Busy home cooks can create exciting meals straight from the pantry with this unique cookbook from America's Test Kitchen.

Cook more, shop less, and improvise like a pro with over 350 recipes and tricks for making the most of ingredients you already have on hand.

Flexibility should be in every cook's arsenal--sometimes you can't always get to the supermarket. This invaluable cooking resource from America's Test Kitchen shows cooks how to make use of their pantry by thinking in categories. The recipe is the blueprint--you focus on what the ingredients do, not just what they are.

- Long storage vegetables: use go-to staples like potatoes and garlic, even frozen veggies
- Proteins: items like eggs, tinned fish, tofu, and cured meat anchor the meal
- Toppings: creamy and rich, or crispy, crunchy, and chewy--these always transform a dish
- Acidic and pickled foods: brighten everything up
- Umami: flavor-enhancing condiments and seasonings add depth to food
- Hot and smoky elements: spices, chiles, and sauces enliven your mea
- Sweet and tart flavorings: balance out anything that's salty, bitter, sour, or hot
- DIY Pantry items: make your own blends and toppings

Whether you're a home cook who wants to get more creative, or are budget and waste-conscious, or even just pressed for time on a weeknight, America's Test Kitchen will show you how to improvise with confidence.

Its appeal lies in the fact that it is healthy, wholesome, flavorsome, simple to make and beautiful to look at. This book features recipes for all occasions and times of the day, ranging from morning buns, lunchtime savories, hearty dinners and indulgent desserts, to bakes and other foods for special celebrations. Enjoy fresh and simple open sandwiches, healthy Nordic salads, delicious traditional hot dishes and indulgent cakes.

    Cook You Want to Be

    Cook You Want to Be

    Baraghani, Andy
    $35.00
    JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNER - NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Beloved food writer and social media star Andy Baraghani helps you define and develop your personal cooking style--and become the cook you want to be--in more than 100 recipes.

    "This book is full of things I want to make and cook."--Yotam Ottolenghi

    ONE OF THE TEN BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR: San Francisco Chronicle
    ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR: Bon Appétit, Saveur, Salon, Epicurious

    Andy Baraghani peeled hundreds of onions at Chez Panisse as a teenage intern, honed his perfectly balanced salad-making skills at Estela in New York, and developed recipes in the test kitchens of Saveur, Tasting Table, and Bon Appétit. It took him all those years to figure out the cook he wanted to be: a cook who is true to his Persian heritage, a fresh-vegetable lover, a citrus superfan, and an always-hungry world traveler. In The Cook You Want to Be, Baraghani shows home cooks on how to hone their own cooking styles by teaching the techniques and unexpected flavor combinations that maximize flavor in minimal time.

    At Bon Appétit, Baraghani created a bevy of viral recipes--from Tahini Ranch to Fall-Apart Caramelized Cabbage--that became household staples. Here, he follows up with more umami-rich dishes, beautiful and restaurant-worthy meals (that take half the time), and well-known dishes recast in utterly delicious ways. Among his debut cookbook's 100 recipes, new surefire hits include Caramelized Sweet Potatoes with Browned Butter Harissa; Sticky, Spicy Basil Shrimp; and Tangy Pomegranate-Chicken. Cooks will find inspiration to riff on, quick meals for hurried weeknights, condiments galore, and memorable meals to impress dinner guests. In essays throughout the book, Baraghani shares convictions (why everyone must make his beloved Persian egg dish, kuku sabzi) and lessons to live by (the importance of salting fish before cooking it).

    The Cook You Want to Be is a trove of go-to recipes and knowledge, stunning photographs, and delicious, simple home cooking for modern times.
