MEATS & POULTRY from the Best of the Williams-Sonoma Kitchen Library is one of my trusted standbys. Tonight's dinner is a relatively simple but tasty meal which can be prepared in about an hour. (Note: I do find I need to cook this about twice as long as the recipe calls for...) It makes excellent leftovers.
One of my all-time favorite recipes for Roast Chicken and Gravy can be found in MEATS & POULTRY as well. I've found this book to be one of the mainstays of my cooking library.
