The Tiny Kitchen Cookbook: Strategies and Recipes for Creating Amazing Meals in Small Spaces

Storey. Sept. 2021. 224p. ISBN 9781635862874. $19.95. COOKING
From her boat’s galley kitchen (where she has only a 2-by-3 feet countertop), food writer and chef Mahle offers a new take on cooking in a small space. She aims to help home cooks love even the tiniest kitchens, by emphasizing the importance of proper organization, offering space-saving tips for storage and multi-use equipment, and (for oven-less readers) demonstrating ways to cook with just a hot plate or toaster oven. Here, meal planning means buying smaller amounts and shopping more often, and one-bowl recipes reign supreme (like Mahle’s watermelon, cucumber, feta, and mint salad). There are substitutions and workarounds for many recipes; ratios for scaling up to feed a crowd (with ginger-blackberry crème brûlée, for example); and bright photography featured throughout. Mahle’s reassuring voice will guide home cooks along the way.
VERDICT An encouraging collection of meals for a variety of occasions, and a great help for readers with small kitchens.
