This is Ellen Helman's original cookbook. Her philosophy is that gourmet food need not be elaborate and difficult to make, but fresh, flavorful, and delicious. The recipes reflect this "uncommonly" simply approach. With her easy-to-follow directions, she presents imaginative, innovative ways of saucing and seasoning foods geared to the busy working world. Here is a collection of more than 300 dishes that will romance your senses and elevate home cooking to new heights.
