I really love cooking, but often don't have so much time or energy at the end of a long day to put a hugely complicated meal together. This cook-book by renowned chef Alice Waters goes over a number of great, and very simple, recipes to feed yourself well without having to follow a million and one different steps. The Art of Simple Food starts with staples of cooking, including stocking your own pantry such that you're well prepared for anything. Waters then covers the spectrum of basic meals, teaching you how to put together very simple, yet exceptional tasting dishes. She focusses on seasonal, ideally local, ingredients, and after picking up this book you'll be able to prepare yourself perfectly for great fall meals with market fresh produce and meats.
