A Dish for All Seasons: 125+ Recipe Variations for Delicious Meals All Year Round is not your everyday “seasonal” cookbook. Rather the author, Kathryn Pauline (creator of the excellent blog Cardamom and Tea), takes twenty-five basic recipes and adapts them to each of the four seasons. This not only gives cooks great ideas using seasonal ingredients, but also inspires them to use their imaginations to come up with their own variations.

One thing that is very helpful is that the author includes basic recipes for things most of us cook often, such as basic pancakes, waffles, French toast, and crepes, so the basic recipes are a bonus to use constantly. She also includes spice mixes, sauces, and salad dressings to use on many dishes. The recipes are written in the traditional manner so they are easy-to-follow. Most have minimal ingredients and are fairly easy to put together.

Pauline includes beautiful photographs of most of the recipes as well as the seasonal variations. Also included are “grids” which list ingredients to add seasonally to each dish.

All told, this is an excellent cookbook with great ideas; it would make an excellent wedding gift or one for a beginning cook. It’s full of ideas that everyone can use and expand their cooking abilities along with excellent ideas for meals. It is good enough, that many cooks will use it every day to prepare new dishes at home.
