Description for THE FRUGAL GOURMET COOKS WITH WINE by Jeff Smith:

Jeff Smith, host of the nationally successful television series "The Frugal Gourmet", and author of the best-selling companion cookbook of the same name---more than 700,000 hardcover copies in print and a year on the "New York Times" best-seller list---feels that all good cooks should be versed in the excitement and possibilities of wine. For Jeff, wine occupies a special place on his pantry shelf. This cookbook, the companion to his completely new 26-part television series, "The Frugal Gourmet Cooks with Wine", proves that learning about wine need not be daunting.

He believes wine is a food, not a romanticized beverage reserved exclusively for high-falutin' occasions. As as a familiar ingredient, wine will help you cook more creatively, cut down on your desire for salt, make an everyday meal more interesting, and it will stimulate your sense of taste. All of these benefits can be attained without leaving any alcohol in the food because it evaporates during cooking. What remains is flavor, health, and elegance.

THE FRUGAL GOURMET COOKS WITH WINE features more than 300 recipes, not all of which use wine, ranging from appetizers such as Fried Red Pepper Strips and English Potted Cheese to a mouthwatering array of soups, including a rich minestrone. It provides delectable, easy-to-make main courses for all occasions and life-styles---try Leg Of Lamb in Balsamic Vinegar, Rabbit in Green Peppercorns and Wine Sauce, Scallops in Pesto, or Vegetable-Stuffed Spinach Crepes. The book also contains many light desserts, Lemon Champagne Ice and Pears Poached in Port among them. You'll also find lots of spectacular dishes selected from international cuisines and valuable suggestions for people on special diets.

THE FRUGAL GOURMET COOKS WITH WINE is a cookbook that offers a deep understanding of food and the pleasures wine can add to your table. Jeff Smith, America's most beloved cooking teacher, strips away the mystery and pretension that so often prevent us from enjoying wine. He brings all the joys wine can bring into the easy, inexpensive reach of all of us.
