Enhanced with beautiful full-color photographs, Iowa Farms, California Kitchens highlights a lifetime of enduring, memorable recipes from life in 1960s Iowa where freshness and farm-to-table were assumed, to glamorous Hollywood celebrations in the 2000s where less than stellar cooking could cause you to miss out on a job or even lose your kid’s place in private school. The perfect eCookbook for anyone in the market for reliably satisfying family recipes and dinner party dishes designed to dazzle. All recipes are served up with clear, straightforward instructions. You'll learn how to create savory farmers-market Sautéed Vegetables with Goat Cheese and Parmigiano-Reggiano, tried and true casseroles for busy families like Turkey Tetrazzini, soul satisfying soups like Potato Cheddar and a bountiful collection of luscious desserts including Snickerdoodles, Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake and Fresh Strawberry Pie.
Although most of the recipes in the book call for generic ingredients, we’ve included a Where to Find section to guide you to exceptional resources for quality, sometimes hard-to-find items like earthy black walnuts, prosciutto from acorn-fed pigs and a variety of vanilla beans. At the end you’ll also find a Measurement Equivalent section to help you adjust the size of a recipe, an alphabetical Index of Recipes, a Have a Read, Have a Listen guide to resources that we rely on, an Ingredient Guide and a Substitutions page to assist you in substituting a similar ingredient for one that you don’t have access to.
