Imagine that your best friend is the kind of gifted cook who can turn almost anything into a tasty meal, whether it’s an armful of farmers’ market impulse buys or the odds-and-ends of a refrigerator when you’re housebound some snowy evening.
In Now & Again, Julia Turshen is that best friend, and she really wants to help you be that kind of cook too.
A seasonally-arranged collection of wildly practical recipes supplemented by hints on making use of any leftovers, Now & Again abounds in short ingredient lists, the flavors of many cuisines, and confidence-inspiring advice that’s intended to liberate you. And if your kitchen skills and imagination are already strong, who are you to say no to the likes of a salad of grilled okra and corn with lemon and red chile? Or stir-fried roasted eggplant with pork? Or yogurt cake with fig preserves?
A home cooking standout.
