It maximizes on the trend of emphasizing elements that have traditionally played a supporting role at the table and capitalizes on our obsession as cooks with our ability to accessorize a meal using quality ingredients in inspired, varied and memorable recipes.Choosing Sides elevates accompaniments with more interesting options than plain potatoes or buttered noodles. It offers entrée suggestions for each recipe with flavor and textural pairings in mind, and helps cooks design entire meals, not just the main dish, instead of tagging on bland afterthoughts at the last minute. Today the food that flanks the entrée is as important as the focal point itself. It offers a range of recipes for broad appeal, crossing cuisines, techniques and complexity such as:Chorizo ChardCoconut Cilantro Toasted Israeli CouscousSmoked Gouda GritsSugar Snap Peas with Grana Padano CrustBrowned Brussels with Maple Butter DrizzleVintage Potato SaladOrange and Black Bean QuinoaPumpkin Cozy RollsHoney Balsamic Peaches and Burrata
