On his popular television show, Sam Zien shows regular people how to make great meals that are long on taste and short on effort. Sam might not be Michelin rated, but his refreshing approach to cooking with basic ingredients, simple techniques, and equipment almost everyone has at hand makes cooking simple, fun, and satisfying. There's no foie gras, truffle oil, or papillote involved and it doesn't matter if you can't spell "hors d'oeuvre." There are no fancy techniques or rare ingredients here, just great tasting food that anyone can make.
"Awesome Recipes and Kitchen Shortcuts" makes it even easier with simple tricks for preparing great meals on the fly. Turn a roast chicken from the corner deli into a fake pulled pork sandwich. Keep pre-cooked pasta in the freezer and bust out a tub of pre-made pesto for an instant Italian meal.
