Home Cooking with Kate McDermott by Kate McDermott
When she isn't making pie, Kate McDermott has people to feed. From roasted chicken and veggies for Sunday supper to batches of hearty soup to reheat when there's no time to cook, this practical cookbook focuses on staple recipes for people who aren't looking for a part-time job in the kitchen. Using ingredients that can be found in any supermarket and techniques that every home cook needs, McDermott shares tasty and repeatable meals for friends and family. Like those in Art of the Pie, these recipes are accompanied by moving stories--from anecdotes of single motherhood to building a home in the foothills of the Olympic mountains. Andrew Scrivani's stunning photographs appear throughout.
