Alice Waters is an icon in the food world - as one of the most influential chefs in the organic and vegetarian movements in America for the past thirty years, water's latest cookbook presents food simply and deliciously through 19 lessons, followed by another 150 pages of recipes that correspond to each lesson. The lessons provide an overview and information on techniques that runs a couple of pages, then present a single recipe to highlight that lesson, and cover everything from slow cooking to sauces to cookies. Almost all the recipes in the book contain just a few simple ingredients (hence the title!) yet offer variations at the end to increase your repertoire. For those of you trying to sneak more veggies into your diet, Waters includes some great options like Green Beans with Toasted Almonds and Lemon, Carrot Puree with Caraway and Cumin, and Broccoli Rabe wiht Garlic and Hot Pepper. This book lives up to it's name - I love this book!
