Judi Swinks is a San Francisco-based photographer specializing in food and flowers.
This is another user-friendly book by a well-known San Francisco teacher, chef and restaurateur (Square One) Joyce Goldstein, that meets a very specific need: These are recipes for the single guy or gal who doesn't want to make do with corn flakes or cottage cheese for dinner. The author doesn't rely on shortcuts, unless you consider polenta with spinach and peas or asparagus with eggs and Parmesan a shortcut.
Many of Goldstein's dishes segue into second meals; all rely on excellent fresh ingredients. With this book as a guide, it's easy to eat well when you're home alone. -San Francisco Chronicle
