The success of Stephanie Izard's Chicago restaurant, Girl & the Goat, and all its Goat Group offspring have eclipsed even her Top Chef fame, and still she persists! Her new roles as wife and mom have added a new dimension to her already remarkable career. In, this, her latest book, we see a glimpse of those changes with a seriously home-cook friendly volume of deceptively simple recipes and an emphasis on good times with friends and loved ones.
Izard's character and flair for flavor are ever-present —there is nothing "basic" about even her most basic dishes. How about a brunch of steak and eggs, but this time smothered in Moroccan chermoula; or crepes in the form of "tasty eggy kimchi bacon thing" (a spin on a classic Thai street food)? Each chapter of recipes also offers a menu for entertaining with great tips to make it as smooth as possible.
