Simply Fresh: Casual Dining at Home
As you’ll soon learn, casual dining at home has never been so easy or so delicious!
The first Ruby Tuesday opened its doors to guests in 1972 near the campus of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and today there are more than 900 of them across the United States and around the world. The original vision for Ruby Tuesday and casual dining extends from cover-to-cover inside Simply Fresh by professional gourmet Jeff Morgan. Morgan writes on wine and food for such publications as the New York Times, Food and Wine, Wine Country Living, Wine Enthusiast, and Wine Spectator.
In addition to more than 100 recipes that take their inspiration and cues from Ruby Tuesday’s brunch, lunch, dinner, and dessert menus, Simply Fresh features more than 100 full-color photographs that show the reader how to prepare restaurant-quality casual dining at home. It also includes creative beverage recipes for an extensive selection of mixed drinks, along with suggestions for handcrafted boutique beers. There are tips on how to successfully host gatherings of friends and family, as well as direct and useful information about pairing wine with food.
In Simply Fresh, Morgan showcases the best of casual dining at home, with easy-to-follow recipes that resonate with consumers who crave colorful, tasty dishes such as Tai Phoon Shrimp, Saffron Tomato Soup, or Curried Chicken with Coconut Rice and Cucumber Raita, not to mention Ruby Tuesday’s signature burgers and famous Mac ‘n Cheese.
