To call this book a cookbook is understated. The Kitchn by Sara Kate Gillingham & Faith Durand is so much more than a collection of recipes. In fact, the recipes don't even start until page 129. What you'll find in this book is everything you need to know to cook a meal from start to finish. Beginning with setting up your kitchen, what kind of cookware to use, when to get rid of cookware, how to keep your kitchen clean, storage solutions, growing food inside, organizing, and so much more.
This book is not only full of helpful hints, but gorgeous pages. I learned so much from this already and I've had my own kitchen for over twenty years.
Once you've got the basics down you can begin cooking. There are some pretty amazing recipes included in these pages. Sweet potato and caramelized onion hash with baked eggs. Roasted garlic and lemon hummus. Skillet-roasted whole chicken (the one I will try first!) And the end of the book tells you how to have a party from start to finish.
This is a pretty amazing book and it all started with The Kitchn blog.
