If you’re someone who has leftovers from time to time, you may want to consider picking up a copy of The Everlasting Meal Cookbook: Recipes for Leftovers A-Z by Tamar Adler. This cookbook is organized into chapters on different leftovers, such as vegetables, fruits and nuts, breads, dairy and eggs, beans and rice, seafood, meat and tofu, dough and noodles, salads, sauces and dips, pickles, etc., drinks, snacks, and sweets. That seems to cover about everything that anyone could have leftover. Items contained in these chapters are listed, and there are recipes and ways to use up whatever you have.

Unfortunately, there are only illustrations, and no photographs. It is not a book to peruse and find fun recipes to prepare for a special meal or for a fun family dinner; rather it is one that cooks will refer to in order to find something to do with whatever happens to be available.
This is more of a reference book rather than a cookbook, and as such is full of good information that will be useful and save money on meals.

The recipes aren’t in traditional recipe format; they aren’t difficult to follow, but not as most of us are used to. It isn’t one of those cookbooks to curl up in a corner and read. It does have some good ideas to use up rather than throw out small or larger amounts of ingredients or dishes.
All told, this is a good reference to have on hand.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
