The recipes in this book range from easy weeknight meals to more elaborate weekend feasts, but all of them share Mary’s simple instructions and warm style. With Mary’s guidance and encouragement, you’ll find beautiful recipes to nourish yourself and your family all year long.

Well Seasoned covers every course and occasion, with accessible yet aspirational recipes that Mary calls into service to feed herself and her family on the regular. Like her, the book is fun and the dishes are a bit unexpected – think strawberries and rhubarb inverted into a tarte tatin, or a handful of sour-cream-and-onion chips crushed over new potato salad.”
