For a limited time we're lucky enough to have bookplates signed by Julia Turshen!
Julia Turshen is a gifted writer who is also an excellent cook. Sought after as a co-author for many cookbooks, she has also written her own popular books, Small Victories and Now & Again.
Now, in Simply Julia, she demonstrates all over again why people like her cooking and her approach so much. The book is rich with friendly stories, good ideas, and flavorful food without attitude.
Inspired by memories of her dad's Tex-Mex meatloaf, she offers a meatball version that cooks faster and works better as leftovers. Craving a muffuletta sandwich but not so interested in processed meat, she created a vegetarian version that gets much of its flavor impact from pickled iceberg lettuce. She turns the everything bagel into a handpie, and sweetens the cream cheese frosting on her carrot cake with maple syrup for some extra depth.
Throughout the book, Turshen's family and friends are everywhere as sources of inspiration, and this is the kind of smart, satisfying home cooking we'd all probably like to share with those same people in our own lives.
