He shows you how pan-searing locally grown broccoli brings out its unique flavor, how an outstanding aged American Cheddar turns a bowl of tomato soup into a meal to remember, how a simple marmalade sauce can effortlessly enliven pork chops, and how a splash of light vinaigrette punctuated with lemon and basil makes any fresh fish shine.

He even includes helpful sidebars that demystify food terms, explaining the difference between Dungeness and peekytoe crabs, farmed and wild salmon, and “natural”and “organic.”
