In this follow-up to his beloved first book, Twelve Recipes, Chez Panisse chef Cal Peternell once again creates an indispensable resource for home cooks that’s destined to become lovingly dog-eared and sauce-splattered. This time, Peternell lays out everything you’ll need to cook for a crowd: holiday dinners, family gatherings, big dinner parties, or a special dinner for two. The delicious, approachable recipes (think Savory Tart with Onions, Olive, and Anchovies and Lasagna Bolognese) are accompanied by charming color photos and drawings.
