The book contains recipes for; condiments and basics, salads, soups, snacks and cocktails, pizza, pasta, noodles, grains and rice, main course, side dishes and desserts. She lists things to stock the pantry with and equipment and tools. There are also pages of advice on how she cooks and methods she prefers to use.
Some of the recipes take a bit of preparation, but if you enjoy cooking - they are not really that high of a difficulty. Pictures are included of many of the dishes and there is an index.
Our family has enjoyed; matzo ball soup, my mom's noodles with chicken, carrots and peas, pork tenderloin schnitzel with plum gastrique, and baked marble or Yukon gold potatoes with brown butter-sour cream sauce.
This is a book for those who wish to try some classic recipes with a bit of a different twist.
