Simple Summer:
A recipe for cooking and entertaining with ease

Summer is when we relax and enjoy time — and a cold drink — with good friends, while bright-tasting, farm-fresh produce does all the hard work in the kitchen. Simple Summer collects 40 of my favorite simple, delicious recipes with stories, and music and drink recommendations for easy entertaining.

Each recipe comes with photos and easy tips to get them right the first time. The tips come from questions asked by the audiences at my live, weekly cooking demos, like “how do I cut corn off the cob”, or “what is the right tool for cutting quesadillas” (a pizza cutter. You’ll never go back!).

People are talking:

“Simple Summer” may well be the first book I’ve reviewed that had cooking stains on it before I’d even finished it. Making the most of farm-fresh produce, he has a knack for creating beautiful dishes that sparkle with invention but let the natural flavors of the vegetables shine through.” Karen Lyon, The Literary Hill

“This wonderful book has some fabulous recipes, and I plan to cook my way through it.” Sheilah Kaufman, The Town Courier

“This book is a testament of the love of good food, good friends, and a passion for the culinary life! I truly think this book belongs on the shelves of both the novice and the expert.” Jonathan Schenck, Whole Foods.
