Praise For…


Plenty of alluring plates of food for cold months are what the cooking teacher Susan Herrmann Loomis, who is based in France, provides in her new book, Plat du Jour. The seasonally focused recipes are mostly center-of-the-plate fare, including chicken braised in wine with leeks and cream, scallops with celery root purée, classic beef bourguignon, Basque lamb and sweet pepper stew, and even some vegetable showstoppers like potato and chive soufflé, and endive and leek gratin.
