The recipes I cooked came out well as they always do, but something just seemed to be missing, and perhaps that is the other ingredients, for when you are going to take the time to cook something you might as well have the full pantry ready to go.
Bottom line for a beginner cook this is an excellent book, for a more seasoned chef you may be bored by the simplicity, but your guests will enjoy it none the less.
Nearly a hundred of the 175 recipes here feature a full color, full page 5x7-inch photo of the finished dish. Each recipe is accompanied by a "why this works" analysis. There are also conversion and equivalencies charts for volume, weight, ingredients commonly used in baking and oven temperatures for Fahrenheit, Celsius and Gas Mark. As for the recipes...here's a sampler:
24 EFFORTLESS APPETIZERS, among them: "Pink Peppercorn-Crusted Goat Cheese Log," "Spicy Shrimp Cocktail Shooters," and "Crispy Spiced Chickpeas."
11 SIMPLY SENSATIONAL SOUPS like "Chai-infused Butternut Squash Soup," "Roasted Tomato Soup" and "Thai Red Curry and Coconut Chicken Soup."
22 CHICKEN recipes, including "Unstuffed Chicken Cordon Bleu," "Mustard-Glazed Drumsticks," and "Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomato Burgers."
18 BEEF, PORK & LAMB recipes, including "Steak Salad with Arugula and Shaved Parmesan," "Sesame Pork Chops with Orange and Radish Salad," and "Lamb Pitas with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce.Read more ›
This book, while well thought out, occasionally leaves me wanting a little more from the recipes. Additionally, it does call for creative uses of non-pantry staple items. As a result, I'm consistently one ingredient short of a full recipe and figuring out how to make a substitution.
On its own, this is definitely not a bad cookbook. In comparison to other ATK volumes, it seems a little lacking. I will say that this volume does have me creatively looking at ingredients, though! Maybe it's a success due to that.
As a guide for new cooks, this is an impeccable volume. There are standards in the beginning of the book that reveal basic secrets that just make sense, such as remembering to flavor and taste what you're preparing. More experienced cooks will find new ideas.
The recipes themselves are featured in a wide variety of sections that most comprehensive cookbooks would include, including a vegetarian main dish section for everyone, and a Slow and Easy section that will get plenty of use this winter here. The recipes are clearly and cleanly written, and are easy to track while using them. The photographs are clear and make the finished food look appealing and easy to replicate.
6 Ingredient Solution is a cookbook to keep with any cook's most trusted ones, and to pull off the shelf for frequent use.
