Simply Wonderful Recipes for Wonderfully Simple Foods
Simply Wonderful Recipes for Wonderfully Simple Foods Author:Robert Quarry Preface — I realize most people never read prefaces to books, but I hope you will give just a few seconds to reading this one. — Not that you will find deathless prose in the next few paragraphs. Its is only that I feel compelled to explain my reasoning in putting this cookbook together. — You will not find anything resembling "Haute Cuisine," "No... more »uvelle Cuisine" or any other "Cuisine of the moment" recipes in this little book. A stew will be called a stew, not a "Ragout." A pork roast will not masquerade as a "Roti du Porc," nor will eggs be referred to as "Oeufs."
There will be no mention of Quiche, Sushi or Thai recipes requiring Lemon Grass.
I had originally planned to title this book "The Little Bit of Difference Cookbook" because it seemed to say exactly what the content (and intent) would be.
The recipes presented here will, I hope, not be too mind-boggling. They do have different degrees of difficulty; but I think I have laid them out in clear and easy steps. They are, basically, recipes for foods we all know, but ones that, with a few adjustments, take on a more intriguing "attitude."
