The introduction includes definitions of cooking terms, measurements, techniques, and ingredients.
The chapters are: Soup, Salads, Seafood, Poultry, Beef, Pork, Lamb, Vegetarian, Sides, Desserts, Breakfasts. The author does have the good sense to suggest buying cakes and cookies as trying to make these for two is difficult. The salad chapter is a tiny 7 receipes.
Of the receipes I have cooked so far, the sauces for the chicken are wonderful and the salmon receipes are good. However, watch the timing. I've had to adjust the times downward after sauteing chicken breasts for the specified time and they were very dry. The author lives in Florida so citrus is used laviously in his receipes.
I look forward to the cooler weather to try out the soup receipes.
One feature that I loved about this cookbook is that the author has also included "Table for Two Tips" that go with the recipes. These "Tips" are personal notes and suggestions from Warren on an assortment of cooking topics such as "how to purchase chicken leg quarters" to "thawing fish" to "cooking indoors: seared and roasted steak". Even the beginner cook will find these recipes easy, because Warren included other helpful tips such as "basic cooking terms".
Now that I've tried a few of these recipes, (Steak Diane is my personal favorite so far) I'm going to order 3 more cookbooks for wedding gifts and a few more for my college students!
I know i will probably hear that this is not the venue to ask for recipe help but i think in this case it directly influenced my rating.
I didn't write down all the other things-a few other things-that i read that did not quite make sense but since this was the only recipe that i actually wanted to make, this was the one i quoted. As I stated earlier i know there had been some issues with other recipes in earlier versions but i checked and those recipes are fine but still-----I am not a great cook and was very excited about this book being updated with the errors corrected but i still think this book needs to be rechecked-if i have missed something I apoligize but i must have reread the recipe a dozen times and see nothing about potatoes-I am only dwelling as if this recipe is incomplete i am hesitant about trying others.
There are other ingredients to this recipe but i am just going to deal with the potatoes here--
Page 112-Sauteed Chicken With Broccoli And Potatoes
1/2 pound small red potatoes
other ingredients which i am not listing including the chicken and the broccoli--
"Cook potatoes in boiling water to blanch. About 5 minutes. Drain and set aside." page 112
"Blanching is a technique to partially cook food in boiling water for later completion in a dish" page 2
Cooking directions are given for the chicken and broccoli but nothing is ever said about what to do with the potatoes-
Would like to add that the author has been great about this issue and has given me the complete recipe and you can read the rest in the comment section
