 recipes that follow this formula of basics plus, encompassing a wide range of appetizers, soups, salads, side dishes, main courses, breads, and desserts. Creamy Corn and Sweet Potato Chowder is warming on a wintry Sunday night, while Dried Cranberry Pilaf dresses up pork chops for the family. Elegant Seafood Provencal is sure to bring kudos from dinner guests, while Middle Eastern Ratatouille with Grilled Chicken Breast adds savory sophistication to any menu. And Currant Walnut Bread, Kahlua Brownie Triangles, and a host of other baked goods prove that the right basics can yield wonderful results.
Sidebars provide tips on freezing and storing foods, stocking up on nonperishable flavor enhancers, and even "pantry entertaining." Finally, Nathalie's list of "bomb shelter basics" (the key staples that ensure there will always be something to eat in the house) and valuable guidelines for making substitutions complete her plan for creating delicious, fresh-tasting meals while reducing the time spent on line at the supermarket.
