Overview

At Home in the Kitchen is a fresh, new approach to cooking. Supported by an interactive Web site, the book is the first of what is sure to be a popular new way of helping busy working women, particularly executives -- who have very little time available for planning and executing complicated, exotic dishes -- to prepare excellent meals every day. Having designed the book to take the mystique out of cooking, Jorj Morgan encourages readers to embrace cooking at home as a form of personal and group entertainment. Among the many helpful elements that make At Home in the Kitchen a uniquely helpful cookbook are:
-- Instructions on kitchen organization
-- More than 230 easy, fun, and delicious recipes
-- An easy-to-read, step-by-step format, with no more than ten steps per recipe
-- Recipes sorted by cooking techniques, from easiest to more elaborate
-- Organized into foods the reader could eat in a restaurant
-- Many tips, including definitions of terms, cooking methods, tips on substituting ingredients, and dish presentation
-- Three indexes -- food groups, ingredients, and cooking techniques
