What could be better than family and friends gathered around a table laden with laughter and good food? The Food Network's Cat Cora is the perfect companion in the kitchen to help create meals and memories to share and remember. With recipes inspired by Cat's Greek heritage and her roots in the American South, honed by her experiences in restaurants in France and California, Cat Cora's Kitchen shines with simplicity and flavor. Organized by menu, these dishes tempt palates with specialties such as freshly baked Spana-kopita, the traditional Greek favorite of spinach, dill, and feta in pastry, and savory chicken stew, redolent of wine, garlic, and cinnamon. Desserts are also not-to-be-missed, with treats such as the Orange-Scented Almond Cookies or an unusual rolled version of Baklava. The pantry offers basic recipes for homemade stock and a resource section gives suggestions for finding unusual ingredients. With gorgeous photographs throughout, these approachable, elegant dishes will leave everyone asking for the recipe.

All I can say, is that it was everything and more then I imagined.
So many cookbooks from well-known chefs are so complex or use ingredients only available in specialty stores if you could pronounce the names. This is a cookbook for the hobby chef. There is also warmth and humor in the book. Enjoy.
It's always tough to keep track of recipes that you want to make from each cookbook. Instead of trying to remember recipe names, or filling each book with sticky notes, make a personal "index" on a piece of paper and store it in the inside front cover. That way, when you're browsing through a cookbook you can write down the name and page number of a recipe that catches your eye, and you can easily refer back to your index instead of flipping through the book to find it.
