MY PERFECT PANTRY, by Geoffrey Zakarian, is a wealth of down-to-earth information. Zakarian puts together an amazing base of fifty basic ingredients that you can have ready in your pantry to create yummy home-cooked meals at the drop of a hat.
You may recognize Zakarian from different tv shows. He’s a judge on CHOPPED, competes on IRON CHEF AMERICA, and talks about food on THE KITCHEN. How could you miss him. He’s all over the place.
Zakarian begins his book with a note to the home cook. He explains how fifty essential and basic items that you should stock in your pantry, will help you put together quick, easy, and delicious meals every time. Then he moves on to a group of foundation items: spices, herbs, powders, and oils. Then on to the big list: 50 essential pantry ingredients and recipes. MY PERFECT PANTRY, is considered to be one of the BIG cookbooks of this season. You will quickly see why.
What a great gift idea for the new cook. Or for anyone who loves to create delicious meals.
MY PERFECT PANTRY, may not be the flashiest cookbook on the shelf but, it may very well end up being the most used one!
