Alfred Portale : Simple Pleasures [Signed by the Author]

£17.99

Product description

Signed First Edition. Large signature and message written over the front end papers.

Published in 2004 by HarperCollins. Extensively illustrated with colour photographs. Home Cooking from the Gotham Bar and Grill's Acclaimed Chef.

In Alfred Portale Simple Pleasures, one of most accomplished chefs invites you to taste the sublime and surprisingly easy-to-prepare, restaurant-quality dishes he serves to friends and family at home.
The 125 recipes include home versions of Gotham classics as well as new recipes straight from Portale's home kitchen. They're all simple enough for any home cook, and spectacular enough to impress anyone who tastes them.
At the centre of Alfred Portale Simple Pleasures are elemental main courses such as Roast Cod with a New England Chowder Sauce, Filet Mignon with Madeira Sauce, and Sauteed Chicken Breasts with Button Mushrooms and Sage. Pick one, then build a meal by pairing it with recipes from the chapters of salads, starters, and small plates; soups, sandwiches, and pizzas; pasta and risotto; side dishes; and desserts. The supermarket-friendly dishes include modern classics such as Spicy Shrimp Salad with Mango, Avocado, and Lime Vinaigrette; Pumpkin and Caramelized Onion Soup with Gruyere and Sage; and Sauteed Spinach with Garlic, Ginger, and Sesame Oil. Alfred helps you transform everything from ordinary weekday lunches to Saturday night dinner parties into anything but ordinary.

Complete with unclipped dust jacket, which has some light rubbing wear to the top edge. Fresh and clean with a firm binding. Some small creases on the corners of 3 or 4 pages.
