Why do we love the new Chopped Cookbook? Because it speaks to the everyday conundrum faced by the home cook: What’s for dinner?
This cookbook is all about inspiring home cooks to find creative ways to get dinner on the table with the ingredients they already have in their kitchen – don’t worry, no fish heads or gummy worms are involved. We’ve all been in that situation where it’s a weeknight, dinner needs to be on the table in an hour and we open the fridge to find turkey, pineapple and seafood seasoning. And we think, “What now?” The 180 recipes in this cookbook are all about crafting what you’ve got into something great – no special trips to the grocery store required.
