Additional Details

Description: When first published in 1990, Simple Cuisine was immediately hailed as a classic. Jean-Georges Vongerichten pioneered a new and versatile cooking style that maximizes flavor and simplicity while minimizing preparation time and effort. He replaced the heavy, tediously prepared essentials of classic French cooking with basic building blocks -- vinaigrettes, flavored oils, extracted vegetable juices, and simmered vegetable broths -- to create a lighter cuisine. With these essentials prepared in advance, memorable dishes can be prepared with ease. 

More than 200 simple, original, and delicious dishes -- Sea Scallops with Garlic and Saffron Oil, Honey-Ginger Glazed Shallots, Lobster Poached in Lemon Grass Broth, Bouillon with Basil Dumplings -- demonstrate how to use these basic building blocks, all of which are prepared using healthful cooking techniques like steaming and stir-frying. 

For times when you need to plan a dinner party in a hurry, there are more than twenty 30-minute menus (plus seven of Jean-Georges's menus for special occasions). And when you're craving something a bit more indulgent, Jean-Georges serves up delectable sorbets, ice creams and sweets, and an entire chapter devoted to foie gras. 

Even if you're not a whisk-wielding whiz, the extraordinary recipes in Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Simple Cuisine will help you to cook like a four- star chef in your own home.
