From the Inside Flap:

Award-winning cookbook author Lee Clayton Roper presents Fresh Tastes, a follow-up to her critically acclaimed A Well-Seasoned Kitchen. Lee has gathered a unique collection of more than 170 recipes that showcase how fresh ingredients and new ideas can combine to deliver memorable meals. From delectable appetizers and creative salads to impressive main courses and luscious desserts, Lee serves up extraordinarily flavorful dishes guaranteed to please all palates. Fans of A Well-Seasoned Kitchen will recall that Lee's love of cooking and entertaining was first inspired by her mother Sally Clayton. In Fresh Tastes, the motivation to create exciting new dishes and flavor profiles comes from her own kitchen influenced by people and places that have enriched her life. This cookbook epitomizes her culinary tastes, balancing an innovative approach with uncomplicated preparation techniques. Sophisticated in flavor and beautiful to present, the recipes in Fresh Tastes are prepared with the best, readily available ingredients designed to maximize flavor. Drawing from her decades of experience, Lee delivers helpful advice on what is best for the dish, the flavor and the cook, taking into account such essential variables as seasonality and availability. Sometimes a can of organic tomatoes adds more flavor than an out-of-season fresh one. Recipes included in Fresh Tastes were tested by a multitude of volunteers from across the country with varying levels of expertise, appliances and even at different altitudes. Lee takes the "complicated" out of timeless classics and presents them with a fresh, innovative twist. Among the 173 easy-to-follow recipes and 83 color photographs that bring them to life are inventive presentations for Coq au Vin and Bouillabaisse designed to deliver the "wow" factor. 42 indispensable detailed cooking tips (many with accompanying photos) empower readers to expand their culinary horizons with unique and creative ways to cook and entertain.
