Product description

Review

"Reichl amasses one of the most comprehensive cooking resources available...  Comprehensive, appetizing and thoroughly tested, this mammoth collection is the book no kitchen should be without." --Publishers Weekly (starred)
 
"Boldly confronts the new face of a changing food landscape...[a] smart companion for the contemporary kitchen." --Houston Chronicle
 
"When your neighborhood supermarket routinely stocks grass-fed beef, celeriac, and quinoa, chances are you need a book to tell you how to use them and Gourmet Today is just that book.  It's a comprehensive reference for the educated cook and eater, a book that will teach you about ingredients and inspire wonderfully satisfying meals... It's a book for modern palates and modern cooks.  And if you have recently sent your college-aged child to strike out on their own, I would strongly recommend sending them a copy of Gourmet Today."  --Serious Eats
