I enjoyed reading about the Pollan Family meals and how despite leading busy lives, they sat down together (at the family table) most evenings. An act that's been cultivated across their entire family for generations.
This hardcover cookbook is nicely laid out with bright beautiful food photographs of almost every recipe and lots of pictures of the Pollan family members. It has easy delectable real food recipes, pantry and utensil suggestions and cooking terms explained in everyday language. This cookbook is also full of valuable cooking tips. Most helpful to me... the "Pasta Rules" **hangs head in shame...turns out I was doing it all wrong**
First recipe on my must-make list, is Citrus-Roasted Chicken with Grand Marnier (page 29), that I plan to serve with plain roasted potatoes, as well as Brussels Sprouts with Pine Nuts and Dried Cranberries (page 245). Yum, I can hardly wait to sit down with The Hubs for that dinner!
The Pollan Family Table is not a fad cookbook. I do believe it has staying power. Much like my dog-eared 35-year-old copy of Betty Crocker's Cookbook, I predict that the recipes (and valuable cooking tips) in The Pollan Family Table will still be relevant years from now. This cookbook is one that will be handed down and used for generations.
