A new meals-in-minutes cookbook from recipe developer, photographer, and blogger Kathryn Pauline! Based on the idea that one go-to component can anchor several meals, Piecemeal is designed to help a busy home cook prepare delicious meals simply, in 5+, 15+, or 30+ minutes.
This strategy-based cookbook features recipes for 30 transformational components—such as grilled corn, turkey meatballs, tzatziki, roasted grapes—each used in three different ways, for a total of 120 delicious and adaptable recipes. The featured components were selected for maximum performance: each is flavorful, storable, and versatile and can stand alone or be used in multiple ways.
Piecemeal presents a way for cooks to create a flexible repertoire of meals without doing a ton of work at one time. Prepare the component when you have some time, then use it to enhance or center meals throughout the week, even on your most hectic evenings. The three recipes that pair with each component are fully prepared, from start to finish, in as little as 5 minutes and no more than 1 hour (for a project recipe with a bit more prep).
With Pauline’s gorgeous photographs accompanying each of its smart, strategic, and delicious recipes, Piecemeal is, at its core, a master course in culinary riffing.
