The Best of Food: Marion Kane's Favorite Recipes from the Toronto Star
This book is packed with meatless main dishes featuring grains, beans and gussied-up veggies, from risotto to ratatouille to tamale pie. There's lots of low-fat fare that refuses to sacrifice flavor, with an abundance of specialties from far-flung places, such as Tandoori Chicken, Carib Squash Dumplings, and Southern Barbecued Pork. A chapter devoted to holiday cooking will be a boon for harried hosts-it runs the gamut from latkes (a must at Chanukah) to turkey with its trimmings (including an indispensable roasting chart), to a luscious carrot cake ideal for weddings.
In a nutshell, these are recipes for real food that real people will want to make. This is a book that reflects the current trends, without being trendy. These recipes are tried, tested and true-this is truly a cookbook that no kitchen should be without.
