One Pot Emeril,
This review is from: Sizzling Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders (Emeril's) (Paperback)
Emeril Lagasse has made the perfect cookbook for upgrading and giving an international flavor to one pot cooking. This is perfect for cooking for company that comes to stay for a while. The food is hearty, but a bit different and not that complicated. Our family has put this book right to use and the consensus is favorable, especially for butternut squash lasagna with Italian sausage and sage (perfect for using up the garden's bounty of squash), turkey club casserole, cola-braised pot roast with vegetables, and braciole - except we substituted ground beef for the bottom round and it was a success as well.
There are about 130 recipes for use with your cast iron skillets, Dutch ovens and slow cookers. The book is divided by skillets and sauté pans, casseroles and baking dishes, Dutch ovens, big pots, woks and slow cookers. These are all, with only a few exceptions main dishes. There is an index with ingredient, type of dish and recipe name included and a word or two from Emeril about each dish. There are pictures for about each 5th recipe, but the presentation and cooking methods are not that complicated.
This would be a good addition for cookbook collections and those who enjoy less complicated dishes, but with more of a more sophisticated flavor.
