Description

From the authors of "The Accidental Gourmet Weeknights" come 52 elegant Saturday company dinners, 52 comforting Sunday family suppers, and 23 holiday feasts. In "The Accidental Gourmet Weeknights," Sally Sondheim and Suzannah Sloan showed time-pressed cooks how to redefine their relationship with their kitchens and create stress-free, fuss-free family meals every weeknight of the year. But Sondheim and Sloan know that feeding family and friends on weekends and holidays, when expectations are higher, can be equally challenging. In "The Accidental Gourmet Weekends and Holidays," they now complete the year by giving home cooks everywhere a foolproof way to put a delicious meal on the table every Saturday, Sunday, and holiday, even with limited time and resources. The secret? Sondheim and Sloan have redesigned old-fashioned home cooking to fit perfectly into today's often hectic, fragmented lifestyle in an easy-to-follow format that allows cooks of all levels to achieve spectacular results. The taste that used to take grandma days to prepare can now be on the table in a matter of hours. Every meal is composed of main, side, and dessert dishes that have been carefully chosen to complement one another, take advantage of seasonal ingredients, minimize kitchen time, and maximize enjoyment. Each menu comes with a convenient, comprehensive, and organized shopping list and a step-by-step countdown to ensure that dinner gets to the table in the right order and at the right temperature. Having a dinner party on Saturday night? Serve roast capon with a dark cherry sauce, accompanied by herbed asparagus; hearts of palm salad with tarragon dressing; and chocolate-glazed,custard-filled pound cake. Or how about salmon steaks crusted with pepper and served with orange sauce, accompanied by sherried carrots, a bean sprout salad, and a frosted chocolate-mint cake? A family gathering on Sunday evening might offer maple-glazed ham steaks with a creamy potato casserole, green beans in a tangy mustard sauce, and a strawberry-rhubarb crisp or a chicken and vegetable stew, sour cream muffins, and apple dumplings. There are also special, sumptuous meals for holidays and celebrations. No matter the occasion, "The Accidental Gourmet Weekends and Holidays" is the one book that will guarantee a memorable meal every time.
