Jeff Smith, the frugal gourmet, has reached tens of millions of television viewers via his cooking television shows. In The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American, Jeff launches on a fresh exploration of food, family and kitchen. Here 'the Frug' discusses such widely diverse topics as loneliness, guilt and healthy eating, as well as common sense approaches to kitchen design, keeping in mind the special needs of our rapidly aging population. This is a book that truly reflects the important changes taking place in American cooking, and one that turns the joys of cooking--and eating--to their rightful place: the kitchen.
