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 sauted, 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.
