This cookbook has a copyright of 1996. I do not know where I got this cookbook. I have never cooked from this before.
I was a big fan of Caprials show on PBS years ago and I'm sure I bought this cookbook because of that.
Standard chapters though there were chapters for Seasonal Fruit Deserts and Morning Food. There was a chapter on Basics (which includes smoking a chicken along with roasting garlic, making quick puff pastry and sauces). There was a page on British terms and a conversion chart and a glossary.
There are only a few photographs and, what I hate that some cookbooks do, the photographs are interspersed in the book no where near the recipes they represent. At the start of each recipe there is a paragraph that gives tips or other information for the recipe. Recipes seem pretty straightforward and there don't seem to be any out there ingredients.
Lot of great sounding recipes to try. My list of stuff to try is about a mile long: Crab Bruschetta, Goat Cheese Dumplings, Pan-Fried Ravioli with Roasted Red Pepper Pesto, Grilled Flank Steak with Hot Pepper Paste, Corn Muffins, Breakfast Fruit Crisps, Pecan Coffeecake, Spiced Pecan French Toast, Chicken Pot Pie with Cheese Crust, Smoke Chicken Salad, Ancho Barbecued Chicken Wings, Lacy Cafe Florentines, Almond Plum Strudel, Grilled Banana Compote, Mini Chocolate Cakes with White Chocolate Lava, Riesling Poached Pears, Tuna with Five-Spice Soy Glaze, Phyllo Purses Stuffed wth Raspberries and Marscapone, Lamb Brochettes with Cucumber Garlic Sauce, Basil Breakfast Potatoes, Corn Salad with South Western Dressing, Simple Butter Sauce, Fennel Corn Chowder, Caramelized Onion Soup, Osso Buco with Lemon and Olives, Onion Gratin, Thyme Marinated Grilled Asparagus.
Definitely looking forward to trying a recipe from this cookbook.
