The Winter Table: Fireside Feasts for Family and Friends
By Lisa Lemke (Author)
Overview: Come in from the cold and celebrate with family and friends! Lisa Lemke’s cookbook presents the comforting delights of hearty wintertime meals.
There’s nothing better than coming home on a wintry evening to the welcoming aroma of a bubbling stew or comforting soup. Lisa Lemke, author of The Summer Table, now changes seasons and brings her prodigious gifts to more than 75 recipes that showcase wintertime ingredients. Her soul-satisfying dishes range from a savory rye risotto with oyster mushrooms browned in butter to mouthwatering roasts and casseroles to blazingly hot chili, and even good old mac ’n’ cheese. To-die-for desserts include an apple toffee, an almond crumble, a fragrant pear pie, and sublime tiramisu. These sensational recipes will assure that everyone you love is warm, happy, and well fed.
Praise: “It is difficult to face winter’s dearth of those fresh-from-the-farm ingredients that are so abundant in summer. Living in an almost perpetually cold climate, swede Lemke (The Summer Table, 2015) makes the best of items like onions and rye, cauliflower and beets. Even better, her 100 recipes can, for the most part, be made in one pot or pan. Old and culinarily varied favorites, such as quiche, tiramisu, and pho, mingle with Scandinavian and contemporary takes on the familiar. For instance, a risotto made with rye, not rice. A tiramisu truffle cuts refrigeration time from 10 to 2 hours. Mac and cheese is lightened with softer and lesser amounts of dairy. And the secret of always-fabulous scrambled eggs is revealed (hint: heavy cream). Color photographs show all that can be, while frequent notes (such as cooking and cooling rice before frying it) . . . ensure home chefs are aware and educated. A good cookbook to have on hand in cool and warm weather alike.” —Booklist
