That recipe is a perfect example of the strength of this book: it combines easy-to-find ingredients (in this case Uncle Ben's wild rice) some interesting produce (chineese pead pods) a bit of flair (red and orange bell peppers) and a California twist (avocados and toasted pecans) and a secret ingredient (what is it? you'll have to get the book!) to create terrific rice salad with a great mustard-based dressing that is somehow much more than the sum of its culinary parts.
You can tell by looking at these recipes that they have been honed by cooks who enjoy food, both its preparation and presentation, but don't want to be tied to a stove while their guests are enjoying themselves. There are also great recipes for families that take ordinary ingredients in interesting combinations to make an every-day dinnner much more interesting.
I can say without exaggeration that every single recipe I have made out of this book has exceeded my expectations, and quite a few have joined my 'greatest hits' rotation.
Even if you already have 50 cookbooks, make a little room on the shelf for this one.
I learned of this book at a lunch where one of the cookbook's praiseworthy recipes was served. There was almost a stunned silence when the group learned I didn't have it on my bookshelf. Well, I do now and don't regret it for a minute. American cuisine has long been extremely underrated.
