“Why eat mediocre food when it could be stupendous?” Molly Baz (Cook This Book) is a maximalist—not in a gluttonous way, but rather in cooking and eating bold food with big personality. She’s also all about having more fun and more confidence in the kitchen, and she makes her case convincingly in her new cookbook. Along with the advocating she does for liberal seasoning, cranking the heat, and making condiments your BFFL, Baz provides recipes for snacks, drinks, dinner, salads, and sides, like Crispy, Crunchy Brocc & Grains with So. Much. Mint. and Peach & Pickled Pepper Panzanella. Definitely not boring!

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Learn to cook with confidence and unbridled joy in 100 big, bold, flavorful recipes from Molly Baz

A BEST COOKBOOK OF THE YEAR: NPR, Good Housekeeping, New York Post, Publishers Weekly

It’s time to crank up the heat and lose the measuring spoons because the secret to cooking is hiding in one simple motto: MORE IS MORE. In her bestselling debut cookbook, Cook This Book, Molly Baz taught the cooking essentials and put her love for mortadella and dill on blast. In More Is More, she’s teaching cooks how to level up their cooking, loosen up in front of that ripping hot pan, and seek deliciousness at all costs. (And yes, there will be more mortadella.) More Is More is a philosophy that encourages more risk-taking, better intuition, fewer exact measurements, and a “don’t stop ‘til it tastes delicious” mentality. 

The recipes in More Is More are fit for any day of the week and for cooks of all skill levels. Each recipe will teach a technique or flavor combination that takes Molly’s maximalist, “leave no flavor on the cutting board” approach. So crank your ovens! Grab a fat pinch of salt! And if you’re going to use an ingredient, truly use it. Just one lonely clove of garlic? Not in this cookbook! 

Start your morning with a Crispy Rice Egg-in-a-Hole, throw together a Chicken Salad with Coconut Crunch for lunch, look forward to Drunken Cacio e Pepe for dinner, and save room for a fat slice of Ooey Gooey Carrot Cake for dessert. The Only Meatloaf that Matters will teach you the power of re-frying, while Miso-Braised Chicken and Leeks will ensure you never throw away the green tops of the leeks again. 

Throughout, you’ll encounter dozens of QR codes to step-by-step audio tutorials for a hands-free cook-along experience guided by Molly, plus recipe videos to help illuminate some of the trickier skills and recipes. 

With intoxicatingly delicious recipes, vivid photographs, and Molly's one-of-a-kind playful guidance and whimsy, More Is More will inspire cooks to embrace a fearless mindset to level up their cooking—for life.
