This unique cookbook will be used again and again for its inspirational stories, informative sidebars, helpful tricks, and most of all, for its broad range of never-fail recipes that are easy to follow and always special. It's About Time contains more than 150 meticulously tested recipes that range broadly from 30-minute meals and summer barbeques to elegant entertaining. There's even a chapter on spending an entire day in the kitchen—a bottle of wine, music on the stereo—engaging in some much-needed "culinary therapy."
It's About Time honors the traditions and social importance of food and eating while recognizing the realities of life today. Visually stunning and indispensably useful, it breaks the cookbook mold in ways that are exciting and refreshing.
