If you can’t prep it, cook it, and sit down to eat it in less than an hour, chef and television personality Ryan Scott doesn’t want to do it. It’s just that simple.
One to Five is cooking for real life: master one basic recipe and learn to spin it into five quick, affordable, and crowd-pleasing dishes. Discover how Ryan’s killer marinade, a simple rotisserie chicken, or an easy slow-cooker roast can turn into soul-satisfying meals like carnitas, stuffed egg rolls, sliders, a Vietnamese salad, and a hearty stew.
From taco night to breakfast as dinner, this book is all about flexibility as Ryan invites home cooks to think creatively about cooking while using supermarket staples. He offers ingenious strategies, tricks, and guidance on stocking the freezer and pantry so that great-tasting meals are always ready at the drop of a hat.
One to Five makes cooking so simple that readers can eat a delicious home-cooked meal without the hassle – and have fun while making it.
This was a very cool little recipe book. Enjoyable to read and easy to follow. Filled with suggestions of items to keep in your freezer or pantry and with several ideas in ways to use them. There is also a section with essential kitchen tools and items to keep on hand (tinfoil, parchment paper etc.)
The concept was simple. On one page there would be a main ingredient (eggs, biscuit dough, veggies, meats, seafood etc) followed by five ways in which to use it. There is also a little “EXTRA CREDIT” bit at the end of each recipe with an idea or two on what to serve with the recipe. The recipes were simple to follow and the photos added a nice yummy touch.
