Description: Taste Pure and Simple -- it's about good food, good flavors, the best of eating, and the best of health.
Chef Michel Nischan, board member of Chef's Collaborative and well-known proponent of organic well-being, knows that eating well is about balance. And in Taste Pure and Simple, he proves that robust meals can be healthful and taste good, too.
In these recipes, developed both for his family and for his restaurant, he's found new and creative ways to use vegetable juices, olive oil, and other healthful alternatives to dairy products. In addition to the freshest seasonal fruits and vegetables, lean meats and fish are also on the menu -- that's part of the balance -- but the dishes really shine when Michel's innovative techniques and use of ingredients are part of the equation.
Who knew that sweet potatoes make a richly flavored sauce that's fabulous drizzled over coriander-seasoned duck? Or that smooth and creamy white bean dip spread on chunks of crusty bread could make you forget about butter? And when you eat this well for dinner, you're free to indulge in a little dessert. Small hazelnut cakes made without flour boast delectable chocolate centers -- a deliciously decadent ending to any meal.
Taste -- it's pure and simple.
