The Art of Simple Food
One of my favorite chefs lately is Alice Waters - she's celebrates the sustainable food movement and is an advocate of farmer's markets. Needless to say, I've become a fan of her recent tome, "The Art of Simple Food." I'm not a book reviewer nor a professional chef but I like it's format and enjoy reading her guidelines about food. And it's one of the few cookbooks I like that doesn't have pictures (Gourmet Garage and Dean & Deluca's cookbooks are a few others). Anyway, I'll be featuring some photos of recent recipes I tested in the next few days. It's amazing how a few well-chosen ingredients can make a tasty dish.
