The James Beard Award-winning authors ofEntertaining 101are back with another invaluable book for the modern, overextended cook. Throughout history, one-pot cooking has been a practical and convivial way to share a meal. Now, at the dawn of the new century, one-dish dinners speak directly to busy lives and fulfill our desire to share a home-cooked meal with family and friends. InStylish One-Dish Dinners, award-winning authors Linda West Eckhardt and Katherine West DeFoyd provide the recipes for 100 delicious meals that are stir-fried, sautéed, roasted, or braised, cooked in the oven or on top of the stove, including not only traditional soups, stews, and chilies, but also noodle and rice dishes, eggs, salads, and pizzas. Poultry, meat, seafood, and vegetables star in such tempting culinary creations as Beer Braised Pork Chops with Onions, Apples, Cabbage, and Currants; Slow-Roasted Barbecued Brisket and Southwestern Vegetables; and Seafood Paella with Artichoke Hearts. Each one-dish recipe is accompanied by a menu with side dishes and desserts that can be bought ready-made or quickly prepared; a beverage suggestion; and a mini cooking lesson involving a technique, a utensil, or an ingredient that the reader can then use to prepare a different recipe on another occasion. In short, the authors have thought of everything, thus liberating the busy cook from anxious speculation, the better to concentrate on the pleasures of sharing a worry-free meal.
