These easy-to-make pumpkin sage drop biscuits are packed with Autumnal flavor and are perfect to accompany a hearty soup or stew in the wintertime.

The Gourmet Kitchen

This post is a part of a series of cookbook posts that I’ll be running from now through December. I was not monetarily compensated for this post but I did receive this cookbook for free as a review copy. I receive numerous cookbooks throughout the year and only choose to highlight and write about the ones I truly love.

I get a ton of cookbooks in the mail and most of them fall into a few different categories. I get a lot of the quick and easy sort of cookbooks that promise to get a meal on the table in 45 minutes or less, or with 5 ingredients or less. The single subject cookbook (like a book dedicated to cooking with tea or a book all about vanilla) is another popular type of book. But then there are the chef and restaurant aspirational cookbooks. These books are packed full of impossibly beautiful food photographs and recipes with a laundry list of ingredients that require their own specific recipe to create (use 2 teaspoons of carrot oil, recipe found on page 246) that make them beautiful to look at but rarely used. So when I received The Gourmet Kitchen by Jennifer Farley, I was thrilled to find beautiful, sophisticated recipes that were approachable in their direction and ingredients.(Jump directly to the recipe.)

As much as I love a giant coffee table cookbook like those chef and restaurant cookbooks, my coffee table is pretty small. So small in fact, that I can only put two or three cookbooks on it; those books tend to be large Star Wars books. But Jennifer Farley, founder of the blog Savory Simple, found a way to make a beautiful cookbook that I would actually take into the kitchen. Recipes are sophisticated like her Spinach, Artichoke and Caramelized Leek Tart or Pistachio-Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Cherry-Rhubarb Compote but they don’t require a ton of time to make or a million esoteric ingredients to track down (or worse to make yourself).

The Gourmet Kitchen

The simplicity of Roasted Radishes with Butter and Parsley, Honey Roasted Carrots with Cumin or Grilled Oysters with Chipotle Tarragon Butter are exactly the sort of recipes that I adore. They are easy to execute but just different enough that I don’t feel like I already know the recipe. The Gourmet Kitchen is the sort of cookbook that you’ll actually use, not just look at.

I usually don’t buy one theme ingredient cookbook unless it was pasta 🙂 I love pasta!! But this cookbook looks interesting. I also enjoy when there is a story involved — whether it’s about an ingredient or how the person came up with the recipe — It was a total accident! I meant to make dessert and ended up with . . .I’m not familiar with this blogger — I’ll have to sneak a peak 🙂

Looks scrumptious! But Irvin, love, how can you ever have too much fresh sage? Crispy fried in butter til the butter browns it’s ambrosial on so many fall foods, especially a sweet roasted winter squash.
