When it arrived from Amazon, I tried a recipe the first day and it's now sitting prominently on my counter because I'm using it so frequently. It contains chapters on Starters : Salads : Soups & Sides : Dinners : Desserts.
As with many modern cookbooks, the photography is inviting but with these the photos are true to the end product.
I like that she provides suggestions for what to serve each recipe with. She sometimes offers suggestions for substitutions, and if the recipe is ideally suited for making a day or two ahead of expected company.
I've tried so many of the recipes so far and one of them twice (Seared Duck & Orange Salad, though I substituted chicken for the duck), that I won't list them all. But here are a few of our favourites from the many I've made: "Blue Cheese, Bosc Pear, & Pecan Salad", "Crudites with Nutty Miso Dressing" (great and simple when you have guests), "Caramelized Onion & Gorgonzola Tarts", "Tuscan Style Lemon & Herb Split Chicken", "Grilled Steak with Oven Roasted Tomatoes, Blue Cheese, & Red WIne Demi-Glaze", oh and the outstanding "Halibut with Wasabi Pea Crust"! -- that was amazing and so quick and easy. Now I feel guilty leaving out some of the other memorable dishes but you get the idea. She also explained a simple way to ensure fish is done correctly which I've been following ever since - no more overcooked fish in our house :)
One thing every one of the recipes has in common so far is flavour -- there is a distinct and delightful flavour to each dish -- never something bland or boring. Just because the dishes are full of flavour, they are not difficult to make.Read more ›
Shelley's recipes are not complicated. The instructions are clear, easy to follow, the pictures are enticing and the results are excellent. A few of the recipes are a take on classics but with a refreshed look, but mostly this is a book using fresh ingredients to make some great recipes. Of the recipes I have made so far, they have all turned out exactly as expected. If you like to entertain and would like some go-to recipes that are fresh, uncomplicated and very tasty, add this book to your cooking arsenal.
My one issue is Adams does add where to buy the ingredients in her home town - a bit of a waste of time considering her books are sold across Canada and a very small percentage of users would find that little tidbit useful. Yup, that is the worst I can say about this cookbook.
My guess is you won't buy just one book in this series - buy one and you will be hooked.

Always have loved these cooks and will think about buying another of her books. Prefer her own recipes to those of some of her friendsPublished on Jan. 10 2013 by Eileen Osachoff
