A playful and delicious cookbook, from the host of ABC's "Food for Thought with Claire Thomas" and creator of the much loved food blog "The Kitchy Kitchen."
Every cook needs an arsenal of staples, whether for the perfect dinner party entree to wow a crowd, or throw-it-together lunches for lazy afternoons but we all know that the real fun comes in making basic recipes your own. "The Kitchy Kitchen" is tastemaker Claire Thomas's solution for amping up your everyday culinary routine, introducing her approach to her own kitchen: loose, personal, unfussy, and most of all, fun.
With new takes on classic favorites think adding farmer's market peaches to upgrade a BLT, spicing up tempura cauliflower with a zesty harissa sauce, or transforming basic red velvet cupcakes into decadent pancakes this cookbook is filled with fresh, produce-driven recipes for every skill set and occasion. It's your best friend and personal chef, all rolled into one. Gorgeously illustrated and peppered with stylish entertaining tips and quirky essays that will inspire you to take the recipes you love and make them new, "The Kitchy Kitchen" will make your life in the kitchen a little easier, a little more fabulous, and positively delicious.
