BOMC/Cooking & Crafts Club alternate: According to Bery, a cooking instructor and chef-owner of Another Season restaurant in Boston, this book exists partly because ``so very many people'' have asked for her recipes. It's easy to see why. Her repertoire includes an abundance of sophisticated, innovative dishesbasics, appetizers, soups, breads, seafood, meat, poultry and vegetarian entrees, salads, vegetables and dessertsemphasizing fresh, seasonal ingredients. Vegetarian moussaka, dill mousseline and pork-loin moldavienne attest to international culinary influences, while an array of seafood dishes, such as chilled crabmeat corn soup and sole cala llonga, reminds readers that Another Season is located in a seaport. Recipes are graded according to difficulty, and there is no shortage of challenges. And, although not exclusively for the expert chef, this volume certainly is for the serious one. While even a number of the ``easy'' recipes are described as ``time consuming,'' some can be prepared at least partially in advance. Illustrations not seen by PW. (September)
