Deb Perelman loves to cook. She isn't a chef or a restaurant owner - she's never even waitressed. Cooking in her tiny Manhattan kitchen was, at least at first, for special occasions - and, too often, an unnecessarily daunting venture. Deb found herself overwhelmed by the number of recipes available to her. Have you ever searched for the perfect birthday cake on Google? You'll get more than three million results. Where do you start? What if you pick a recipe that's downright bad?


Deb founded her award-winning blog, Smitten Kitchen, on the premise that cooking should be a pleasure, and that the results of your labor can - and should - be delicious... every time. Deb is a firm believer that there are no bad cooks, just bad recipes. She has dedicated herself to finding the best of the bets and adapting the recipes for the everyday cook - the person with little time to spare, little money to burn on unpronounceable ingredients, and little help in the kitchen.


And now, with the same warmth, candor, and can-do spirit her blog is known for, Deb presents her first cookbook: more than 100 recipes - almost entirely new, plus a few favorites from the site - all gorgeously illustrated with hundreds of her beautiful color photographs.


The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is all about approachable, uncompromised home cooking. Here you'll find better uses for your favorite vegetables: asparagus blanketing a pizza; ratatouille dressing up a sandwich; cauliflower masquerading as pesto. These are the recipes you'll bookmark and use so often they become your own, recipes you'll slip to a friends who wants to impress her new in-laws, and recipes with simple ingredients that yielding amazing results in a minimum amount of time. Deb tells you her favorite summer cocktail; how to lose your fear of making pizzas, pies or brunch for a crowd; and the essential items you need for your own kitchen. From salsas to slaws that make perfect side dishes (or a full meal) to savory tarts and galettes; from Mushroom Bourguignon to Chocolate Hazelnut Crepe Cake, Deb knows just the thing for a Tuesday night, or your most special occasion.
