by Esther Deutsch
What better source for fast, fabulous, kosher cuisine – that looks good enough to eat — than a food stylist, columnist, and recipe developer. CHIC Made Simple, by Esther Deutsch successfully conveys the author's cooking philosophy: if your food looks irresistible - it tastes as such. Her recipes are designed to look – and taste – like gourmet cuisine.
If delicious reading alone isn't enough to get you off the couch and into the kitchen, Esther's ardor for impeccable no-fuss presentation will surely inspire you to recreate these mouthwatering dishes. Dishes like Spiced Mocha Mousse with Viennese Crunch, Savory Club Steak with Caramelized Onions,, Coconut Tilapia with Apricot Teriyaki Sauce, Chicken Fire Poppers, Filet Mignon au Poivre, Tropical Kani Salad with Sriracha Lime Dressing, and many more that you and your family and friends will declare the best you've ever had.
With over 185 recipes, accompanied by beautiful colored photographs (and food styling by the author herself), this cookbook will appeal to everyone: the novice, the busy cook and the more accomplished cook.
Esther Deutsch is a self-taught cook who has never taken a single culinary class. She is a food editor of AMI magazine, and resides in New York with her husband and children. Her debut cookbook, CHIC Made Simple, features her most celebrated recipes, as well as many that have never before been published.
