Description
Sustainable and conscious eating made simple, fun, and delicious—the founder of Impatient Foodie shows how the "slow food" movement doesn't have to be slow with these inspired meals perfect for everyone.Elettra Wiedemann didn't set out to be a foodie. At twenty-eight, with a burgeoning global modeling career and a Master's degree from the London School of Economics, she understood the larger impact of her food choices, and the importance of a more conscious way of life. But whenever she walked into her apartment after a twelve-hour work day, all her ideals about food would collapse. Why did being a foodie mean you have to labor for hours using obscure cooking methods and ingredients? Why did good food always go hand-in-hand with slowing down? Wasn't there a way to have slow, sustainable, delicious food without the "slow"? Impatient Foodie bridges the gap between the ideals of the organic, slow food movement and the realities of a busy life. Loaded with shortcuts, pantry lists, and more than one hundred handy and delicious recipes for busy people, this vividly illustrated, easy-to-navigate cookbook shows how to get the most out of your meals in the least amount of time. Organized by ingredient to minimize grocery store trips and maximize seasonality, Impatient Foodie offers easy ways to spin off kale, chicken, fish, berries, and more into multiple meals, and offers home cooks a variety of inspiring vegetarian and vegan options. Unique, friendly, and entertaining, The Impatient Foodie provides the ideal foundation for thoughtful eating in a hectic, time-starved world. With her immensely popular Impatient Foodie blog, her profile at Refinery29, her degree in biomedicine, and her stunning beauty and charm, Elettra Wiedemann is the perfect spokesperson for this reassuring and helpful message.

        March 20, 2017
        Popular blogger Wiedemann’s debut cookbook contains 100 recipes for tight schedules and lazy cooks. Geared toward the true novice, instructions are given on “how to read a recipe” and how to use the 21 tools the author recommends as favorites. Recipes for savory items are plentiful, and are often from scratch; however, desserts rely on boxed mixes and store-bought ingredients to eliminate measuring. Even for the most impatient baker, measuring dry ingredients shouldn’t be that difficult or time-consuming, especially in light of such impressive main dishes as miso-braised eggplant, Chou’s vinegar chicken, and harissa lamb chops with mashed cauliflower. Most of the included recipes are approachable and easy to pull together. Photos. Agent: David Kuhn and Nicole Tourtelot.

        Fashion model Wiedemann is the founder of the blog ImpatientFoodie.com, which aims to marry ideals of the Slow Food movement with the realities of urban life. Her debut cookbook, written with New York food stylist Ficca, builds on this concept, offering simple preparations for a bounty of vegetables, fruits, and proteins. Recipes (e.g., vegan one-pot linguine with asparagus and lemon-oregano oil, impatient mussels in mushroom broth, apple brie bacon grilled cheese) are organized alphabetically by featured ingredient and tend to be light on prep time and cleanup. Some are also light on cooking; brownie ice cream cake, for example, is assembled from boxed brownie mix, Cool Whip, and other packaged foods. VERDICT Recommended for anyone exasperated by cooking. There's a lot of humor in Wiedemann's impatience, and many readers will be entertained by her acerbic comments on crowded farmer's markets, confusing food labels, laborious recipes, and useless spices.
