I don’t know if you’ve heard of the food delivery company, Plated, but the idea behind it is to provide people with fresh, pre-portioned ingredients + chef-designed recipes so that anyone can make their own meals at home, and this book definitely reflects that philosophy.
The book is divided into the following chapters:
-Kitchen Basics (covers how to outfit your kitchen, what to stock in your pantry, “kitchen commandments,” knife skills…)
-Great For Leftovers
-For A Crowd (recipe menus include…Date Night, Cocktail Party, Fancy Pants Dinner Party, Sunday Supper, Weekend Brunch, Backyard Barbecue, and Thanksgiving Dinner!)
-On the Side
-At the End
Learn how to make all kinds of different spice rubs, marinades, dressings, sauces, and infusions, or check out the quick weeknight meal recipes, make-ahead recipes for bulk-cooking (includes storage instructions), leftover meal ideas, weekend feast recipes, menus for entertaining (complete with timelines on how to make everything so you don’t have to ignore your guests), recipes for side dishes, and desserts!
There’s an appendix at the back with a seasonal produce guide and glossary. Each recipe includes a short intro, serving size, the ingredient list and the instructions.
