Starting May 2007, this month’s Cook the Book Club pick is Tasty: Get Great Food on the Table Everyday by notable food editor Roy Finamore. Among the authors that he has published are: Martha Stewart, Ina Garten, Tom Colicchio, Diana Kennedy, Anne Willan and Lee Bailey. At the recent James Beard Awards (a.k.a.: “the Oscars of the Food World”), Finamore won the very competitive General Category for this new book.
Receiving rave reviews,Tasty is organized by simple but exceptional meals – breakfast, lunch, weeknight dinners, weekend cooking – plus soups, salads, nibbles and desserts. Finamore’s philosophy – “Good, simple food is meant to be shared and enjoyed. Cook often.” And we do, from this book. We love having it on our shelf and have found so many great, simple recipes. It is a must-have book.
