“Filled with Catskills farmscapes, it’ll make any cook with a hankering for the country happy. . . . These recipes are company-worthy and easy to boot” (Daily News, New York). A Greenwich Village landmark, Allysa Torey’s Magnolia Bakery is the place to get all-American sweet treats. But you can’t live on cupcakes alone—so when Allysa’s at her country house in upstate New York, she turns to locally grown, seasonal ingredients to put together family-friendly meals packed with flavor and old-fashioned comfort food appeal. Now, in this full-color cookbook, she shares more than ninety of her favorite everyday recipes—and invites you to experience the delights of country living. Here are new twists on traditional American favorites such as Chicken and Vegetable Stew with Cream Cheese Herb Crust, Sweet Potato Casserole with Almond-Streusel Topping, and Yellow Split Pea Soup with Smoked Ham Hock. There’s an enticing variety of starters, from Crab and Crayfish Cakes with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce to Yellow Beet, Walnut, and Gorgonzola Salad. For dinner, there are quick and flavorful weeknight recipes such as Lemon-Tarragon Chicken and Grilled Salmon with Corn and Cherry Tomato Salad—and more elaborate dishes for entertaining, like Mustard Herb Pork Loin Roast with Cornbread Apple-Pecan Dressing and Cider Gravy. And since no Magnolia cookbook would be complete without desserts, Allysa serves up two dozen of her favorites—in a cookbook that’s “a tasty blend of nostalgia and innovation” (Publishers Weekly).
