Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Crispy Brussels sprouts with prosciutto chips

    • anya_sf on January 12, 2020

      My cast iron skillet is 12" wide, so I was able to cook 1/2 batch at a time. However, the Brussels sprouts did not get tender enough for my taste in the stated cooking time - perhaps they were too large. I added a couple of tablespoons of water, covered the skillet, and steamed them for a couple of extra minutes, which was perfect. The lemon juice and prosciutto chips made the sprouts taste absolutely fantastic.

  • Easy bastardized ramen

    • anya_sf on January 09, 2020

      I prepared the soup base 2 days ahead, making this an easy weeknight dinner. Toppings were the eggs, cooked baby bok choy, corn, nori, cilantro, black sesame seeds, scallion greens, sesame oil, and chili garlic sauce. The baby bok choy was unseasoned, but next time I'd cook it in salted water at the very least, because the broth - while seasoned enough on its own - wasn't enough for the greens. I would also slightly oversalt the broth next time. Otherwise, my family enjoyed this easy version of ramen.

  • Baked turkey, mac, and cheese

    • anya_sf on January 07, 2020

      Super decadent but really delicious. I used sharp cheddar, comte, and TJ's "Tuscan" cheeses. I attempted to make the recipe slightly less fattening by using 5 Tbsp butter and lowfat milk in the sauce, 1 Tbsp butter for the panko, and drizzling with only 1/4 cup cream. The arugula salad (my bag was 7 oz) definitely helped balance the rich casserole.

  • Pasta with sausage, lemon, and parsley

    • anya_sf on January 17, 2020

      I just had 13 oz sausage, which seemed like enough. I didn't realize I was almost out of fennel seed, so I only had 1/2 tsp; next time I'll use the full amount. The large amount of lemon zest and juice really boosted the flavor of this pasta dish. My family enjoyed it a lot. We had broccolini on the side, but next time I'll probably just add some veggies right in the pasta.

  • Malaysian chili shrimp

    • anya_sf on January 10, 2020

      I used 1 lb shrimp but the full amount of sauce so there was enough for some steamed broccoli on the side. This dish tasted pretty good for very little effort.

  • Turkey meatloaf with a block of sharp cheddar

    • anya_sf on January 12, 2020

      Some of the sauce dripped off of the meatloaf during baking and burned in the pan, but didn't affect the meatloaf itself (and, thankfully, washed off easily since the pan was oiled). Despite the meatloaf "walls", a tiny bit of cheese oozed out of the sides, but most of it stayed nicely encased. I'm not sure what percentage fat my turkey was (but definitely not 99% lean) - it seemed a "medium" color and worked here. The meatloaf was moist, juicy, and absolutely delicious. The cheesy middle (I used Cabot extra sharp white cheddar) was like an amazing bonus.

Publishers Text

Antoni Porowski, the food and wine guru on Netflix's sensation Queer Eye, meets people where they live—literally. With appealing vulnerability, he shows cooks of all levels how to become more confident and casual in the kitchen. The verve and naturalness of his approach earned raves from Food & Wine and Bon Appétit to GQ and the New York Times, which noted his dishes prove that “sometimes simple is anything but simplistic.”

Some of the recipes in this book are weeknight healthyish meals, while others are perfect for off-the-cuff entertaining. Visual stunners, they’re often composed of fewer than five ingredients. Whether Bastardized Easy Ramen; Malaysian Chili Shrimp; Roasted Carrots with Carrot-Top Pesto; or Salty Lemon Squares, all are visual stunners and can be carried off with panache, even by beginners.
