I received a DIGITAL Advance Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review From the publisher, as I do not regurgitate the contents or story of books in reviews, I let them do it.A simple guide to one of life s most essential skills cooking New to the kitchen Living on your own for the first time Don t be intimidated This useful guide has everything you need to cook yourself real meals with real food Centred around 10 basic lessons to get you comfortable in the kitchen, this book will get you whipping up nutritious meals, satisfying snacks, and simple desserts for you and your friends in no time Also included are notes on knife skills, essential and nonessential cooking tools, and stocking your pantry This is your go to guide for cooking basics.Fifteen years back when I returned to university I wrote a weekly column in their newspaper about cooking for college students as there is life beyond ramen But man, I love ramen I have even read cookbooks about ramen being made intoedible meals Chrissy Teigen s Ramen Salad is to die for This book reminded me of my columns as it went from scratch inways than one about how you CAN cook and cook well It goes beyond the fear and takes you to a comfort zone The equipment list is daunting, though start small with basics and really think if you need something I have never used a salad spinner in my life The book is very well written and presented and the photos are Pavlovian as they made me drool This would be a PERFECT gift for any student in your life, or anyone starting out on their own outside of mom and dad s house I have ordered four copies for nieces and nephews and one for my 55 year old sister Side note I highly recommend an InstantPot , though, for any student or young adult as you can cook pretty much everything from soup to nuts in it and I use mine on almost a daily basis. I actually have my chef s training but very little kitchen space so it works wonders for me I even make popcorn in it The book is marketed for college kids, but perfect for any beginner cook I picked it up for my kids ages 6 12 to use as a guide for cooking on their own It has 5 basic recipes per category with a good variety Instructions are good, butpictures would make it even better. As a Teen Librarian I love finding books to add to my Adulting suggestions list Prep is the newest addition to that arsenal Morford, a mother of 3, wanted to ensure her kids knew how to cooking before they are on their own Morford tackle this by breaking down cooking into 10 sections, focusing on 5 recipes per section The idea is to master the technique in each recipe and then use it in other recipes or areas of cooking Recipes cover all meal times breakfast, lunch and dinner and components such as mains, salads, sides and one dish options The format is easy to follow and the organization put into this is well thought out The intro section includes measurement conversion charts, cooking style definitions and how to tips on cutting and prep Morford includes a great basic list of what kitchen equipment is needed to complete each recipe and includes a listing for each individual recipe.Prep is a brilliant, non intimidating guide to cooking via skill building I would recommend this to beginner cooks and anyone who may need a refresher or reintroduction to cooking basics.I have received a ARC from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review. This is a friendly cookbook for the beginner The print is easy to read and the photos make the food look delicious Each recipe has helpful sidebars that list not only the ingredients needed for a recipe but also the equipment needed Some sections start with basic instructions such as how to cook dried beans and then has suggestions for the many things you can make with a big pot of beans I made a couple of the recipes and they came out well A pretty good basic little cookbook that would make a nice gift to someone starting out cooking on their own. Beautiful Simple Appealingtl dr Easy recipes with attractive graphicsThis is supposed to be a cookbook for college students, and I am thinking of getting it for soon to be graduates I know But, I found this perfect for my middle school kids Teaching your kids to love eating is easier than teaching them to care for themselves This book is so beautifully made, particularly with the graphics that look like linocuts It feels very grown up, but gives simple info Frankly, plenty of grown ups could enjoy this book It also does a great job of cooking with real, affordable ingredients I will be getting this book for my little ones Thanks to NetGallery for an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I am reviewing this book for Katie Sullivan Morford, Roost Books, and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest reviewAn excellent book for those living by themselves for the first time and who are not skilled in the kitchen It goes back to basics to start with and explains terms used, useful equipment and how to do simple things such as chopping onions Then moves onto recipes which you can adapt to suit your own tastes a bit of a challenge for those not skilled in this department It is definitely a book for a newbie as the recipes contained in here are those most of us carry around in our heads. This is a fabulous starter cookbook, filled with appetizing, low fuss, recipes The layout is clean and pleasing and the pictures are appealing The recipes have just the right amount of detail to be thorough, straightforward and not overwhelming and the introduction and notes are helpful and add value to the text I think this would be a good cookbook to use with a tween or teen who is learning to cook at home, as well.I received a digital arc from Edelweiss, but I will probably buy a hard copy for my family. ^FREE ⇴ Prep ↛ A Simple Guide To One Of Life S Most Essential Skills CookingNew To The Kitchen Living On Your Own For The First Time Don T Be Intimidated This Useful Guide Has Everything You Need To Cook Yourself Real Meals With Real Food Centered AroundBasic Lessons To Get You Comfortable In The Kitchen, This Book Will Get You Whipping Up Nutritious Meals, Satisfying Snacks, And Simple Desserts For You And Your Friends In No Time Also Included Are Notes On Knife Skills, Essential And Nonessential Cooking Tools, And Stocking Your Pantry This Is Your Go To Guide For Cooking Basics
