Description

Some fruits are at their best when eaten fresh, while others reveal their truest and most delicious flavor when cooked. Understanding how to enjoy fruit at its peak of flavor--whether it's lightly sautéed, poached, baked, braised, or roasted--is the key, and this cookbook for home cooks shows you how.

Simple Fruit inspires home cooks to explore and enhance the flavors of fruit throughout the year. Each recipe applies a cooking technique that wakes the senses with the distinct flavor characteristics of a fruit. Simple Fruit is a fresh way to approach fruit.
