At My Table is the third book of recipes written by Rasheeda Hasan for home cooks in everyday language using family proportion and easy ways to do it in their home kitchens. This new book is a compilation of recipes for vegetarians, vegans, and non-vegetarians alike. Using the techniques, they can make the dish by adjusting the ingredients to suit their persuasion. All I can say is that this book is amazing!!! It is midday, and I am sitting here drooling over the recipes in this cookbook. She did it all. Besides mouthwatering recipes, she gave a description/history of many of the dishes, which makes it so much more interesting than just reading a recipe and trying it out. Shall I say it gives new meaning to "food for thought?"
Being a novice in cooking, I never realized just how important "technique" is. From this book, I learned that techniques could make or break a dish, not to make global infusion synch. This book contains proper methods to move your dish from just "ok." to "Wow! That is great."
What captured my attention was the serving suggestions (such as what to serve with your dish and anecdotes such as using salt with great care if you were serving bread with it rather than rice) and taking the experience to another level. Therefore, these suggestions are a welcome addition to any recipe and less stress in meal planning.
The recipes are clear and concise with an interesting variety. You can give your friends and family some new and very delicious dishes and change "not that again" to "let's have that again" with a bonus that the guests will be asking you for your recipes.
