The Hip Girl's Guide to the Kitchen: A Hit-The-Ground Running Approach to Stocking Up and Cooking Delicious, Nutritious, and Affordable Meals Cover

 

Staff Pick

Parents: Buy this for your teen grads. And then, after your kids start showing you up in the kitchen, buy a copy for yourselves, 'cause you'll learn something from it!

I can't emphasize enough how much helpful knowledge Kate Payne has packed into this book. You expect tips, hints, and the basics of cooking, which you get. But there is also nutritional information (which the kids will need after they get tired of living on Cheetos and beer during the first few months of being on their own). My favorite chapter: "Methodology and Mad Skills: Learning How to Cook without Books or Your Laptop."

Publisher Comments:

The author of The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking shows you how to love your kitchen and learn to make creative, delicious food without breaking your budget.

You can become a confident cook — even if the drawer with the take-out menus is the only part of your kitchen you currently use! Kate Payne shows you how to master basic cooking techniques — boiling, baking, and sautéing — and simplifies the process of fancy ones, like jamming and preserving, dehydrating, braising, roasting, infusing, and pickling. With this straightforward and fun guide, you can stock up your kitchen with the ingredients, tools, and appliances you'll actually use. You'll also learn how to decode recipes and alter them to make them gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan.

The Hip Girl's Guide to the Kitchen includes advice and instructions on how to make both classic meals and foods that are typically bought, such as yogurt; ice cream; flavored salt; oil and vinegar infusions; kimchi; aioli; jam; granola; bread; and fruit leather — even liqueurs, iced teas, and vegetable juices. With fun line drawings, sidebars full of tips and tricks, and lists of resources, Kate Payne sets you up for success and shows you how to unlock your inner kitchen prowess.
