Justine Schofield’s choucroute with seafood
Justine Scho field Glamour Dinner with Justine, by Justine Schofield, is published by Plum, $39.99. Available in all good bookstores and online. Through my television show, Everyday Gourmet, I’ve been lucky enough to cook in front of thousands of viewers every day. I love hearing their stories about what they’ve cooked and what they feel they need more help with. This book feels like a natural extension of that sharing of knowledge. When it comes down to it, we all want simple, wholesome, delicious recipes that (most of the time) can be made throughout the week with accessible ingredients. I’ve structured my book by ingredient because I find this to be the most useful directory. When cooking, I always start with a core ingredient. I prefer to see what produce looks good on the day and is at its seasonal peak. This is the food I love to cook and eat at home – every day. There are many French recipes, of course, because I grew up with this cuisine. There are also recipes from my travels and a few adapted from restaurants I’ve been fortunate enough to cook in. I hope you enjoy making the dishes your own and finding some new family favourites. Food makes me happy and I hope it does the same for you.
