Greenspan (Around My French Table), five-time James Beard Award winner, shares her favorite day-to-day recipes in this standout cookbook. Greenspan spends part of the year in France, and the Gallic influence is felt in such recipes as a roast chicken with a Dijon vinaigrette, and a salmon brandade. New York’s flavors show up in a smoked-salmon and cream-cheese–filled Lower East Side brunch tart; stuffed cabbage; and Basta Pasta potato salad, named for a Manhattan Italian restaurant. There are tastes of her travels as well, such as a Luang Prabang chicken-chili sandwich she ate nightly on a visit to Laos, and a bourbon roasted pork loin inspired by a trip to Kentucky. She offers a wide range of intriguing soups and salads, including a gingered turkey meatball soup; tomato and berry gazpacho; and cauliflower tabbouleh. Easy, delicious weeknight meals abound, such as a quick tahini pork tenderloin; umami-heavy burgers; and squid with miso-seasoned corn; Giverny tomatoes (prepared with lime zest, sugar, and flake salt) and a sheet-pan supper of balsamic chicken with baby potatoes. She includes such exceptional desserts as a molasses coffee cake and chocolate-covered chai tea bars. Whether readers are just discovering Greenspan or are part of her fan base, they will be thrilled with this. (Oct.)
