With simple, quick cooking techniques—MoreThe Groundbreaking First Cookbook by Americas Preeminent Four-Star Chef First published in 1990, Simple Cuisine has been declared a classic by such publications as The New York Times and Eating Well magazine. With simple, quick cooking techniques—steaming, sautéing, and stirfrying—and flavorful, low-fat sauces, Jean-Georges Vongerichten proves that robust restaurant tastes can easily be recreated by home cooks. More than 200 recipes, ranging from Sea Scallops with Garlic and Saffron Oil to Lamb with Artichokes and Olives, will delight with their robust flavors and simple preparations. More than 20 thirty-minute menus are collected here for when you need to quickly put together a dinner party. And when its time to indulge, Jean-Georges serves up delectable sorbets, ice creams, and sweets. Whats more, Simple Cuisine proves that fine dining at home doesnt need to take all day to prepare. Here, the complex sauces of classic French cuisine have been replaced with basic building blocks—vinaigrettes, flavored oils, extracted vegetable juices, and simmered vegetable broths—with the ultimate goal of enabling the home cook to prepare elegant food that is light and effortless. Haute cuisine does not need to be enjoyed only in a restaurant. With Simple Cuisine, Jean-Georges Vongerichten has proven that the exquisite flavors of four-star cooking can be enjoyed at home, without spending hours in the kitchen.
