The Splendid Table’s How to Eat Weekends shows the home cook how to enjoy the journey and the discovery of cooking rather than just the destination. With dozens of new recipes that include iconic ethnic dishes and classic Americana, this new collection is sure to have something for everyone at the weekend table. Each dish, whether a Renaissance-style Italian feast, or a Chinese Celebration, starts with the history of the meal, notes on the unique dining rituals of each culture, a cooking schedule, helpful culinary tools and techniques, and a guide to shopping in the respective ethnic market.
Weekend eating is more than just sustenance—it’s a philosophy. It’s about taking the time to make things from scratch because they taste better than anything found on a supermarket shelf, or spending a lazy afternoon in a new neighborhood where maybe you don’t speak the language, exploring new markets and restaurants. That philosophy is at the heart of The Splendid Table’s How to Eat Weekends, and will truly inspire adventurous cooks to produce far more than just another weekend meal.
