5.0 out of 5 stars Non-cook...until now?, September 27, 2010
This review is from: In the Kitchen with A Good Appetite: 150 Recipes and Stories About the Food You Love (Hardcover)
I'm a lifelong non-cook who picked up "In the Kitchen" because I liked the charming little stories, and because I'm always hoping to find that magic book that will inspire me to make wholesome but interesting dinners for my family.

Well, Ms. Clark makes you feel like anyone can whip up, say, garlicky swiss chard (p.11) when you see that it takes just fifteen minutes and has only five ingredients. And if you can make that, maybe you can take on steamed wild salmon with mustard greens, soy sauce and ginger (p. 85) next. After that, who knows? You could be offering to contribute lemon barley stuffing with shiitakes, hazelnuts and chive butter (p. 321) to the next family Thanksgiving. It all sounds completely delicious, and the stories Ms. Clark includes about her process make you feel like she'd be alongside you in spirit in your kitchen.

Though I just bought the book and haven't cooked anything yet, I've already marked quite a few pages and even written down some ingredients on a list. Maybe this is that magic book I've been waiting for...
