Cookbook Recommendation: Eat! The Quick-Look Cookbook
Tired of cooking from generic cookbooks? Well I believe cooking can be fun, and a good recipe book should leave room for creativity. Gabriela Scolik’s book, Eat! The Quick-Look Cookbook, does just that.
It covers almost every popular kitchen technique and basic recipe that the average person would need. Directions are illustrated using info-graphics and bare-bone instructions that make room for adjustments based on personal preferences and seasonal ingredients. The book opens with suggestions on food pairings; cabbage, for example, goes well with bacon, bay leaves, or balsamic vinegar, while eggs, onions and mushrooms are great complements to Brussels sprouts. Everything from tabbouleh and crab cakes to pancakes and tiramisu is covered in these incredibly readable info-graphics.
The book’s closing remarks provides guidance for serving and pairing wines, and mixing classic cocktails. Eat! will make a thoughtful gift for anyone whose favorite space is the kitchen.
