The Blue Strawbery Cookbook (Cooking Brilliantly Without Recipes) Paperback – 1976
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

This wonderful book is bursting with simply-prepared yet exquisite-tasting food. I must have made just about every "recipe" from this cookbook, as well as from Another Blue Strawberry, but after heavy use in the early 80s, I moved on to other cookbooks. Lately, I'd been wanting something different from the same old Cuisine or Cooking Light recipes, and I wasn't feeling ambitious enough for Julia, so I delved back into the experimental waters, and what joy.
I respect and admire Haller's attitude about fresh, real food, as well as about about adding what you want, when you want to (such as herbs and spices, a handful or pinch of this or a glass of that). Cooking without rules may be intimidating for novice cooks, or even long-time cooks; for example, I am not sure I have the confidence or experience to bake delicate cakes without precise measurements, but Haller's cookbook is one of the few I actually enjoy reading for his viewpoint as much as for his delicious dishes, and it gives me confidence to try new things. Swordfish and chocolate brandy? Sure!
Cucumbers in sour cream with bacon; trout in a cheese custard; mushrooms stuffed with scallops, Parmigiano Reggiano and bacon; sweet carrots with curried catsup; veal baked in Frangelico; fresh fruit marinated in Chambourd, the liberal use of cream and butter and thyme, and one of my favorite desserts EVER: fresh, juicy strawberries dipped in sour cream and then brown sugar. Pure heaven.
Coming from the NH seacoast area, I was lucky enough to eat at the Blue Strawberry quite some time ago, and it was one of the best dining experiences I ever had. I walked down the street to the Ceres Street Bakery afterwards for a Cocoa Heart and my day was complete. A real taste explosion!
