Kitchen Hacks: How Clever Cooks Get Things Done

We rated this book:


The word hack has taken on a very negative connotation. However, in the case of this book, it doesn’t mean an unauthorized use, but rather using something in a way that is different from its intended use. The book is organized in twelve chapters, covering such topics as cleaning, organizing, food preparation, food storage, last-minute problems fixes, basics, substitutions, and much more. Tired of having trouble getting strips of bacon apart? There’s an answer for that. Only have one loaf pan, but you are making three loaves of bread? There’s a hack for that. Do your sausages curl during grilling and don’t fit into the bun? There’s an easy to to keep them from making a curve. There are hundreds of clever ideas in this little book, and, for those who enjoy time in the kitchen, it is just plain fun to read through. The sheer number of clever ideas is mind-boggling. Every hack has a short, simple write-up, and many of them are accompanied by nice line drawings to clarify the written instructions. The index in the back is very complete and easy to use. This book is really a must-have for every kitchen.
