Good Taste: Simple, Delicious Recipes for Family and Friends by Jane Green

 Hardcover, 192 pages
Published October 4th 2016 by NAL
A lush and gorgeous guide to all things food and entertaining from New York Times bestselling author Jane Green.
Jane Green’s life has always revolved around her kitchen...

... from inviting over friends for an impromptu brunch; to wowing guests with delicious new recipes; to making sure her ever-on-the-move family makes time to sit down together. For Jane, food is enjoyable because of the people surrounding it and the pleasures of hosting and nourishing those she cares about, body and soul.

Now, Jane opens wide the doors of her stunning home to share tips on entertaining, ideas for making any gathering a cozy yet classy affair, and some of her favorite dishes, ranging from tempting hors d’oeuvres like Sweet Corn and Chili Soup, to mouthwatering one-pot mains like Slow-Braised Onion Chicken, to sinfully satisfying desserts like Warm Chocolate and Banana Cake.

This book is Jane’s perfect recipe for making a wonderful life complete with friends, loving family, and moments filled with good food, good times, and, of course,
 Good Taste. 

My Thoughts…

I am not a fan of “celebrity” cookbooks as I find they usually call for ingredients that are not easily found or affordable for the “normal” person yet with Jane Green’s Good Taste Cookbook I found myself wanting and being able to cook every recipe.    My family, especially my children, are very picky and there were so many recipes that they enjoyed or would enjoy when I finally tried them out. 

While checking out the recipes I felt like I was getting a glimpse into Jane Green’s life.   The stories between the recipes shared the why’s of the recipes.   The reasoning behind why she is sharing the recipes that she is. 

The step by step directions showed how meticulous she is.   They were easy to follow and made total sense.   Even the non-cooker/baker will find recipes in this book that will temp them to try their hand at a new meal idea.       This book is perfect for the experienced chef/baker or the stay at home cooking for the family cook.  

Check out Good Taste.    There is a recipe in here for everyone.

  1. I just enjoyed a lunch with Jane Green and the caterers prepared all dishes from GOOD TASTE for the meal. Reading With Robin puts on the best author events - we're lucky to have her in RI.
