Seems like I've been waiting forever for Gwen Kenneally's Sweet and Savory Cookbook, and I must say it's been worth the wait. Gwen's combination of ingredients are creative, so typical of her style. I love the personal touch of family, friends and tradition incorporated into her expression of suggestions and recipes. Liked the book so much, I got one for my daughter. I look forward to her next book!
Sweet & Savory is everything that was promised... recipes are easy to follow & taste great! I enjoyed the variety of recipes and that nothing was too fussy. A beginning cook could easily make these recipes and be successful, yet a more accomplished cook could create and elegant meal as well. I am hoping that there are more books by Gwen beginning planned.
Haven't yet tried the food recipes, but so far my Friday martini parties have been a hit. I LOVE the rosemary and lemon martini recipe. However, I did discover the type of limoncello you purchase does matter. We like Villa Massa, available at BevMo. The food recipes seem seasonal so will be trying them as we get into spring/summer. Overall, happy with the purchase and very inspired by the cookbook.
Gwen gives us simple, elegant and tasty dishes. Sweet and Savory cookbook is a "must have" for any and ever occasion. My favorite dish is the Pear and Butternut Squash Soup, Yum Yum. You will not be disappointed.
