About the Author
Sur La Table is the trusted authority when it comes to all things cooking related. It is the coauthor of six books, including ‘The Art and Soul of Baking’, which received the 2009 IACP Cookbook Award for Baking, was chosen by Gourmet magazine as a book club selection, and was nominated for 2009 baking book of the year by the James Beard Foundation. The original store and headquarters are in Seattle, Washington, and Sur La Table operates more than 80 stores nationwide as well as a Web site and catalog.

Review
Not always simple -- but comforting and heartwarming! Each recipe I have tried seems to require a trip to the grocery store or specialty store. However, if you are not obsessing over your cholesterol and you are missing full-flavored foods, this is a great little book! (It relies a lot on whole milk, creams and butter.) Chocaholics will love the dessert section where chocolate is an ingredient in almost everything, including bread pudding. I am eager to try the apple pie recipe where cream cheese is an ingredient of the crust. Then there is old-fashioned mac-and-cheese to remind you of why you liked it so much in the first place. I am always looking for really good soups and stews and I was not disappointed here. It contains only half a hundred recipes, but I have found more tasty and useful ones here than in many much larger cookbooks.
