Drawn from the days when author Donald Lewis watched his grandmother churn butter and gather fresh eggs to use in family meals, these country dishes have a contemporary flair that’s perfect for even the most elegant brunch or dinner party. You’ll find recipes for such classic treats as Creamy Onion Soup, Squash Bisque, Creole Seafood Gumbo, Baked Chicken Breasts with Roast Garlic Sauce, Velvet Almond Fudge Cake, Lemon Date Squares, and Apple Spice Muffins. There’s also a useful conversion chart for British and American measures and temperatures, a handy list of ingredient substitutions, a recipe for a Master Mix” that can be used for a range of baked goods, and general herb suggestions for flavoring foods to perfection. This is a charming cookbook that skillfully combines rural country cooking with modern culinary style.
