Good cooking takes a totally modern, inspirational look at fresh new ways to combine familiar flavors with much-loved classics. Jill Dupleix reinvents old-fashioned, basic recipes and gives them a faster, simpler approach, but keeps the flavors fresh, colors bright, and ingredients healthy. You don't need heavy cream, pastry or deep-frying--instead, look for great lasting extra-virgin olive oil, fresh cheeses, flat breads, and lots of grains, greens, fresh herbs, and spices. Lively features throughout the book highlight versatile ingredients, and new essential, basic recipes and techniques are revisited, reinvented, and clearly explained. Good cooking is an exciting, original cookbook that will supersede outdated traditional basic cookbooks on the kitchen shelf.
