Publisher Comments:

Owning your kitchen is about being in charge when you cook—understanding how flavors work together, how to improvise with ingredients you have on hand, and, above all, how to feel confident and stress-free when making meals. In Own Your Kitchen, Anne Burrell gets you in that groove by sharing the recipes she makes when she's relaxed and cooking at home.

Anne has designed these 100 recipes to get you comfortable with dozens of essential techniques—like how to create a perfect omelet, how to butterfly a chicken for an easy roast, and how to bake a focaccia to doll up any meal. Along the way, she offers priceless tips: such as what can be made ahead (like her garlic-ginger-soy-citrus marinade that can be used with just about anything or a freezer staple like fish stock) or how to coax flavor out of a chicken with a garlic rubdown.

More than anything, though, Own Your Kitchen will build your repertoire with impressive twists on classics like Carbonara Frittata, Olive Oil–Poached Salmon, Grilled Hanger Steak with anchovy-butter sauce, and—maybe best of all—Hawaiian Pork Roast. Anne will walk you through her seasonal faves, like Zucchini Cannelloni, Wilted Romaine Salad with Toasted Hazelnuts (great crunch!), and Pumpkin-Ricotta Pancakes with Chunky Apple-Raisin Sauce. When at the farmer's market, you'll keep in mind her Spring Veggie Stew with bright asparagus and sugar snap peas (or, as Anne suggests, any combo of spring veg) and the super easy Crispy Crunchy Kale Chips.

These are recipes that will work every time. And with Anne by your side, reminding you to set up, taste, season, check, and be patient, you'll also get in on the secrets (including tricks for bouncing back from mistakes) that she's picked up over the years in some of the best restaurant kitchens and from working with people trying to be better home cooks, just like you.

So, get comfortable in your kitchen. You own it!

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to her spectacular bestselling debut Cook Like a Rock Star, Food Network chef and host Anne Burrell shows you not just how to keep rocking in the kitchen, but how to cook like you own it.

Taking control in the kitchen means mastering flavors and constantly keeping an eye on what Anne calls "QC" (quality control). It starts with learning the power of great ingredients (how quality olive oil and salt can transform an everyday dish), understanding the tools in your kitchen, and getting your mise en place ready before diving into a recipe. Anne shows you how to apply these skills to a slew of delicious, high-brow/low-stress recipes that get you out of a cooking rut, so you can keep surprising yourself in the kitchen. POC (piece of cake)!

Try out your new skills with classic bistro fare, such as Grilled Hanger Steak, Fish and Chips, or simple dishes, like Mushroom Soup with Bacon, and Shrimp in Garlic Oil and Chiles. Master roasting with a Hawaiian pork dish, have fun with spices making chicken roti, for a casual bite there’s her Sicilian Tuna, Caponata, Provolone & Arugula Panino. Each dish—whether firsts, seconds, sides, brunch, sandwiches or desserts—is accessible yet teaches a range of techniques and embraces tantalizing flavors. And they all share Anne’s secrets to great home cooking.

Here is Anne at her most personal—complete with her enthusiastic, sassy approach to how to get the most out of ingredients and whip up irresistibly delicious dishes that she likes to cook at home. So cook these recipes, master them, and then you will OWN YOUR KITCHEN!
