Fast, simple, and really great meals for real people-from Sam the Cooking Guy
On his popular television show, Sam Zien shows regular people how to make great meals that are long on taste and short on effort. Sam might not be Michelin rated, but his refreshing approach to cooking with basic ingredients, simple techniques, and equipment almost everyone has at hand makes cooking simple, fun, and satisfying. There's no foie gras, truffle oil, or papillote involved and it doesn't matter if you can't spell "hors d'oeuvre." There are no fancy techniques or rare ingredients here, just great tasting food that anyone can make.
Awesome Recipes and Kitchen Shortcuts makes it even easier with simple tricks for preparing great meals on the fly. Turn a roast chicken from the corner deli into a fake pulled pork sandwich. Keep pre-cooked pasta in the freezer and bust out a tub of pre-made pesto for an instant Italian meal.
Keep it real and real simple with Sam's Awesome Recipes and Kitchen Shortcuts.

Love Sam's philosophy: I'm not a chef, I'm just an ordinary guy who cooks food people like.
How much simpler is that?
It's Sam, what do you expect? Tasty recipes with awesome, simple shortcuts. Since moving out of SoCal, I miss being able to watch his show.Published 11 months ago by M. Rodrigues
Sam's show is the best cooking show EVER, hands down. I love the book. Watching him do his thing on television, however, is the best. :)Published 17 months ago by T. BECKER
