Chef Baldwin collaborates with food writer Kaminsky (Seven Fires) to create a collection focusing on a few cardinal foods or techniques, as well as variations on those themes. The meat and poultry entrees, for instance, each include at least four to five distinct riffs on the initial recipe. What sets this book apart is the variety of the "starter" items and the wide-ranging options that follow, which go beyond simply varying condiments or flavors to create entirely different dishes. Large full-color photos accompany most recipes, which also feature a headnote with additional suggestions and tips. Many recipes involve separately prepared components.
VERDICT This collection of varied and delicious suggestions for dressing up basic key recipes is recommended for home cooks looking to add some flair to their meals.
