Bittman here offers a sampling of 404 inspiring recipes. But don't expect another How to Cook Everything. This newest is of a different kind—simple and snappy, and rarely calls for measuring spoons. The no-sweat recipes are divided into four sections: summer, fall, winter and spring, capitalizing on the freshest ingredients of each season while whittling down the prep time of ordinarily elaborate dishes like coq au vin and ricotta cheesecake to 10 minutes or less. The book includes a drill-down of how best to stock your kitchen, and given the impromptu nature of the book, the substitution grid proves indispensable. While many dishes are sandwiches, dips or salads, Bittman offers a handful of innovative gems like figs in a blanket and pasta jambalaya, drawing from a diverse gastronomical panorama including Latin, Asian, Mediterranean and Creole flavors. And while quick, Bittman's recipes don't lack his signature creative punch. Lavender-thyme braised chicken, scallop and peach ceviche and a five-spice lobster sandwich will make most readers both salivate and appreciate the ease of his recipes. (June)

Good recipe book! Easy to make recipes that are quick. I also really like the seasonal divide. I'm taking off a star because it's not perfect. But it's pretty good!Published 3 months ago by Dan Marshall

Great approach to cooking. Simple and straightforward. Does not give exact measurements, so it's fine for those of us who find regular recipes annoying because we never have... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Anacortes shopper
I love Mark Bittman's work; this book, not so much. Frankly, very few of the "ideas" inspired me to make them. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Pagurus
