San Francisco Chronicle writer Jessica Battilana used popular recipes from her weekly column, “Repertoire,” to create her latest cookbook by the same name. This collection of recipes is a foolproof set of simple meals, designed to help those cooking at home perfect a few dishes, and then play around with the recipes.
