Staff Reviews


Claire Thomson has managed to do something new yet obvious in bringing us New Kitchen Basics—a book of staples built around 10 key ingredients everyone will know, but for the 21st-century American kitchen, where comfort food includes tacos, curries, and pho’ as much as it does roast chicken, pancakes, and burgers. Written specifically for accessibility and accompanied by beautiful photos and clear, simple instructions, this is one you will start cooking from right away.

— Jocelyn

Description


Most of us buy the same ingredients week in, week out, and cook the same old recipes. Cookery writer Claire Thomson wants to encourage people to ditch the boring chicken stir-fry and the all-too-predictable spaghetti, and enliven their cooking and eating.

Claire takes our 10 favorite ingredients and reinvents them as modern classics. With sections on chicken, tomatoes, eggs, ground meat, pasta, potatoes, salad, lemon and chocolate, each chapter covers the basics about that ingredient, then offers 12 recipes using each in ways that will brighten up mealtimes. Claire's cooking is simple yet imaginative, and her kitchen expertise and knowledge of flavor combinations means that these dishes will become your new standby meals.

This is the new essential cookbook, a modern-day solution to the eternal question: "What should I cook tonight?"
