As a college student who loves cooking but doesn't have a lot to spend on money, this book was GREAT at giving me recipes that I could make for small amounts of money that were delicious at the same time. I made my own fresh pasta, tried my hand at breadmaking for the first time and saved a whole lot of money while learning great cooking techniques. Even to a picky eater, this book made things sound delicious and I was able to try recipes that I would probably have never thought to make before. This book is an invaluable resource to me.
This book could be for anybody who likes to cook, or even just wants to learn a little bit more about cooking, while on a budget. Rebecca Lando has compiled a gem here that allows for people to do just that-embrace their creative side while still creating filling meals that will keep your mouth, your stomach and your wallet all happy. She even tells you how to stock a pantry, something that I've been trying to learn over the years by compiling my own list, but have never quite gotten down; the book was SO helpful with that!!Read more ›
The book suggested that if I would wrap my arms and head around comfort, contentment, and variety in the kitchen, it would stay for dinner and others I care about would arrive to join us.
I admit it. I usually glance for direction at the recipes in most of my cookbooks and then launch off on my own with a fairly high success rate. Not in the case of Rebecca Lando's book. The Working Class Foodies Cookbook talked to me, and I listened happily. It knows what it's talking about every time.
Thank you, Rebecca.
But I can see how "Two DINKs Who Are Each Working Class But Not Actually That Worried About Money and Who Live in a Major (Most Likely Coastal US) City Within Walking Distance of a Fabulous Farmers Market That Includes Fishmongers Cookbook" might be a bit unwieldy.
It is an outstanding cookbook, but lacks pictures.
As far as the recipes themselves go, many are just basic, simple recipes that many of us have cooked for years. There's some pantry staples (making your own ketchup, mayonnaise, and so forth), basic sauces, roasted veggies and the like. There are, however, some lovely recipes in this book that call to be tried out such as "Green Beans and Hazelnuts with Tarragon-Cider Vinaigrette", "Pancetta, Squash and Shallot Risotto", "Jumble-Berry Pie" and "Sea Salt-Honey Caramels".
This book would be better with more photos. Four pages of photos stuck in the middle of the book with pictures of less than 20 recipes is a big turn off for a lot of people when buying a cookbook.Read more ›
