Fletcher has a distinctive way of choosing and combining foods to create the biggest bang of flavor from the fewest number of ingredients. That's pretty much the way I prefer to cook and eat. The Fennel and Prosciutto Gratin is sooo good. Her pastas are always a hit (the Penne with Green Cauliflower, Anchovies and Bread Crumbs is delicious and very typical of Fletcher's style), as are her soups. The Asparagus with Scramble Eggs has suggestions for several other ways to serve these two surprisingly harmonious foods which are not often combined in the US. The Persimmon "Ice Cream" is a persimmon-lover's dream.
The book is arranged by season, and each chapter starts with descriptions of the best foods of the season as well as how to select and store them. Of course these recipes are best when using ingredients at their seasonal primes, but I would happily make these recipes at any time of the year.
