Delicious & Exciting Comfort Food You Need to Try
You haven’t lived until you’ve added garlic French fries to your salad. Or better yet, try jalapeños stuffed with goat cheese and ricotta. Oh, add pasta with seared scallops, red pastrami and marsala cream to the list. These are just some of the insanely satisfying comfort food recipes Chef Kerry Altiero and Katherine Gaudet have up their sleeves.
The Best Comfort Food on the Planet takes ordinary dishes like mac ’n cheese, salad and lasagne and turns them into Lobster Mac ’N Cheese, Hot Dressed Salad and Sorta Lasagne. Make Brussels sprouts a favorite by slow cooking them in cream, pizza more exciting with some Thai sweet chili sauce, and pot roast new again when topped with blue cheese.
Each recipe has a unique approach that takes the flavor to new levels of greatness for you and your family. With one-of-a-kind recipes throughout, this book is a surefire way to have your dinner guests talking about your food and coming back for more.
Organized into two parts, you’ll discover the building blocks for inspired food. Part One explores traditional preservation techniques from fermenting and pickling to dehydrating, working with sourdough, and making broth, butter, yogurt, and whey. Part Two becomes a full expression of ingredients and techniques: recipes that are nourishing, flavorful, and satisfying. With recipes that layer flavors in rich and unique ways and that reflect the seasons, the dishes here are comforting, surprising, and give a feeling of abundance. Heirloom is a personal book that shares Owens’ unique perspectives and stories on food.
