I love to cook. I have dozens and dozens of cook books, and I love trying new recipes. This book takes a different approach to cook books by helping you get the most of your money while trying new recipes. Instead of going to the store and spending $400 on groceries to try your 7 new recipes for the week, this book narrows that down to one major cooking endeavor and then ways to use the leftovers from that to create dishes that don't feel like leftovers. I recommend this book, especially for those like me who's shopping addiction is not the Gap, but the grocery store. You can have delicious meals without spending a fortune at the store.
I saw this book and perked up. I read the reviews and thought hmmmmm. I waited a bit. I browsed facebook. I checked Nick Evans blog. The blog sold me. I bought the book and was thankful I did.
This book is neatly arranged by main ingredient. There is a recipe for the main ingredient, then a list of what ca be made from leftovers of that ingredient. There is an index, something becoming a lost art in today's cookbooks.
Because I am a cookbook hoarder, I switched to ebooks. It is neater, no dusting and I have the books right where they belong because no one wandered off with one. Some books are worthy enough to be purchased in print form also now. These books are right in the kitchen for weekly use and this one is going in that shelf as soon as I am paid next week!
This book is full of delightful recipes, written in an easy to follow conversational manner. These recipes can be followed by anyone able to read who has basic cooking skills. That is important to me as I am teaching someone to cook. She sometimes freaks out if she thinks the dish is cooking wrong so small helpful bits of encouragement are a bonus. ("Don't worry if a few grains of rice escape while draining." "Be sure to only cook your pasta al dente so it does not become soggy during baking.Read more ›
This cookbook is awesome because it gives us recipes to make large portions of a few staple foods that last for days (we make these on the days we have time to cook) and then smaller faster recipes to make new and quick dishes each night using the leftovers.
I also really like how it's organized. Instead of searching for the individual dishes you want to make in a week, the book is laid out like a list of customizable meal plans, with the each dish in a chapter related to the others. It makes planing your meals for the week (and the grocery list to go with it) very very easy.
