Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Lemon roasted potatoes, chicken, and spinach with tzatziki

    • mjes on July 26, 2021

      Okay, I'd been rearranging bento boxes ... and the photo of this recipe resembled a bento box ...so of course in picking a recipe from this book to try ... The tzatziki recipe is quite acceptable but I prefer the slightly richer version of Ina Garten which adds a bit of sour cream. The sweet potato and checken roasted in lemon is, again, a solid recipe but much like many others. Side salad of baby spinach and kalamata olives, ditto. But the combination is a very nice portable meal to keep in mind.

  • Turkish poached eggs with eggplant on socca crepes

    • mjes on July 26, 2021

      I am a bit of a sucker for socca - and this thin version is quite different from what I learned in a baking class. I am equally a sucker for eggplant and for poached eggs. Hmm ... was there any chance I wouldn't love this, Actually, the herbed yogurt and smoked paprika oil transformed this from a collection of my favorites into a cohesive excellent dish. Definitely a recipe to recommend to friends as well as repeat.

From acclaimed cookbook author and award-winning blogger Allison Day comes Modern Lunch, a collection of 100 recipes that celebrate the midday meal.

Lunch shouldn't be an afterthought when it's such an important moment in our day: It's the opportunity to fuel, yes, but also to recharge for the rest of our busy day. Tired leftovers and overpriced takeout salads have encouraged people to stop caring about lunch, but luckily, with Modern Lunch, her third cookbook, Allison Day proves that making lunch can be both exciting and achievable for any appetite, budget and time constraint. She'll take home cooks on a high-noon feasting journey with both at-home and to-go meals, including salads, trendy jars, adult-appropriate lunch boxes, plates, picnics and platters. Through a clean, minimalist design, and showstopping photography, Modern Lunch showcases what today's set of brunch-goers and contemporary commuters look for: healthy, quick, Instagrammable feasts that will feed and satisfy--but also ignite a little office envy.
