Simple Fare: Spring/Summer is a richly illustrated resource focused on seasonal, market-driven cooking. Centered on simple meals and balanced flavor profiles, Simple Fare consists of 65 seasonal, elegant, but pared-back recipes for classic dishes. All of the dishes--such as Chive Gnudi with Brown Butter and Chanterelle Mushrooms, or Crispy Chicken with Garlic Toast, Herb Oil, and Broccolette--showcase the beauty of fresh ingredients and rely on simple preparations. Each recipe also includes three to five alternative flavour profiles, allowing readers to adapt the recipe based on the ingredients at hand, creating a total of 350 recipes. Illustrated with hundreds of striking photographs, Simple Fare is a kitchen essential that will encourage readers to find inspiration in their local farmers' market offerings, cook intuitively, and enjoy a wide array of beautiful and delicious meals.
