Gourmet meals with minimal fuss Aug 18, 2003
Sometimes it is absolutely amazing what a good cook can pull together. You will be amazed at the things you can create with "Easy Gourmet-Style Cooking With 5 Ingredients" at your side. Each recipe may only have five ingredients but you may find it a little more difficult to find some of them at the local grocery store. Of the recipes that I tried I had no problem finding the ingredients for all but two of them and those ingredients were still easily found by going to a local health food store. The book starts with an excellent educational section on the differences between various species of mushrooms, olives, cooking oils, cheeses, pears, etc. This section is a good place to turn when you are looking at a recipe that has an ingredient you are not sure about. The rest of the book is divided into the usual categories - appetizers, salads, accompaniments, main dishes, desserts - and several final pages with food equivalents, pan volumes, and a fine section on herbs.
For each recipe there is a page of "Chef's Notes" that includes optional ingredients, cooking tips, variations, and information on special ingredients as appropriate. All the recipes that I tried not only used only a few ingredients but also were easy to make and absolutely delicious. Some of my favorites were Lightly Battered Portobello Fries, Phyllo Sticks with Roasted Red Peppers and Provolone Cheese, Wild Rice with Toasted Pine Nuts and Cranberries, Seared Scallops with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, Gorgonzola-Apple Stuffed Cornish Hens, and White Chocolate Cheesecake Bites. If you want to prepare a gourmet meal from no-fail recipes that are a minimum of fuss then you can't go wrong with this book. "Easy Gourmet-Style Cooking with 5 Ingredients" is sure to become a favorite in any kitchen and is a highly recommended book.
