Perhaps more responsible than anyone for the revolution in the way we eat, cook, and think about food, Alice Waters has “single-handedly chang[ed] the American palate” according to the New York Times. Her simple but inventive dishes focus on a passion for flavor and a reverence for locally produced, seasonal foods.

With an essential repertoire of timeless, approachable recipes chosen to enhance and showcase great ingredients, The Art of Simple Food is an indispensable resource for home cooks. Here you will find Alice’s philosophy on everything from stocking your kitchen, to mastering fundamentals and preparing delicious, seasonal inspired meals all year long. Always true to her philosophy that a perfect meal is one that’s balanced in texture, color, and flavor, Waters helps us embrace the seasons’ bounty and make the best choices when selecting ingredients. Fill your market basket with pristine produce, healthful grains, and responsibly raised meat, poultry, and seafood, then embark on a voyage of culinary rediscovery that reminds us that the most gratifying dish is often the least complex.

    是食譜,但不只是告訴你烹調物品與步驟的單調烹飪書。
    創造美食的關鍵在於細緻烹調手法與對理解食材本身,本書以簡單不贅述的方式深入淺出帶給烹飪者足夠知識又不過度追求,放在能夠隨手翻越的地方,讓自己在除了烹飪之外的時間,也可以對食材有新的想像。

    別被後半本的純文字食譜給騙了,前面十九章的做菜課題與基本食譜是本書的精華。前面的部分非常的棒,介紹了最基礎的西洋料理手法。我最愛那種由基礎教起,而且把細節都展示出來的,不是單單就說怎樣怎樣做而已,還告訴你為什麼要這樣做。

    實用卻可讀性高的一本美食指南。看了會讓人燃起想下廚的動力!
    很喜歡Alice Waters的美食概念,包括了使用當季食材、
    購買當地小農生產的產品、簡單烹調!
    料理是一種信念,裡面寄托了主廚的美食哲學!

    和Julia child一樣,Alice Waters投注了一生的熱情在食物與烹飪上,Waters特別提倡使用在地、有機的食材來做菜,才能吃的健康,書中介紹了西式料理的基礎烹飪手法,然後還附上一些富含變化的食譜,對於有志練習西式烹飪的人來說參考價值頗高,很多食譜也是非常吸引人,雖然有些食材可能本地無法取得,不過發揮一些創意應該還是可以用很多台灣現有的食材來代替,只是書中的重量單位還滿微妙,會有不是整數的重量,我想應該是原文用「磅」來計算,在翻譯時就直接換算成接近的公克重了~看起來有些不太適應。其 ...(continue)

    和Julia child一樣,Alice Waters投注了一生的熱情在食物與烹飪上,Waters特別提倡使用在地、有機的食材來做菜,才能吃的健康,書中介紹了西式料理的基礎烹飪手法,然後還附上一些富含變化的食譜,對於有志練習西式烹飪的人來說參考價值頗高,很多食譜也是非常吸引人,雖然有些食材可能本地無法取得,不過發揮一些創意應該還是可以用很多台灣現有的食材來代替,只是書中的重量單位還滿微妙,會有不是整數的重量,我想應該是原文用「磅」來計算,在翻譯時就直接換算成接近的公克重了~看起來有些不太適應。其實本書最大的感想是:雖然用橄欖油、蕃茄啥的是有比較健康啦~問題是橄欖油啦糖啦還是一樣半杯一杯的放這樣好嗎~

    整本像是文字食譜書,做菜時拿來做參考是不錯~
