MILK STREET: COOKISH. Copyright © 2020 by Christopher Kimball.In Cookish, Christopher Kimball and his team of cooks and editors harness the most powerful cooking principles from around the world to create 200 of the simplest, most delicious recipes ever created.

In each of these recipes, big flavours and simple techniques transform pantry staples, common proteins, or centrepiece vegetables into a delicious meal. And each intuitive recipe is a road map for other mix-and-match meals, which can come together in minutes from whatever’s in the fridge.

With most recipes taking less than an hour to prepare, and just a handful of ingredients, you’ll enjoy:

  • Pasta with Shrimp and Browned Butter
  • West African Peanut Chicken
  • Red Lentil Soup
  • Scallion Noodles
  • Open-Faced Omelet with Fried Dill and Feta
