Library Journal Review

Turshen's (Feeding the Resistance; Small Victories) latest cookbook organizes 150-plus recipes into menus for a variety of occasions-Card Night Enchiladas, Brunch for a Crowd, a Middle Eastern Dinner Outside-and provides innovative ideas for using leftovers; e.g., making egg salad from deviled eggs or French toast using Vietnamese iced coffee. In addition to recipes for dishes such as tortilla soup with the works, super crunchy lime-y salad, and easy pumpkin and olive oil cake, there are tips and tricks for preparation and cooking. Each menu provides a time line for steps that can be taken up to a month, three days, one day, or a few hours ahead or at the last moment. The book concludes with useful lists such as Seven Things To Do with Cooked Rice, Seven Things To Do with Not-So-New Produce, and Seven Great Things To Delegate. VERDICT No one is better than Turshen at coming up with unpretentious, delicious, and approachable recipes for home cooks of varying skill levels. An essential purchase for circulating cookbook collections. [See "Editors' Fall Picks," LJ 8/18.]-Stephanie Klose, Library Journal © Copyright 2018.
