Before you get into the recipe part of the book, there is extensive information about nutrition, methodology in cooking, awesome gadgets to use, and all sorts of other stuff! This book does not provide 'quick and easy' basic recipes. It provides real recipes for goo, healthy food: food that balance proteins, carbs, fats and fibres and provides all the nutrients we need. Not only that, the recipes I've tried so far have all been delicious.
Where the Cook Smart book really stands apart from other recipe books though, is that it teaches you to maximise your efficiency in the kitchen. Through reading you can learn how to make food in such a way that you can produce a good qulaity two course meal in just 30 minutes. This doesn't mean zapping things in the microwave, ordering in, scrimping on quality or taste, or any other rubbish 'cheats'. The methods used go right down to time management (finding the most time to cook) and there is loads of clever advice and tips that will have you multi-tasking to the max!
I recommend this book to anyone who loves to eat but has little time to cook! It's great" :)
When I got this book for my kindle I expected a short cut manual, (bulk buy, freeze, grab sort of thing) what I didnt expect was an exceptionally well written book that is walking me through all the different stages. It explains what to buy, (seasonal if possible) how to prepare it efficiently, the correct utensils to use (very handy), what to flavour the dish with and how to present it ! Wow, I wish someone had bought this for me when I first got married. Smart cooking is all about using the time you have to get the best food you can produce. I found that it was compatable, with a few tweeks here and there, with my Slimming World diet because you are encouraged to cook from scratch and not fall back on convenience foods.
It does follow the mantra of low fat is best so be warned if you dont subscribe to that way of thinking, it isnt all best butter and olive oil by the cup although healthy fats are included. Lastly, as a relatively new vegan I was happy to see non meat meals included, although its no problem these days to easily substitute the meat anyway for a vegan friendly alternative and continue on with the recipe.
I enjoyed the author's fresh take on cooking (weeknight cooking, especially). The ideas is, basically, that busy people should approach cooking like any other recurrent activity in their lives: they should take steps to make it efficient!
These steps start from shopping and end with dosing the cooking time. Overall, I found this book to be a very helpful cooking guide for busy people, be they newbies at cooking or experienced cooks.
Most of what was written on the subject of quick cooking seemed basic common sense, but then I've been cooking for rather a long time. Probably of most use to those who are new to cooking, and doing it in a very limited timescale, or those trying to wean themselves off ready cooked instant meals that just need re-heating.
