Stonewall Kitchen Favorites: Delicious Recipes to Share with Family and Friends Every Day

Jonathan King, Author, Kathy Gunst, Author, Jim Stott, Author , foreword by Ina Garten. Clarkson Potter $32.50 (288p) ISBN 978-0-307-33681-1

Gourmet food purveyors King and Stott may have made a name for themselves with preserves and condiments, but with this third cookbook they prove they can also handle dishes as wide-ranging as Huevos Rancheros and Rack of Lamb. The well-rounded collection features hearty American fare with a modern flair; a typical recipe is Three Moms' Meatloaf, which calls for fresh parsley, thyme and rosemary, and includes tomato paste (no ketchup). Above all, the authors are not bound to tradition. Recipe introductions often clue readers in to the rationale behind a recipe ("Where is it written that all croutons must be made from leftover bread? Why not experiment with squares of polenta?") and "favorite variations" sections offer modifications to every recipe. Although it's initially strange that there's no appetizer chapter—considering the subtitle's emphasis on entertaining—many of the dishes in the "Seafood and Fish" and "Pasta, Potatoes, Bread" chapters would make pleasing hors d'oeuvres (e.g., Scallop "Chips," Grown-Up Potato Puffs, Tuna Tartare on Cucumber Rounds). This laid-back book deserves a warm reception from anyone who likes their food easy and delicious. 150 full-color photos. (Aug.)
