The book is well bound and stays open on its own without the use of a cookbook stand. The recipes within are arranged by season in beginning with autumn and ending with spring. McCoy incorporates lots of fruits, nuts, and occasionally vegetables into her recipes so she groups them according to when these ingredients will be in season so they taste their best. I try to cook seasonally, but I am still getting accustomed to cookbooks being arranged seasonally. I admit that I find I get more use out of a cookbook when chapters are labeled by food category rather than by season. She includes a wonderful seasonal harvest calendar that will tell you what tastes best when and what produce is fresh year round.
Her introduction is telling. McCoy has worked with everyone from Emeril Lagasse to Tom Colicchio but she is practical in refreshing ways in the kitchen. If you accidentally have the oven too hot, she espouses shortening the baking time. She's all for nonstick spray to grease baking pans. She doesn't measure out specific amounts of citrus juices. I found these tips to be refreshing. She expects her readers to be able to think and improvise and appreciate a little time saved in the kitchen. The index is well referenced and she introduces each recipe with a short blurb about why it is special.
This is not a dessert book for the beginner.Read more ›
