An indispensable new cookbook from James Beard Award-winning food writer Michael Ruhlman

From Scratch looks at 10 favorite meals, including roast
chicken, the perfect omelet, and paella-and then, through 175 recipes,
explores myriad alternate pathways that the kitchen invites. A delicious
lasagna can be ready in about an hour, or you could turn it into a
project: try making and adding some homemade sausage. Explore the limits
of from-scratch cooking: make your own pasta, grow your own tomatoes,
and make your own homemade mozzarella and ricotta. Ruhlman tells you

There are easy and more complex versions for most dishes,
vegetarian options, side dishes, sub-dishes, and strategies for
leftovers. Ruhlman reflects on the ways that cooking from scratch brings
people together, how it can calm the nerves and focus the mind, and how
it nourishes us, body and soul.
