I’m debuting a new feature here at The Seasonal Gourmet: Essential Recipes. This is a page that can be found at the top of the site, beside ‘My Reading List’. It’s an on-going project to build a library of basic recipes that will be building blocks for a better finished project. It will (eventually) include pastry, stocks and classic sauces. Be patient – it’s a work in progress so I’ll be adding the information over time. If a recipe on the main site requires one of the Essential Recipes, I will provide a link to the page.
