The Shortcut Cook: More than 60 classic recipes and the ingenious hacks that make them faster, simpler and tastier

It’s a myth that to make the very best versions of classic dishes, they have to be prepared from scratch.

But home cooks have not always been allowed the same privilege, and are often made to feel guilty about taking the easy route.

From her extensive experience, Rosie Reynolds has distilled over 60 much-loved classic recipes, such as eggs Benedict, spaghetti and meatballs, and lemon meringue pie, and applied every smart, time-saving tip, flavour boost and genius twist that she has learned along the way to produce failsafe recipes with no compromises.

This book is here to make your life in the kitchen bolder, brighter, and a whole lot easier. And this food isn’t trend-led: it’s tried and tested, world-over favourites that people love to eat and aspire to cook—but ready in a flash. (more…)

Milk Street Tuesday Nights Mediterranean

Mediterranean cooking is so much more than olive oil, grilled fish, and just-harvested vegetables. It is a diverse cuisine that encompasses the cultures and traditions of Southern Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. The food is direct, simple, and honest. It is proud to be served without disguise or embellishment.

Every Tuesday Nights recipe delivers big flavour, but the cooking is quick and easy. Each of these 125 Mediterranean dinners is ready in under 45 minutes, and many take just 20 minutes start to finish. Dishes include:

  • Green Shakshuka
  • Spicy Egyptian Eggplant with Chickpeas and Herbs
  • Bulgur Salad with Summer Vegetables and Pomegranate Molasses
  • Harissa-Spiced Pasta and Chicken with Green Beans
  • Greek Spanakorizo with Shrimp
  • Spanish Ribeye with Green Olives and White Wine.

The recipes are organized by how you cook, with some chapters focused on time—Fast (45 minutes), Faster (35 minutes), and Fastest (under 25 minutes)—while others dive into themes such as Hearty Vegetable Mains, Supper Soups, and Flat and Folded—including pizza, flatbreads, pita sandwiches, and panini. Many of the recipes require only one piece of cookware, and they all are built from pantry staples. Dinner? Solved—every night of the week.
