This is one of my favorite school projects, mostly because it involves FOOD! All too often ketchup, mustard, relish and mayonnaise are afterthoughts in cuisine; they aren't main ingredients nor are they considered elegant. I wanted to take an unseemingly irrelevant food group, like condiments, and turn them into a sophisticated and gourmet ingredient.
This cookbook is an attempt at breaking down this stereotype in cooking. Each recipe is fancy and predominantly features one of the basic condiments depicted on the cover: ketchup, mustard, relish and mayonnaise. A full chapter is devoted to each condiment with a brief introduction of Basic recipes that can then be used to create Appetizers, Sides & Salads, Main Dishes and Desserts...yeah, I said desserts too!
