    Broiled Squab with Chinese seasoning salt p. 74 served with spinach and watercress in cream p.75 I have made this a couple of times now. Once with a boneless chicken breast instead of squab. The flavors were subtle and delicious and the whole meal came together in under 60 minutes as promised. The sichuan pepper seasoning for the squab and the nutmeg in the spinach were surprisingly - and unexpectedly complementary. These are recipes I will definitely be making again. Have not had creamed watercress before, but really enjoyed it. One thing - be careful when toasting the sichuan peppercorns as they can scorch very easily. I toasted mine in the lid/skillet of my small le crueset and burned the first batch. The second time, I removed them from the heat at the first sign that the peppercorns were started to smell and give off 'smoke'.

    The Chicken Scarpariello is my favorite recipe from this book. I use his basic recipe for rice pilaf all the time.
