Everyday Dorie

The latest gift from the incomparable Dorie Greenspan is Everyday Dorie: The Way I Cook which shares 175 recipes that are her favorites and will undoubtedly become ours as well. Dorie is touring in support of this title and her schedule is shared on our calendar and is one of our upcoming Eat Your Book Cookbook Club titles.


Dorie is classified by many, including myself, as a cookbook author that can be trusted for their expertise and knowledge. Buying one of her cookbooks is a given as her recipes are tested, they work and her books are beautiful. She could sell a book on 100 ways to boil water and I would have to have it.

About Everyday Dorie, she states that "the recipes, most of which are simple, none of which needs skills beyond basic, turn out food that's comforting, satisfying and inviting". I would add impressive to that statement. These dishes are "Dorie recipes" which translates that each contains a simple surprise that transforms a dish to extraordinary status. The humble chicken thigh is ready for entertaining with the addition of Thai sweet chili sauce or a coffee cake is leveled up with coffee and five-spice powder. 

As soon as I hit publish on this promotion, I'm headed to the store for chicken thighs to make her Sweet chili chicken thighs for tomorrow's dinner or maybe I'll make the Lightning-fast tahni pork - I can't decide both photos and recipes look so tempting and jump off the page. Updated photo to right. 

Dorie's books are those cookbooks that will be handed down generation to generation. They appeal to old-school and modern cooks alike as they offer something new and exciting without the need for new gadgets or exotic ingredients.
