Tom Valenti's Soups, Stews, & One-Pot Meals (Hardcover) by Valenti, Tom
In Tom Valenti's Soups, Stews, & One-Pot Meals, Valenti and coauthor Andrew Friedman dish up the flavor that we've come to expect from a celebrated New York chef, without any of the fuss. Here are realistic recipes for the home cook--most made in a single vessel--all based on the fact that the right ingredients, left alone cooking in one pot with virtually no intervention from the cook, will steadily build glorious flavor. This is make-ahead food that gets better a day or two later, this is dinner party food, holiday food, food that's made on the weekend and savored throughout a busy week.
Beautifully designed with 16 pages of color photography, the book includes more than 125 recipes for delicious, deeply satisfying meals including Tomato, Bread, and Parmesan Soup; Creamy Smoked Cod Chowder; Lentil and Garlic Sausage Stew; Lobser Shepherd's Pie; Texas-Style Chili; and meltingly tender meats, such as Florentine Pot Roast with Red Wine, Mushrooms, and Tomatoes and Slow-Cooked Chicken in a Pot.
