Fewer ingredients, big-time flavors—that’s the magic of Big Little Recipes. Inspired by Food52’s award-winning column, this clever cookbook features 60 new recipes that’ll deliver wow-worthy results in five, four, three…or, yep, even two ingredients.
Put down the long grocery lists. Food52’s Big Little Recipes is minimalism at its absolute best…and most delicious. From chewy-dreamy oatmeal cookies to pasta sauce you’ll want by the gallon, this cookbook is action-packed with crowd pleasers, plus smart techniques (and plenty of tricks!)—showing just how much you can accomplish with essentials you can count on one hand.
It answers life’s important questions, like: Can long-winded classics like chili or eggplant Parmesan work for busy weeknights? Why, yes. Will chicken noodle soup taste, well, chicken noodle-y enough with just two ingredients? Absolutely. Does subbing in olive oil for butter in lemon bars really make a difference? You won’t believe your taste buds. With “Big Little Recipes” columnist Emma Laperruque by your side, you’ll learn how to make every single step count and every last flavor sing. (She’ll even prove that water—yes, water!—can be invaluable in everything from extra-tender meatloaf to veggie burgers.)
