Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This follow-up to The Foster's Market Cookbook offers new simple, spruced-up recipes from the author's North Carolina gourmet takeout shops. In the tradition of Martha Stewart, with whom Foster coauthored the previous book and worked as a chef in the '80s, the effortlessly elegant food also reflects Foster's Southern background, with its prevalence of sweet potatoes, cornmeal and black-eyed peas. Flavorful marinades, fresh herbs and seasonal ingredients maximize taste for quick meals on the grill or hands-off roasts. Numerous salsas and sides enliven each plate, and alternatives "for all seasons" to standards, like Twice-Baked Potatoes, Rice Pilaf, and Sautéed Shrimp, provide year-round variety. Desserts are unfussy crowd-pleasers such as Mom's Apple Cobbler with Buttermilk Biscuit Topping, and Individual Chocolate Pudding Cakes. Sidebars on "Basics" and "Tricks of My Trade" share tips on techniques, shortcuts and gadgets. Busy cooks will learn to love leftovers when delicious Slow-Roasted Pork Shoulder is transformed into spicy Green Chili, and Skillet Cornbread becomes rustic Panzanella, an Italian bread salad. This is homey, American food with a kick, sure to appeal to cooks in search of easy ways to revitalize their repertoire. 160 color photos. (May 24)


“Sara Foster is the rarest cook I know. She has a sensible, down-to-earth approach that eludes others. She understands good food. More important, she knows intuitively how to create dishes to please the widest audience imaginable. I love her style, which is graceful and homespun at the same time. She has taught me that great food really is in the details.” —Jonathan Waxman

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
`Fresh Every Day, More Great Recipes from Foster's Market' is Sara Foster's second book in about three years, with a new co-author, Carolynn Carreno, a co-author of the very good New York City bistro / bakery book, `Once Upon a Tart'. Whether it is from the change in collaborator or some other reason, Ms. Foster has succeeded in giving us a book which is not only better than her first, but it is better than books from her nearest competitors, Paula Deen and fellow Martha Stewart alum, Ina Garten. While Deen gives us very good renditions of classic Southern dishes, Ms. Foster and her allies have done a `fusion Southern' cuisine which has all the charm of the original models with maybe just a little less fat and a little more flavor. Compared to fellow caterer, Ms. Garten of Long Island, Ms. Foster gives us much more bang for our $35. I have always thought Ms. Garten's books are just a tad overpriced for their content. Sara Foster has delivered a lot more content, and more interesting content, for the same price.

While it took a fair amount of careful reading before I gave Sara's first book my five stars, my visceral pleasure with this book kicked in almost immediately, which is a sure sign that this is a quality cookbook. Very good and very bad books usually show their colors in the first few pages. When you have to look for the good stuff, it is surely an average book.

The book has just a slightly different focus than the first book, in that it covers a lot of things Ms. Foster cooks at home for her family and dishes she demonstrates when she is doing book tours and cooking classes.

For starters, I always give high marks to books with good breakfast recipes.

First the good news: the recipes and photos are every bit as wonderful as those in Sara Foster's first cookbook. That is very high praise, as you know.

We've had the book less than a week and we've made the Icebox Pickles, the Chipotle Mustard Sauce, the Chicken Salad with Apples, Grapes, And Spicy Pecans, and the Dark Chocolate Soufflé Cake. It's all so, so good!

Sara Foster, I am your devoted fan and I will probably buy any cookbook you write. However, the layout on this one is terrible: small print and not much white space. For example, the "WHAT TO SERVE WHEN" section should have been separated from the intro paragraph, instead of just changing ink color. The binding should allow the page to lie flat - after all, it's a cookbook. The book is just plain hard to read and use.

That said, I'm already waiting for the next Sara Foster cookbook!

I own both this book and her first one, and while I generally have had more success with recipes from the first, Fresh Every Day is certainly not without merit. A previous reviewer is correct in stating that the print is too small and the layout could be more user friendly. I have found that the breakfast, bread, and dessert recipes are more reliable than some of the others. I only experienced one failure from Ms. Foster's first cookbook, when the chevre stuffing wouldn't stay in the chicken thighs. It was still delicious, just not pretty.

The most important thing I can say about my experience with Ms. Foster's cookbooks is this - I e-mailed her at Foster's Market with a question, and I received a personal reply with a plausible answer. For that fact alone, I'll buy whatever she writes. I recommend both her books.

Fresh Every Day educates the adventurous novice cook and challenges those of us with years of experience in the kitchen. Both will appreciate Sara Foster's well-organized, straightforward style and plentiful tips. Each section incorporates mini-lessons that cover elementary info -- using a meat thermometer, making pie crust, cooking fish -- as well as more advanced topics -- roasting garlic, making risotto, frying sage. Looking for traditional Southern favorites? You'll find Creamy Cheesy Corn Grits, Angel Biscuits, and Molasses Sweet Potato Pie. Something more contemporary? Try the Spicy Pad Thai Salad, Pan-Seared Scallops with Citrus Tarragon Butter, or Individual Tiramisu.

After Fresh arrived in the mail, I spent my spare hours browsing the pages, becoming acquainted with Foster's home cooking with a sophisticated twist. Plenty of large, yummy photos capture the taste and texture of the recipes: fried green tomatoes coated with crunchy cornmeal; slivers of parmesan and proscuitto glistening with homemade vinaigrette; a chunk of glazed pork sliced from a baby back rib; roasted pears resting in a golden sea of syrup.

Fresh Every Day passed my shopping simplicity test. Once I chose several recipes and created my grocery list, I had no problem finding the simple, fresh ingredients at just one store, and thankfully the recipes required no new culinary equipment. Foster uses plenty of fresh herbs so I'd suggest planting pots filled with rosemary, basil, sage, and mint to avoid paying several dollars each for the small packages found in grocery stores.

Blue Heaven Smoothie, packed with fruit, a hint of cinnamon plus a tablespoon of honey, is refreshing and tart. Pickled Shrimp are perfect appetizers for picnics and tailgating. My daughter begged for the leftovers.
