Thoughtful cooking. Less waste. Incredible flavor. What's not to love?
Growing up with her mother's garden in the Catskills, author Alexis deBoschnek learned how to make every ingredient last, from slowly cooking tomatoes for sauce and infusing oil with the garden's aromatics, to pickling cucumbers by the dozen.
With To the Last Bite, she shares her lifetime of knowledge to ensure nothing goes to waste. Buy a whole chicken for a delicious Spatchcock Paprika Chicken with Carrots, then save the bones for a stock, which you can add to braised leeks with white wine and thyme. Her Greens Skillet Pie uses any herbs you haven't gotten around to in the crisper drawer.
Packed with stories and strategies to help you choose your ingredients wisely and use them well, this cookbook teaches you how to cook creatively, resourcefully, and, most importantly, deliciously.
