That said, I have had hits and misses with her previous cookbooks. Mostly hits, but I really hated the Miso Dressing form one of the earlier books. I love miso dressing, just not that one. But, all in all (and ignoring a couple of head-scratchers, like the recipe for Grilled Cheese), this book has page after page of recipes that speak to me and the way I try to eat now - foods with high flavor and healthier ingredients. The desserts with coconut milk are my new happy place (the Peach Shake is yummy!), but coconut milk is not everybody's cup of tea, so there's that.
I honestly never expect to make, or like, all of the recipes in any cookbook. In fact, I am thrilled when I can find a few "keepers," and this book has definitely provided three absolute keepers so far:
–– Zuni Sheet Pan Chicken - this is one of the best "easy" recipes I've ever, EVER made. This adaptation of Judy Rodgers's legendary, but too complicated, Zuni Cafe Roast Chicken packs a different kind flavor punch in much short time and with many fewer steps and ingredients, while delivering a result that is just as delicious. (This recipe has also been published online in UK newspapers)
–– Blistered Shishito Peppers - easier appetizers than this are hard to find, especially one that is this unusual, and I had leftover aioli to boot. (Trader Joe's carries shishito peppers now and so does my sadly less-than-gourmet local supermarket.)
–– Soft Polenta with Sautéed Mushrooms - this is comfort food minus the guilt. I have truffle salt that I received as a gift and use that in place of the truffle oil called for. Not sure if the oil would be any better, but it was a very good dish regardless.
In addition, to the Peach Shake mentioned above, the
Bacon Avocado Toast (I omitted the almond butter in favor of actual butter) really made me wonder how I had never thought of that over decades of eating plain avocado toast for breakfast.
The Poke bowls (I omit the rice) are delicious, as is the very simple Candied Kabocha Squash.
There are beautiful photos of many, but not all, of the dishes. I wish most of the numerous photos of Gwyneth were of the food, but it's her book, so....
Bottom line: Many useful, easy recipes. Not all of them are earth-shaking or terribly original, but there are a definitely some great keepers that ensure I'll be going back to this book again and again.
