Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chocolate chip cookies

    • rosten on February 22, 2019

      Made three batches of these. Nailing the baking time seems very important. Two batches turned out fine - they are cookies! One batch was insanely, addictively good.

  • Roasted carrots with burrata and salsa rustica

    • puddlemere on January 04, 2019

      I didn't care for this much, but I suspect my burrata had gone off and was giving everything an off flavor. Regardless, it still seemed to need more acidity and salt, even though I sprinkled with Maldon. I also thought the raw shallot flavor was too strong.

  • Vermicelli noodles with lemongrass pork meatballs

    • puddlemere on January 31, 2019

      Delicious. I've made similar recipes before, but usually with rice rather than rice noodles. I used some pad Thai style ready-to-eat rice noodles that I had in the pantry rather than vermicelli. I love the combo of the meatballs with the herbs and vegetables, but the real stars of this recipe are the fried shallots and the nuoc cham dressing. Will definitely make again.

  • Beef-and-pork meatballs in tomato sauce

    • puddlemere on January 13, 2019

      Pretty standard, but still good and based on mostly pantry ingredients. I do tend to like recipes where the meatballs are just poached in the sauce rather than fried or broiled first. These would probably be good with ground turkey too. I used a jarred sauce and served with spaghetti.

Simple, stunning recipes for home cooks, from the writer of the "Repertoire" column for the San Francisco Chronicle

Home cooks don't need dozens of cookbooks or hundreds of recipes. They just need one good book, with about 75 trustworthy, versatile, and above all, delicious recipes that can stand alone or be mixed-and-matched into extraordinary meals.

That's what Repertoire is: Real recipes, from real life, that really work.

After nearly two decades in the kitchen and writing about food, this is the way San Francisco Chronicle writer Jessica Battilana really cooks at home. These are her best recipes, the ones she relies on the most--for a quick weeknight supper, a special dinner party, when a friend drops by for a drink and a snack, for the chocolate cake that never fails. The knowledge, freedom, and flexibility that comes from cooking these recipes is all you really need in the kitchen.

With a salad for every season, pantry pastas, many meatballs, chewy cookies, and more, Repertoire puts the perfect dish for every occasion within reach.
