"Boasts some beautiful dishes which look and taste fabulous. More important, since we love to impress at dinner, they're easily recreated."
Filled with more than 100 recipes that look and taste delicious but are simple to make, this collection will help cooks with every meal of the day, every day of the week. From weekday breakfasts--a summer smoothie and a winter warming brioche--to indulgent Sunday brunches, quick lunches, impressive dinner party dishes, and late-night snacks, Jean-Christophe has thought of everything. Make the most of seasonal ingredients and fresh herbs, and find recipes for the days when you want an immediate food fix--perhaps some flash-fried scallops--as well as those indulgent dishes when you want to spend some time in the kitchen, like a warming and slow-cooked French onion soup. Each recipe includes tips that Jean-Christophe has picked up over the years--many times options for ingredient substitutions, sometimes hints like "a splash of Pernod in the spinach enhances the flavor."
