To the Last Bite: Recipes and Ideas for Making the Most of Your Ingredients by Alexis deBoschnek is very timely, since most of us don’t want to waste food and this book teaches how to use everything while still preparing fabulous meals. How often do we purchase ingredients, use part of them, and let the remainder go to waste? This cookbook has mouthwatering solutions which will not only give us ideas to use up those ingredients, but make some new dishes that everyone will like.

One very good thing is that at the end of each recipe, the author lists other recipes that use the leftover ingredients; and it goes on and on, like a chain reaction.

The recipes are such that there is something for everyone; they are very appealing, and not just for same-old-same-old dishes. These recipes are unique enough to make dinnertime more exciting without seeming too gourmet or outlandish. The recipes are written in traditional form and are easy to follow. Most call for standard ingredients that are available at any large grocery store, and it’s a real bonus that there are enough good dishes that you will use up the ingredients rather than store them in the fridge until they go bad. You’ll like knowing that you can use up the entire tub of ricotta cheese or sour cream, as well as the jar of olives, or produce that spoils quickly. There are also beautiful photographs.

All told, this cookbook has recipes that are worth making, are delicious, and eliminate waste and those furry unknown ingredients that seem to be stuck in the back of the fridge.
