Fantastic Two Ingredient Cookbook Offering
on October 24, 2008
My wife and myself have become passionate fans of tomato and mozzarella salad, with basil chiffonade and slight dousing of a good Olive Oil. This of course caused great excitement to see this cookbook vectoring off with these two ingredients which are such a gorgeous culinary marriage.
It begins with help in obtaining the best of each ingredients, including growing one's own tomatoes and making one's own mozzarella from the curd stage.
The 100 T&M recipes are organized into various categoires such as breakfast/brunch, finger foods, salads, soups, etc. They are wide ranging and creative. The few that I've tried successfully are: Baked Ricotta and Mozzarella with Olives and Grape Tomato Clusters; Neopalitan Stuffed Chicken, and Potato Tart with Green Beans, Tomato and Mozzarella. Looking forward to many of the remaining 97, such as: Creamy Tomato and Mozzarella Risotto; Tomato, Swiss Chard and Mozzarella Frittata; and Layered Polenta Lasagna with Tomatoes and Mozzarrella.
There are many excellent color photos and the layout is nicely done. Many would enjoy this and put it to good use in their menu planning.
