From Publishers Weekly
The Can Opener Gourmet relies on a simple premise: canned food is convenient, cheap and underutilized. Who knew that a credible beef stroganoff could be made with little more than the contents of three cans? Or that a decent ginger-carrot soup could be concocted without whole carrots? The stroganoff uses canned roast beef, and the soup relies on-no kidding-four jars of carrot baby food. While her recipes are inarguably quick and easy, Karr's reliance on powdered spices, tinned meats and bottled juices can become a little unnerving. Really, how hard is it to slice a piece of chicken? Fresh ingredients are often almost as convenient as canned, and their taste is incomparably better. Karr's prose is chatty and generous, and her use of shortcuts is ingenuous, but in the end her bookmight remind readers of a slightly dotty aunt who's been saving the same piece of tinfoil for five years-and whose dinner invitations they often decline.

About the Author
Laura Karr fell in love with cooking at an early age. Before she even started kindergarten, she learned the basics by helping her family cater weddings. This business lasted several years and her skills were further advanced when her grandmother accepted a position as head chef at a Northern California college. After graduating from college herself, Laura pursued her other love-writing. She mastered this craft through a series of writing jobs at magazines and writing advertising copy at a major global agency. Recently, Laura decided to combine her two passions, and the result is her first book: THE CAN OPENER GOURMET. --This text refers to an alternate Plastic Comb edition.

Everything from starters/salads and main courses all the way to desserts. It even has a guide as to what to stock in your pantry, menu suggestions and a very helpful section on "Things you didn't know about canned goods" to potentially quell skeptics who say, "...Canned potatoes, are you serious?". Yes... the author is serious.
* NOTE: For those of you who self-identify as "Preppers", or who just want to be prepared in the event of a disaster, this would be a good book to have next to your supply of canned goods for a "rainy day" so you don't have to eat Hormel Chili or Dinty Moore Stew out of the can for 7 days in a row. I have this book along w/ "Apocalypse Chow - How to eat well when the power goes out." in my Prepper Library.
