Home Cooking with Kate McDermott (Hardcover)
This book goes beyond dessert to share Kate’s style of cooking at home, where she always keeps an extra place at the table for guests. There’s nothing fancy about her Kitchen Sink Nachos, Make-Ahead Layered Salad, Winter Vegetable Shepherd’s Pie, and Berry Good Coffee Cake. It’s all about comfort and ease. “If you are looking for quick, satisfying recipes, for mainly one-dish meals, to please even the pickiest of eaters, you have come to the right place,” she says.— Miriam
Satisfying, mainly one-dish meals from the author of Art of the Pie
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. Her healthy, affordable, and delicious recipes include:
- Pie Cottage Scones
- How to Roast a Chicken
- Snowy Day Lentil Soup
- Tiny Chocolate Chippers
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.
