About Tasty: Get Great Food on the Table Every Day

Publisher Web Link: http://www.houghtonmifflinbooks.com/

For the past twenty years, Roy Finamore has shaped America’s most popular cookbooks, publishing such influential authors as Martha Stewart, Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa), and Lee Bailey and working alongside chefs and other food authorities to help them streamline their recipes. Now, in Tasty, he shows you how to make the most of your time and have fun in the kitchen.

Tasty proves that a meal doesn’t need to be showoffy to be uncommonly good. When you serve food from this book, your family and friends will sit up and take notice, and you’ll be relaxed and smiling when you sit down at the table. Among the simple but exceptional dishes in Tasty:

  • Buttermilk Pancakes with Hazelnut Butter: breakfast with a minimum of effort; unbelievably light and fluffy.
  • Sicilian Spinach Pie: perfect for a lunch or picnic, with the easiest pastry you’ve ever made.
  • Fresh Pea Soup: with three common ingredients, it’s ready in five minutes.
  • Chicken Milanese: Crisp chicken and tart salad -- the kind of food you crave when it’s hot out.
  • Pork Roast with Fruit Stuffing: a fine company dish or Sunday supper.
  • Chinois Noodles: Asian-inspired and equally good warm or cold.
  • Chocolate Whipped Cream Cake: Whip cream, add eggs and a few dry ingredients, and you’ve got cake!

As Roy says in his introduction, “Good simple food is meant to be shared and enjoyed. Cook often.”

For more than 20 years, I’ve been an editor of cookbooks and lifestyle books. Among the award-winning and bestselling cookbook authors I’ve had the pleasure to publish are Martha Stewart, Ina Garten, Diana Kennedy, Jean Anderson, Anne Willan, Lee Bailey, Carole Walter, Tom Colicchio, Bobby Flay, and Gale Gand.

My lifestyle books include the legendary International Style Library, from the team headed by Suzanne Slesin, the exquisite books of Tim Street-Porter, landmark books from Chris Madden, the iconoclastic work of Madderlake, and the small jewels of Abbie Zabar.

As a stylist, I’ve directed shoots for books as varied as Jacques Pepin Fast Food My Way, Graceland’s Table, Anne Willan’s From My Chateau Kitchen, The Cheese Plate, Butter Sugar Flour Eggs, Gulf Coast Kitchens, andA Place for Everything. Click on the Gallery for images.

My first cookbook, One Potato Two Potato, was a main selection of The Good Cook, and it led to travels across the country teaching cooking classes and unlocking the secrets of the potato. Click on Books to find out more about the book that Publisher’s Weekly called “an impressive and wide-ranging potato bible.” My book Tasty was published by Houghton Mifflin in April 2006, and am currently working with Rick Moonen on Fish without a Doubt.
