Dinner in One: Exceptional & Easy One-Pan Meals

Clarkson Potter. Mar. 2022. 256p. ISBN 9780593233252. $29.99. COOKING
New York Times food columnist Clark follows her best-selling Dinner in French with 100 recipes designed to cook entirely in one pot, pan, or dish, in under one hour. These weeknight-friendly dishes are grouped in chapters according to the way they’re prepared (skillet; Dutch oven; sheet pan; soup pot; Instant Pot). Readers will find fresh takes on soups and stews, pasta bakes, and plenty of roasted meat and vegetables. Clark also includes blueprint recipes for side dish favorites such as green salad, rice, couscous, and polenta. About half of the recipes are vegetarian, and some offer vegan variations. Clark builds flexibility into her recipes by suggesting substitutions for spices, herbs, vegetables, and cuts of meat. The laid-back dishes featuring roasted or baked fish will have particular appeal for home cooks who might normally be intimidated by preparing seafood.
VERDICT As always, Clark has home cooks in mind with this collection of streamlined, crowd-pleasing recipes; perfect for beginning cooks and readers looking to build a repertoire of sure-fire dinner options.
