“Surprising no one, Molly has written a book as smart, stylish, and entertaining as she is.”—Carla Lalli Music, author of Where Cooking Begins
You’ve just won a ticket to a life filled with supreme deliciousness if you seek out, celebrate, and obsess over good food but lack the skills and confidence to make it at home. Molly Baz is here to teach you everything she knows and equip you with the tools to become a better, more efficient cook, and this book is a new kind of foundational cookbooks from her.
Molly breaks down the fundamentals of cooking into simple and straightforward recipes that deliver big flavor with minimal effort and a side of education, such as Pastrami Roast Chicken with Schmaltzy Onions and Dill, Chorizo and Chickpea Carbonara, and, of course, her signature Cae Sal.This isn’t your typical cookbook, though. Cook This Book is more than a collection of recipes; it teaches you the invaluable superpower of improvisation through visually compelling lessons on topics like the importance of salt and how to balance flavor, equipping you with all the tools you need to make delicious food every time.Throughout the book, you’ll come across dozens of QR codes that, when scanned with your smartphone’s camera app, lead to short technique-focused videos hosted by Molly, which will help you understand 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 assist you in doing just that, inspiring a new generation to enjoy cooking and take pride in serving a home-cooked meal, all while having the kind of unbridled fun and spirit that only Molly could inspire.
