From the Michelin-starred chef, Iron Chef America and Top Chef Masters contestant--a hilarious, self-deprecating, gorgeous new cookbook--the ultimate guide to cooking for one.
Anita Lo puts the "Lo" in alone. The life of a Michelin-starred New York City chef is a solitary one--there's not much time for dating or dinners with friends--so she's perfected the art of cooking for one. In this delightful cookbook, Lo presents 101 accessible, contemporary, and sophisticated recipes for home cooks, most of which take less than 30 minutes to make. Drawn from her childhood, her years cooking around the world, and her extensive travels, these are globally-inspired, restaurant-quality dishes from Lo's own repertoire. Think Steamed Seabass with Shiitakes; Smoky Eggplant and Scallion Frittata; Duck Bolognese; Chicken Pho; Slow Cooker Shortrib with Caramelized Endive; Broccoli Stem Slaw; Chicken Tagine with Couscous; and Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie--even a New England clambake for one. (And should you find yourself with company, fear not! These recipes are easily multiplied by two.)
