A pleasant surprise!,
This review is from: The Best Casserole Cookbook Ever (Paperback)
I ordered 'The Best Casserole Cookbook Ever' with a Le Creuset Cast Iron Round Casserole, Cerise, 24 cm hopping for inspiration to use it. The book was a nice surprise, and not quite what I was expecting. Beatrice Ojakangas takes the definition of 'casserole' as far as possible in over 500 recipes, grouped in 17 chapters, from No-Knead Breads, Breakfast & Brunch Casseroles to different Meat, Fish, Grain, Pasta or Vegetarian ones, and finishes with a full chapter of Desserts. I think the way recipes are organized is very good, enhancing options for a certain ingredient you may want to use or ideas for a special occasion (a meal for kids, for a crowd or for 2). Not all recipes come with a photo - if you're expecting many photos or every recipe pictured then this book may not be what you're looking for. It doesn't matter to me, and I find it perfectly acceptable in a book that offers such a large number of recipes.
Polenta Spoon Bread, Baked Cinnamon-Maple French Toast, Chicken with Forty CLoves of Garlic, Baked Eggs with Artichokes and Parmesan or Peach Buckle are some of the delicious recipes in Beatrice Ojakangas' book.
