I’ve mentioned before that I love simple recipes. Simple 2 contains almost 200 recipes that are nothing but. Unlike the cookbook Simple Desserts I shared last week, this cookbook contains appetizers, meals and desserts.

Chapters include:

  • Hors D’Oeuvres
  • Appetizers
  • Entrees
  • Desserts

This cookbook would be perfect for folks learning how to cook, as well as folks that appreciate simple recipes and want to expand their menu.

200 more of the easiest recipes in the world — each with less than 6 ingredients, a few steps, and most just 1 hour from prep to table — are lavishly illustrated with 1,000 mouthwatering photographs making mealtime, snack time or any time quick, tasty, and simple!

What’s for dinner? Simple 2–which Epicurious calls an “ultra-paired down, visually-instructive cookbook”–has the answer. With its clean design, large type, straightforward photos, and handy icons, you can have a delicious meal on the table in minutes.

Through combinations of basic flavors and fresh ingredients, chef, food photographer, and cookbook author Jean-François Mallet helps anyone, the novice and gourmand alike, prepare tasty time-saving meals. His “at-a-glance” approach will change your view of cooking.

In a few short steps, you’ll find yourself able to make dishes as varied as Easy Cassoulet, Chinese Pork Ribs, and Glazed Lemon Pound Cake. There’s a recipe for every occasion and season, whether it’s a quick appetizer, hearty soup, cheesy pizza, or rich dessert. Want something a little different? Mallet’s training as a French chef is evident in his more unusual recipes, such as Grand Cheese Soufflé and Squid Ink Paella.

Jean-François Mallet, a trained professional chef as well as a talented photographer, has worked with some of the biggest names in cooking, including Joel Robuchon, Michel Kenever, and Michel Rostang. His work has appeared in magazines including Saveur, Elle, and Gourmet, and he is the author of more than two dozen cookbooks and the international bestselling Simplissime series.
