Globe and Mail columnist and CityLine regular Lucy Waverman brings us home for dinner!

Beloved cookbook author Lucy Waverman is known for her recipes that sing with flavour and are a snap to prepare. Home For Dinner is her latest collection of over 200 extraordinary recipes that reflect contemporary tastes and trends — and don’t tax your time.

Home For Dinner takes its inspiration from the today’s desire to find time in busy schedules to cook great-tasting food. In a special section called “Fast and Slow,” Lucy serves up a raft of recipes that are easy to prepare but cook over a long period of time so that all their flavour and succulence is showcased. Try Umbrian Ragu, Osso Bucco or Braised Lamb Shanks with Middle Eastern Spices for a new dinnertime treat. Slow cooking is this century’s way to cook -- and these dishes can be enjoyed as family suppers or as easy dinners for entertaining.

As well as mouth-watering recipes for both simple and elegant main dishes, fabulous appetizers, silky soups and fruity desserts, Lucy suggests what to stock in your pantry for maximum flexibility, so you can cook without shopping. Also included are short recipes for flavourful rubs, chili pastes, marinades, vinegars and oils that make a dull dinner come alive.

Rounded out with useful cooking tips and techniques on every page, you’ll find it is easier than ever to cook and entertain at home.
