About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
To me, this book is an invitation to engage in the nourishing rituals of shopping for quality ingredients (whole, seasonal, local, organic) and preparing them in a way that delivers maximum taste and health benefits. Amy Chaplin’s professional background shines through these pages: her experience as a chef, recipe developer and teacher is evident in the perfectly composed recipes and the clear, concise instructions.
The first part of the book offers thoughtful, well-edited sections on ingredients, equipment, and techniques, where Amy shares a cooking philosophy that is gentle for our health and for the planet: practical strategies to reduce plastic use; methods for soaking and preparing grains, beans and nuts; etc.
This is followed by more than 150 inspiring recipes that comprise a nice balance of simple, quick recipes for busy days and recipes that require more time or involve several components. Throughout the book Amy offers several suggestions for meal/menu composition and I especially enjoyed her description of “A week of meals in my kitchen.” There are also many great tips that will enhance my cooking skills; for example, Amy suggests adding an umeboshi plum instead of salt when cooking rice and the result is indeed very good.Read more ›
