To the hundreds of thousands who follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, Dorie Greenspan's food is powerfully cookable--her recipes instant classics. In Everyday Dorie , she invites readers into her kitchen to savor the dishes that she makes all the time, from Miso-Glazed Salmon to Lemon Goop.

What makes a "Dorie recipe"?

Each one has a small surprise that makes it special. Mustard and walnuts in the cheese puffs. Cherry tomatoes stuffed into red bell peppers and oven-charred. Cannellini beans in cod en papillote. The dishes are practical, made with common ingredients from the supermarket, farmers' market, or pantry, like Sweet Chili Chicken Thighs, which is both weeknight simple and fine enough for company, and Eton Mess, a beautifully casual dessert of crumbled meringue, fruit, and whipped cream. They are easygoing, providing swaps and substitutions. They invite mixing and matching. Many can be served as dinner, or as a side dish, or as an appetizer, or hot, cold, or room temperature. And every single one is like a best friend in the kitchen, full of Dorie's infectious love of cooking and her trademark hand-holding directions.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Greenspan (Around My French Table), five-time James Beard Award winner, shares her favorite day-to-day recipes in this standout cookbook. Greenspan spends part of the year in France, and the Gallic influence is felt in such recipes as a roast chicken with a Dijon vinaigrette, and a salmon brandade. New York's flavors show up in a smoked-salmon and cream-cheese-filled Lower East Side brunch tart; stuffed cabbage; and Basta Pasta potato salad, named for a Manhattan Italian restaurant. There are tastes of her travels as well, such as a Luang Prabang chicken-chili sandwich she ate nightly on a visit to Laos, and a bourbon roasted pork loin inspired by a trip to Kentucky. She offers a wide range of intriguing soups and salads, including a gingered turkey meatball soup; tomato and berry gazpacho; and cauliflower tabbouleh. Easy, delicious weeknight meals abound, such as a quick tahini pork tenderloin; umami-heavy burgers; and squid with miso-seasoned corn; Giverny tomatoes (prepared with lime zest, sugar, and flake salt) and a sheet-pan supper of balsamic chicken with baby potatoes. She includes such exceptional desserts as a molasses coffee cake and chocolate-covered chai tea bars. Whether readers are just discovering Greenspan or are part of her fan base, they will be thrilled with this. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
