OrangeReviewStarFor those wishing to cook healthy food in their own homes, this new book from best-selling author Bittman (How To Grill Everything), which treats 100 iconic dishes in three different ways—easy, vegan, and perfect for company—is especially welcome. For example, do you fancy a pasta bake but are limited for time on a weeknight, or are you a beginner with few kitchen tools? The "easy" version of any meal is ideal because most recipes take 30 minutes or less to produce. If a vegan pasta bake is your preference then the recipe is on the same page. The all-out, or perfect-for-company recipes are for those who wish to take their time and cook for pleasure, not survival. Bittman's approach is unpretentious and flexible, taking advantage of good, sensible ingredients and a reasonable number of kitchen equipment.
VERDICT With a thoughtful and global range of recipes and clear instructions using easily available ingredients, this cleverly conceived cookbook is a winner for all types of cooks, especially those wishing to enhance their skills.
