With Good Food, Good Life: 130 Recipes You'll Love to Cook and Eat celebrity chef Curtis Stone hopes to make home-cooked meals less of a chore and more of a delicious adventure. This is the chef's sixth cookbook and showcases his favorite dishes for every meal of the day.
Must-try recipes include Pork Burger with Spicy Ginger Pickles, Porcini-Braised Beef with Horseradish Mascarpone, Zucchini Enchiladas with Habanero Salsa, Cherry-Amaretto Lattice Pie, Crêpes with Homemade Ricotta and Maple-Kumquat Syrup, Popcorn with Bacon and Parmesan, and Bruschetta with Spring Pea Pesto and Burrata.
"I've pulled together this collection because I’ve always been a huge believer that good food and a good life are deeply and intrinsically intertwined. For me it’s not just the eating of food (though I'll be the first to admit I’m a greedy little monster), but I also really savour the entire experience that encircles food," the chef says.
