From Michael Chiarello, author of The Tra Vigne Cookbook, comes a collection of recipes on his favorite subject-and the favorite subject of home cooks everywhere-preparing meals for family and friends. These treasured recipes marry the rich traditions of his Italian culinary heritage with the casual style and fresh flavors of the Wine Country. Each outhwatering dish-such as Tuscan Shrimp with White Beans, Chicken with Rosemary and Lemon Salt, and Italian Fruit Salad with Sta Bene Honey Zabaglione-is sophisticated, yet simple to prepare.
Gorgeous color images by award-winning photographer Deborah Jones show dishes that look too good to be this easy! The companion volume to his new 26-part series on public television, Michael Chiarello's Casual Cooking is perfect for stress-free weekday meals and spontaneous gatherings of friends and family. It doesn't get any better than this.
Michael Chiarello is the best-selling author of The Tra Vigne Cookbook, the cookbook of one of the most popular restaurants in Napa Valley, which he co-founded, and Flavored Oils and Flavored Vinegars. In addition to his new TV series, being carried on 150 public television affiliates nationwide, he is the host of radio's Another Bite, syndicated to 400 stations, and creator of NapaStyle gourmet foods. He lives in Napa Valley.
Easy Entertaining, Michael Chiarello's Food Network show is one of my favorites. His relaxed style, informative instruction on preparing a recipe and an entire meal are very helpful. Casual Cooking has the same features and wonderful photos, you eat with your eyes first. I enjoy learning something new each time I read, and try a recipe. Having ideas for what I should stock in my pantry make preparing dinner an organized and enjoyable process.
Foods prepared as I remember my Grandmother making are described in just enough detail to make these great dishes often. Michael uses fresh ingredients that are readily available to make it a pleasure to serve to any special occasions.
This is a great addition to our cook book library. Michael's recipies are inspired.

For your next get-together, serve a simple cheese board instead of fussy hors d'oeuvres that just keep you tethered to the kitchen. Go to your local cheese shop or market and select a few interesting cheeses from different regions (France, Spain, England, or locally produced) and different origins (sheep's milk, cow's milk, or goat's milk). Set out with little cards identifying each cheese, and serve grapes and crackers for your guests to enjoy with the cheese.
