From Italy to Indiana, Japan to Louisiana, one-pot cooking has been
the basis of many cuisines around the world. Before the advent of
electric stoves and central heating, a pot would often be hung over
the fireplace, and meat and vegetables added as required. This was
the hearth, the center of the home, and it was here that families
gathered to eat and talk. Many of those same dishes-updated for
today's palates-are featured here.
Arranged in chapters by type of pot used-from soup pots to slow
cookers to Dutch ovens, "Just One Pot" includes more than 300
classic recipes, compiled by chefs from around the world. Hundreds
of color photos showcase the recipes, and historical anecdotes
about the culinary traditions from which they sprung are sprinkled
Soups. Stir-frys. Casseroles. Curries. What is more satisfying
than combining foods cooked together in a single vessel, providing
an array of wonderful aromas, textures, and colors?
Whether you're a gourmet chef exploring new methods or a busy mom
concerned about easy nutritious meals, " Just One Pot" offers
something for all tastes and every occasion.
