I've had a lot of cookbooks in my lifetime, yet not many have excited me as much as Dinner by Melissa Clark. I would make most of these recipes in this thick volume. Last night I made the Farro Salad featured on page 284 (this is a serious cookbook, coming in at 385 pages full of recipes) and was pleasantly surprised at the refreshing flavors I never would have imagined on my own.
This book is divided into sections:
Meat: Pork, Beef, Lamb, Duck & Turkey
Fish & Seafood
Pasta & Noodles (swoon!)
Beans, Legumes & Vegetable Dinners
Rice, Farro, Quinoa and other Grains
Pizzas & Pies
Salads that Mean It
Dips, Spreads, and Go-Withs
This is the only cookbook you need to buy this year. Beautiful pictures and incredible delights throughout. I can't wait to create more healthy meals from this book.
