Description
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A thoroughly modern guide to becoming a better, faster, more creative cook, featuring fun, flavorful recipes anyone can make.
ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR: NPR, Food52, Taste of Home
“Surprising no one, Molly has written a book as smart, stylish, and entertaining as she is.”—Carla Lalli Music, author of Where Cooking Begins

If you seek out, celebrate, and obsess over good food but lack the skills and confidence necessary to make it at home, you’ve just won a ticket to a life filled with supreme deliciousness. Cook This Book is a new kind of foundational cookbook from Molly Baz, who’s here to teach you absolutely everything she knows and equip you with the tools to become a better, more efficient cook. 
Molly breaks the essentials of cooking down to clear and uncomplicated recipes that deliver big flavor with little effort and a side of education, including dishes like Pastrami Roast Chicken with Schmaltzy Onions and Dill, Chorizo and Chickpea Carbonara, and of course, her signature Cae Sal. But this is not your average cookbook. More than a collection of recipes, Cook This Book teaches you the invaluable superpower of improvisation though visually compelling lessons on such topics as the importance of salt and how to balance flavor, giving you all the tools necessary to make food taste great every time. Throughout, you’ll encounter dozens of QR codes, accessed through the camera app on your smartphone, that link to short technique-driven videos hosted by Molly to help illuminate some of the trickier skills. 
As Molly says, “Cooking is really fun, I swear. You simply need to set yourself up for success to truly enjoy it.” Cook This Book will help you do just that, inspiring a new generation to find joy in the kitchen and take pride in putting a home-cooked meal on the table, all with the unbridled fun and spirit that only Molly could inspire.

        January 4, 2021
        Recipe developer Baz delivers an exciting crash course in cooking fundamentals via 95 recipes that don’t “ask too much of the home cook.” The book begins with a list of “Molly’s Golden Rules,” which includes tips like “read the recipe first” and “season as you go,” and ends with Baz’s rundown of fundamental cooking techniques such as poaching, searing, sauteing, and roasting. In between are the recipes, organized by ingredients. Meat lovers will enjoy milk-braised chicken legs with bacon, beans, and kale, and a sumptuous tomato-braised brisket. Seafood options include seared scallops in curried butter, and there are plenty of pasta dishes, such as zesty orzo a limone. Desserts offer a black sesame shortbread and a sweet and salty miso apple tart. Baz’s tone is encouraging, and she packs in helpful resources, such as charts on texture and flavor, checklists to review recipe results, and lists for keeping one’s “arsenal of yummy condiments” stocked. Readers who don’t know their way around the kitchen will appreciate the QR codes that appear throughout, which link to video tutorials on such tasks as chopping onions and prepping shrimp. Novice home cooks would do well to have this on the shelf.

        Food editor and recipe developer Baz aims to teach people to become great cooks with a DIY culinary crash course built around the concept of efficiency. Baz's recipes are designed to teach; she also makes an effort to anticipate questions that might arise and addresses them in footnotes and how-to videos linked via QR codes. Created for home cooks, this book focuses on time management by detailing how and when to begin each step in a recipe, and it lists ingredients by their location in a typical grocery store, to simplify shopping. Chapters include an introduction, an overview on tools and pantry essentials, the foundations to "make food taste great," and sections dedicated to recipes for chicken, seafood, eggs, noodles, grains, salads, vegetables, soups, and snacks, among others. VERDICT This resource offers a range of recipes centered around animal proteins and complementary sides. With its DIY approach to culinary expertise, this is a great starting point for home cooks wanting to develop flavor and technique.--Gricel Dominguez, Florida International Univ. Lib., Miami
