From award-winning author and renowned cooking instructor James Peterson, a full-color cookbook of more than 200 time-efficient recipes that put dinner on the table with minimal prep, while delivering maximum flavor.
With Kitchen Simple, James Peterson reminds us that good food does not need to be complicated. For this volume, he has focused his mastery of all things culinary into creating streamlined recipes that are easy to make and extraordinarily satisfying to eat. All of the dishes in this diverse collection require a minimum of active prep time (in most cases no more than 30 minutes) and nearly all can be on the table in under an hour. Cooks of all skill levels will appreciate Peterson’s artful approach to cooking that results in simple and delicious flavors. Who knew that Chicken Enchiladas with Green Sauce, Tuscan Bread and Tomato Salad, Thai-Style Hot and Sour Soup, and Roast Pears with Butterscotch Sauce could all be considered fast food?
James Peterson began his career as a restaurant cook in Paris in the 1970s. Back in the United States in the 1980s, he honed his French cooking techniques as a chef-partner at Le Petit Robert in New York. A cooking instructor for over two decades, Peterson teaches at the Institute of Culinary Education (formerly Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School) and is the author of fourteen cookbooks. His books have earned six James Beard awards. /p
