Alison says: Those of you familiar with the fine cooking channel are aware of Rachel Khoo and her modern take on French cuisine. The delightful Little Paris Kitchen shows that it is possible to interpret cordon bleu cooking and make it simple to prepare. A great book to enjoy the flavors of Paris visually and gastronomically.
Alison says: Williams-Sonoma always manages to put out the cookbooks you never knew you needed but always use. Such is the case with Vegetable of the Day. It seems every article on food or health these days encourages us to eat more grains and vegetables - a food trend we should learn to live with and incorporate more meatless meals into our everyday menus. This book is unique in that it presents a recipe for each day of the year. Don't know what to make? Find today's date and view a seasonal, delicious recipe of the day. Practical, pretty, useful and healthy.
Alison says: On the heels of her success with Salad for Dinner and Blue Eggs and Yellow Tomatoes, Jeanne Kelley brings us the Kitchen Garden Cookbook - laden with wonderful ideas for seasonal recipes, along with helpful suggestions for planting your kitchen garden, using herbs, and how to use your produce to maximize its beauty and flavor. Local illustrator Salli Swindell shares her talents and graphics throughout this beautifully-done cookbook.
