Cooking can be one of life's essential pleasures, even when
you have to put dinner on the table every night. Now, with
Mark Bittman's trusted voice as your guide, quick, easy, and
fresh meals are always a realistic option.
Presented here are 404 dishes -- 101 for each season -- that
will get you in and out of the kitchen in 20 minutes or
less. Mark Bittman's recipe sketches provide exactly the
directions a home cook needs to prepare a repertoire of
eggs, seafood, poultry, meats, vegetables, sandwiches, and
even desserts. Add a salad here, a loaf of bread there, and
these dishes become full meals that are better than takeout
and far less expensive.
These 404 recipes are as delicious and sophisticated as they
are simple: Make the most of summer produce with Scallop and
Peach Ceviche or Apricot Cream Upside-Down Pie. When the air
starts to cool, try Salmon and Sweet Potato with Coconut
Curry Sauce or Broiled Brussels Sprouts with Hazelnuts. On a
cold winter night, warm up with White Bean Stew served over
crusty slices of olive oil-brushed baguette. Or welcome
spring with Shrimp with Asparagus, Dill, and Spice or
Poached Eggs and Truffled Arugula Prosciutto Salad.
Because good ingredients are the backbone of delicious home
cooking, Bittman includes a guide to the foods you'll want
on hand to cook the Kitchen Express way, as well as
suggestions for seasonal menus and lists of recipes for
specific uses, like brown-bag lunches or the best dishes for
reheating. With Mark Bittman's Kitchen Express, you can have
dinner on the table in not much more time than it takes to
read a traditional recipe.
