Cooking for one does not have to mean cooking for four to six and eating the same thing all week. Nor does it have to mean eating a bowl of cereal over the kitchen sink. This beautifully photographed book by Anderson, blogger at Girl Gone Gourmet, takes cooking for one to a new level. Among the highlights are Potato, Bacon, and Brie Frittata, BBQ Turkey Meatloaf with Zucchini Fries, and Sweet Potato Soup with Shrimp and Corn Garnish. Recipes such as Parmesan-crusted Chicken Cutlet with Avocado Tomato Salad include several dishes in one recipe to form a complete meal. The table of contents lists every recipe; the index lists recipe titles and main ingredients.
VERDICT Readers looking to have an elegant cooking-for-one experience will appreciate this book. The single cook looking to broaden their repertoire will also want to take a look.
