Ten by Sheila Lukins

Sheila Lukins, co-author of the Silver Palate cookbooks,
has always been about the foods we love/crave. Gooey, rich, meaty, eggy, crispy, crunchy, silky....whatever it is that floats any of our individual boats.

So in her new book, Ten: all the food we love..., she has pinpointed the foods (or dishes) that most of us love/crave and offers 10 recipes for each of them.

For example, here are a couple of categories (and the recipes I want to make) that had me at hello:
  • Mashed Potatoes (wasabi mashed, lemon-dill parsnip mash)
  • Tomatoes (lush tomatoes and avocados, roasted tiny red and yellow tomatoes)
  • Corn (grilled corn with chipotle butter, farmers' market corn salad)
  • Stews (chicken tagine, seven-vegetable couscous)
  • Barbecued Ribs (maple bourbon country ribs, korean beef short ribs)
Well, you get the point.
