Serve Yourself: Nightly Adventures in Cooking for Oneby Joe Yonan
Synopses & Reviews
A book for single, food-loving cooks, with 100 recipes that deliver flavorful, globally inspired, and unfussy meals, all scaled to serve one.
As the Cooking for One columnist for the Washington Post and the head of a single household, Joe Yonan knows a thing or two about the takeout doldrums and the challenges of creating practical “serves 1” dinners that meet the standards of the avid and engaged eater. His debut cookbook celebrates the flexibility of single life and the freedom to cook the foods you crave when you crave them. Recipes include inventive dishes such as Wine-Braised Chicken Thighs with Olives, Prunes, and Almonds, Spicy Almond Noodles with Edamame, Cochinita Pibil Tacos with Habanero Salsa, and Yogurt Parfait with Rhubarb-Ginger Sauce and Strawberries, all of which are a snap to make and immensely satisfying to eat.
The Washington Post "Cooking for One" columnist shares 100 recipes scaled for a single serving, in a casual guide that incorporates international flavors and includes such options as Spicy Almond Noodles With Edamame and Five-Spiced Duck Tacos With Plum Sauce. Original.
