Ironic, nice, brilliant, Five Ways to Cook Asparagus (and other recipes) The art and practice to Making Dinner by Peter Miller a book published by ABRAMS this April 11 plenty of wonderful dinner recipes.
Mr Miller owns a book store in Seattle and in the past published a book: "Lunch at the Shop" where he explained what and how to cook while we are working. I know the feeling, because I experienced it a lot of times.
What it is important to do, says mr Miller is eating well, diversifying food.
Some people think that dinner is "a more difficult chapter if compared to lunch" in terms of preparation.
Miller affirm that the main trick, for someone busy like him and so in the rush is to keep in the house fundamental ingredients. The rest it's up to us and our fantasy.
Of course you can't miss to cook veggies, from asparagus to the rest of all the wonderful green food you can see at the supermarket or in the local farm where you buy them if of course you can't grow them directly.
We will discover the joy of eating great food, passing through good condiments like olive oil and our italian parmigiano Reggiano.
You will meet wonderful recipes of rice, five ways to cook spaghetti, I love them! or also recipes with asparagus, one of the first veggies we meet once winter is over, broccoli, carrots, onion, and so on.
Everytime important tips for cooking and for create wonderful dishes.
In the book a chapter dedicated at the base of our meals focusing the attention on legumens, rice, pasta with yummy recipes.
Of course Miller won't forget meat, fish, and desserts and also more elaborated meals for the week-end.
It' s a consolation not being alone in this thought: thinking that cooking and baking is a magical art, as also add Miller at the end of his book.
You must "feel" to me the ingredients for having a real eatable dish.You must feel love, joy, desire.
As Miller says at the end of the book: "The most important detail is you for you must believe that it matters, that it is vital, and that you can do it. You must believe that there is even some magic to it, that a meal well cooked is a gift and a protection and an honor - and an integral part of each day."
I thank NetGalley and ABRAMS for this book.
