HIGHLAND VILLAGE, Texas (PRWEB) July 29, 2003 -
Style Cooking with 5 Ingredients is good news for busy cooks who want luxury from their food, but donÂt have the luxury of time.
Author Deborah Anderson combines high-quality foods and fresh seasonings to create easy, elegant 5-ingredient recipes that might otherwise have 15 ingredients or more. Some well-chosen shortcuts, plus chefÂs notes and definitions written for the everyday cook, make Easy Gourmet-Style Cooking with 5 Ingredients a realistic cookbook for todayÂs busy lifestyles.
Gourmet cooking has traditionally been associated with long lists of ingredients and complicated instructions. Those recipes just arenÂt practical for todayÂs busy cooks, Anderson said.
ÂThere was a time when long, complicated recipes didnÂt phase me. But marriage, motherhood and a full-time job changed all that!Â she said.
ÂI looked at those long recipes and came to the conclusion that all the ingredients might not be necessary. Maybe recipes could be simplified and still capture the essence of the flavors,Â she said.
Anderson first began modifying her extensive recipe collection so that each recipe contained just 5 ingredients. From there she created original dishes using fresh and robust ingredients, refusing to compromise on flavor.
The result is a simple, thorough, easy-to-follow cookbook that anyone can use. Even beginners can create dishes like Broccoli Dijon with Toasted Almonds, Grilled Garlic-Lime Chicken, Fettuccine Italiano, White Chocolate Cheesecake Bites and Red Strawberries in Pink Champagne.
Anderson uses simple language, chefÂs notes, cooking tips and definitions for a non-intimidating approach to what she calls a gourmet Âfood adventure.Â
Easy Gourmet-Style Cooking with 5 Ingredients includes appetizers, salads, accompaniments, main dishes and desserts, plus menus for entertaining and a shopping list. A special ÂQuick ListÂ section offers an introduction to gourmet pastas, cheeses, oils, liqueurs, mushrooms, sauces and more.
