Need a new menu for your Thanksgiving feast this year?
How about this one...
Truffled Turkey with White Wine Gravy
Wild Mushroom and Brioche Stuffing
Cranberry Apple Relish
Buttered Brussels Leaves
Spiced Pumpkin Creme Brûlée
If that sounds good to you, then run...don't walk to your nearest bookstore to buy Sunday Suppers by Karen Mordechai.
This unassuming cookbook is chock full of menus and recipes that take common dishes and give them just enough of a twist to make them fresh, while keeping their comforting familiarity. For instance, how about this breakfast:
Cream biscuits with jam butters
perfectly scrambled eggs
blood orange, halved
French press coffee
You'll be vastly popular among your friends if you invite them over for Football Sunday menu:
chili, Texas style
Thick-cut fries with pink peppercorn aioli
date cake with toffee sauce
Needless to say, I love the simplicity and quirky spins of this fresh and original cookbook. I can't wait to begin cooking from it. I bet you will, too.
Please note: I received a copy of Sunday Suppers from Blogging for Books in exchange for an unbiased review.
