"Every recipe has an implicit guarantee... Easy, quick, works, boom
."—The Atlantic, on Tuesday Nights
Milk Street founder Kimball (Milk Street: The New Rules) collects solid recipes with six ingredients or fewer that build flavor with powerhouse components rather than fussy prep. Most of these meals, in which 'time is no longer the key ingredient,' are prepared in a single pot. The simplicity is appealing and the flavors are bright...The quick-and-easy concept is carried out consistently, and this clever title will be a boon for weeknight cooks.
[R]eaders will delight in these fresh, surprising dishes, which usually take 30 minutes or less to prepare...The splashy color photos of the finished dishes are smartly laid out, and the recipes are easy to follow, certainly plentiful, and helpfully organized into vegetable, beans and grains, pasta, seafood, chicken, pork, beef, and dessert chapters. Another strong outing by Kimball and his popular Milk Street crew.
Once again, Christopher Kimball and the rest of the James Beard Award-winning team at Boston’s Milk Street have penned a cookbook that uses transformative ingredients and clever techniques to make deliciously quick weeknight dinners.
Kimball says when he founded the Milk Street empire from which this latest cookbook was born, he seized onto a more global view of cooking -- that it's the ingredients that matter most. Here he makes a compelling case for what he deems is a "powerhouse supermarket pantry" -- miso, garam masala, harissa and ground turmeric to name a few -- and delivers on the promise the investment brings...This is a recipe collection bursting with ease, allowing a handful of key ingredients to orient a dish.
