Chef David Tanis will appear at Princeton Public Library on Thursday, November 12, at 7 p.m., to discuss his new cookbook One Good Dish (Artisan $25.95). Offering 100 one-dish recipes that epitomize his no-fuss approach to comfort food, One Good Dish is the chef’s first non-menu cookbook.
According to a starred review in Publishers Weekly, David Tanis “turns his focus to an eclectic array of simple, casual meals that satisfy and are appropriate to be eaten at any time of day. Tanis’s whimsy runs from bread, snacks, and condiments to vegetables, griddled foods, desserts, and more …. His chapter titled ‘Eating with a Spoon’ centers on pleasures in a bowl and contains a full-bodied, save-your-life garlic soup, rice porridge with salted egg, yellow risotto with saffron and lemon, and clams in the shell with fennel and parsley …. Accompanied by numerous full-color photographs, the recipes in this collection are suitable for solo dining or entertaining guests and are certain to please.” more
