"Organized by month, and featuring a recipe for every day on the calendar, Williams-Sonoma One Pot of the Day includes 365 dishes to match any season or occasion. No matter what you are in the mood for—comforting casseroles, braised meats, creamy chowders, frittatas and risottos, hearty pot pies, cheesy gratins, baked pastas, or spicy gumbos, curries, and tagines—you’ll find an enticing meal that can be made or presented all in one vessel.

Drawing on fresh ingredients as a starting point, learn how to craft exceptional dishes by simply varying the cooking technique and flavor profile. Recipes like paella, Thai red curry with beef, and coq au vin draw on international cuisines and are satisfying enough to make a full meal; other dishes, such as braised salmon with herbs, chicken and basil stir-fry, and pork medallions with roasted nectarines may need only a green salad, a pot of steamed rice, or a loaf of crusty bread to feed and nourish the whole family.

You’ll find comforting classics like chicken pot pie and meat loaf as well as contemporary fare—cannelloni packed with pumpkin and sage; calamari stuffed with tomatoes, basil, and potatoes; maple-braised pork chops; and baked grits with sausage and kale. There are also numerous meatless offerings, from light and elegant to hearty and filling, that feature easy-to-prepare grains or proteins paired with garden-based ingredients and enticing flavors: vegetarian enchiladas; spinach-feta quiche; baked pasta primavera; gingery tofu stir-fry; and red quinoa sautéed with asparagus and mushrooms.

This collection of scrumptious recipes offers ease, comfort, and flavor for everyday cooking. From slow-cooked stews and quick stir-fries to paellas and pilafs, the spectacular array of dishes in this cookbook will serve you through the seasons.
