In the intervening two decades, he has expanded his knowledge and wisdom and has been kind enough to share them both with home cooks. Make no mistake about the simplicity of Kitchen Simple; it is the distillation of a career's worth of kitchen insights that will make you a better cook--in less than 30 minutes. It also features Jim's gorgeous photographs, which serve as beautiful reminders that it's not necessary to sacrifice flavor or elegance because you're short on time."

        Peterson, winner of three James Beard awards, is the author of Cooking, Meat: A Kitchen Education, and Baking, among others. His latest is for hardworking cooks who want to get out of the kitchen in under 30 minutes (some recipes cook for longer than 30 minutes). Peterson uses ingredients that can be found at many supermarkets in such recipes as Leek and Potato Soup (a simple combination of potatoes, leeks, milk, and optional heavy cream), Red Wine Pot Roast, and Fresh Fruit Tart (a baked tart shell topped with lime curd and raspberries or strawberries).
