"Suzanne has always been one of my favorite cooks because she gets
what makes home cooking so great--not fancy tools or exotic
ingredients, but just the act of being in the kitchen, cooking for
those she cares about, taking good ingredients and letting them
shine. I love this book because it's exactly how I cook--and how I
love to eat."
-Mark Bittman, author of How to Cook Everything
"I just love this book. It's perfect for the way we eat
now: simple food, big platters, big flavours. The most useful
cookbook I've seen in a long time."
-Diana Henry, author of Simple: Effortless Food, Big Flavours " In Graze, Suzanne dreams up lush as well as simple concoctions from everyday ingredients, taking full advantage of her pantry, fridge, and freezer. Graze is a lesson in shopping as well as cooking. Using the best that markets have to offer and with minimal effort, Suzanne dazzles us with endless combinations and stunning pictures, creating interesting and delectable small plates."
