Piecemeal: A Meal-Planning Repertoire with 120 Recipes to Make in 5+, 15+, or 30+ Minutes―30 Bold Ingredients and 90 Variations is an interesting cookbook that features 30 basic components with 3 recipes using those components. Each component recipe makes enough to prepare all 3 recipes. Most of the recipes are quite easy, and can be made in less than 30 minutes.
For years, many cooks have made larger batches of foods, stored them in meal-size packets in the freezer, and saved time preparing meals with those components. This cookbook incorporates that same concept, but the base recipes are quite innovative and varied. The flavors are gathered from around the world, with Asian, Latin, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, American, and others featured. The recipes are written in the traditional manner with ingredients listed first followed by step-by-step instructions. The author has also included helpful notes at the beginning each recipe.
Beautiful, professional photographs of almost every dish are included, which makes this a nice cookbook not only to cook from, but also to curl up and read.
While the concept of batch cooking isn’t new, this book has lots of new ideas and new recipes using trendy sauces and flavors that will surely make meal preparation quick and delicious.
Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
