Bread, Tomato, Garlic is a cookbook written with quality of life in mind. We all love good food, but not everyone has the time, or the inclination, to spend hours whipping up a meal with 20 ingredients, half of which will never be used again. In Bread, Tomato, Garlic, Jill Dupleix invites you to relax, take three, and make yourself a meal.
With witty suggestions and tantalizing recipes, Dupleix teaches you to shop smart and cook fast so you can do what you love best-enjoy your food slowly. Recipes focus on just three main ingredients to create dishes that are not only delicious but also simple to prepare. From an Italian salad of baby clams, cannellini beans, and fresh mint to Spanish tapas of potatoes, spicy sausage, and onion, Bread, Tomato, Garlic keeps it short, sweet, and straight to the table. Grill eggplant, zucchini, and red peppers, marinate them in olive oil and herbs, and use them in a hundred different ways. Trade your cereal box for creamy avocado, crisp bacon, and thick sourdough bread and your breakfast will be a minor masterpiece. Even dessert is easy. Mix chocolate, rum, and coffee into a rich espresso mousse or turn ladyfingers, ice cream, and berries into little eclairs. The method is simple. The possibilities are endless.
Jill Dupleix believes that simple food is never boring. and she'll convince you as well. In Bread, Tomato, Garlic, she combines practicality and humor with mouth-watering recipes that anyone can put together quickly and effortlessly. Most of the recipes in the book can be prepared and cooked within 30 minutes, but speed is simply a fringe benefit. At heart, Bread, Tomato, Garlic is about treating yourself well.
Discover a new world of flavor with Bread, Tomato, Garlic. It's a reminder of how good simple food can be, and how simple good food can be.
