Cooking for Two: 120 Recipes for Every Day and Those Special Nights

Bruce Weinstein, Mark Scarbrough


Tea for 2. that is what it is all approximately, correct? So how come each recipe you choose up says "serves four to 6"? Or extra! What do you do in the event you wish macaroni and cheese, yet don't desire to be reheating it for 3 nights? Or a few cookies, yet don't desire to be tempted by means of dozen sitting at the counter all week?

Creative cookbook authors and chefs Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough have all of the solutions in Cooking for Two.

Brimming with a hundred and twenty smaller-serving, big-taste recipes,Cooking for 2 bargains chefs primary favorites corresponding to PastaBolognese, poultry Pot Pie, and Mushroom Barley Soup, in addition to new dishes for cutting-edge tastes like beef Satay Salad and Snapper Fillets Sautéed with Orange and Pecans.

easily scaling down higher recipes results in wasted constituents. yet Bruce and Mark have built each one recipe so that you purchase in simple terms what you wish, and use all of what you purchase. rather than commencing a can of vegetable inventory merely to exploit 3 tablespoons, use the liquid the dried mushrooms have soaked in. If an onion is just too huge for a recipe, chop a shallot as an alternative.

The dessert chapters are packed with cookies, puddings, and truffles, all designed for 2 servings. Small-batch baking calls for strict awareness to aspect. a typical egg could be too giant for a small batch of six cookies, in order that they recommend quail eggs or the easy-to-find pasteurized egg substitutes, that you would be able to degree out in tablespoons.

Truly a cookbook for daily use, each one recipe is classified as speedy (ready in mins with minimum cooking), reasonable (requires a section extra training or cooking), or leisurely (perfect for quiet celebrations or weekend food) that will help you make a decision which dish most closely fits into your day.

With factor and gear courses, in addition to how one can inventory your pantry to prevent these there's-nothing-in-the-house-so-let's-go-out moments, Cooking for 2 would certainly turn into the cookbook you succeed in for each evening of the week.

It's simply perfect.
