Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Baked potatoes for Ann

    • jenmacgregor18 on January 24, 2020

      This method makes the skins very crunchy. Excellent. Even left over & reheated, the skins retained a snap. I loved them.

  • Spaghetti with garlic, tomato, basil, and beurre tomate

    • Londonyankee on April 20, 2020

      Delicious and fast! Used cherry tomatoes, used less butter because I didn’t want it to be too high fat. I sliced the garlic because I tend to burn minced garlic. Quick and fresh. Used penne instead, and the portion size was just right.

  • Stir-fried beef with broccoli

    • averythingcooks on August 21, 2020

      This was good but I don't think it was better than the ATK version (100 recipes.....). The only changes I made were the addition of some sliced red onion & red/yellow peppers for more veg, a few good squirts of sriracha at the end to up both the flavour &heat and a final sprinkle of coarsely chopped cashews. We happily ate it over noodles but I'm not sure this version is going into regular rotation.

  • All-purpose 3-2-1 dough

    • averythingcooks on October 16, 2020

      I needed a quick pastry to cover some turkey pot pies and have wanted to try Ruhlman’s 3-2-1 formula for a while. Based on my needs today, I made 2/3 of the recipe - very easy to do as given quantities include grams....this time I used an equal mix of butter & vegetable shortening. It isn’t the easiest rolling pastry I’ve ever made but I baked a small test piece (habit with new pie dough recipes) and it is very flaky and crisp!

An indispensable new cookbook from James Beard Award-winning food writer Michael Ruhlman 

From Scratch looks at 10 favorite meals, including roast chicken, the perfect omelet, and paella—and then, through 150 recipes, explores myriad alternate pathways that the kitchen invites. A delicious lasagna can be ready in about an hour, or you could turn it into a project: try making and adding some homemade sausage. Explore the limits of from-scratch cooking: make your own pasta, grow your own tomatoes, and make your own homemade mozzarella and ricotta. Ruhlman tells you how. 
There are easy and more complex versions for most dishes, vegetarian options, side dishes, sub-dishes, and strategies for leftovers. Ruhlman reflects on the ways that cooking from scratch brings people together, how it can calm the nerves and focus the mind, and how it nourishes us, body and soul.
