Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Part of the attractive and accessible Williams-Sonoma cookbook series, this volume focuses on the transformative powers of roasting. Grunes (Gourmet Fish on the Grill) suggests roasting anything from a pork tenderloin to a piece of bluefish to leaves of raddichio and endive. The elegant Sea Bass With Pernod, which calls for only six ingredients and a minimal amount of kitchen skill, makes a perfect dinner party dish. Even easier are Halibut Steaks Au Poivre, a spicy low-fat dish that requires about 15 minutes of kitchen time. Grunes even incorporates fruits, praising the "contrast of caramelized exteriors with soft interiors" of roasted apples and plums. A simple recipe for Roasted-Apple Brown Betty turns out a crumbly comfort that leaves a kitchen smelling divine (an optional Hard Sauce of sweetened whipping cream tops off the dessert). Best of all, like every Williams-Sonoma cookbook, this guide features beautiful photographs, clear instructions and a useful glossary, enabling even a novice to roast like a pro.

I'm a pretty good cook, but for some reason, beef always (well, not always) beats me.

There are many good recipes and tips in here. I'm looking forward to trying them.

This is probably my favorite book of the series. It covers roasting of vegetables as well as meats and poultry. I can't decide on m favorite, but some favorites include, Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, Orange Glazed Ham, Halibut Steaks Au Poivre, and Short Ribs with Leeks and Spinach. If you don't get another book from this series, you should get this one.

Very good recipes in this book. Since I've bought it I've used it at least once weekly. My only complaint is that I'm used to roasting being a quick prep, this book has extensive peeping before roasting.

Book arrived in excellent condition including individually bubble wrapped around book. Roasting has all the old classics and some new; well worth the effort. Photographs worth eating!
