The follow-up to the bestselling, International Association of Culinary Professionals Award-winning Twelve Recipes, A Recipe for Cooking provides next-level, home-cook-friendly recipes for occasions large and small. Here you'll find everything you need to cook for big get-togethers, holiday feasts, family occasions, and special dinners for two. Organized by courses, this celebratory book helps cooks plan their meals from first bite to last-how a meal should start, what should be the main attraction, what should be served alongside, and how to choose the perfect finish. A Recipe for Cooking offers a range of delicious, easy-to-master fare, including a Savory Flaky Tart with Onions, Olives, and Anchovies; Vegetable Fritters; Citrus Salad with Ginger, Cilantro, and Saffron-Toasted Pistachios; Fish and Shellfish Soup; Rolled Pork Loin Roast Stuffed with Olives and Herbs; 15-Layer Lasagna; Belgian Endive Gratin with Pecorino and Prosciutto; and an Orange and Cardamom Cream Tart. Here are meals to share with close family and good friends-to laugh, drink, and cook with-as well as dishes that give you some quiet time in the kitchen, slicing, seasoning, and simmering. With food to make introductions; to commemorate; to celebrate; even, on occasion, to gently instigate, A Recipe for Cooking is Cal Peternell at his wittiest, warmest, and most inspiring.
