Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chicken tagine with apricots, butternut squash and spinach

    • Jane on June 08, 2020

      I loved this and will definitely making again. I usually have all these ingredients on hand though in these days of quarantine cooking I had to sub preserved lemon for the olives and I didn't have cilantro for on top. Still very good!

  • Coconut-ginger rice

    • chawkins on August 22, 2020

      Perfect liquid to rice ratio. I don’t have coconut oil, so just use olive oil. The lemongrass and ginger and even the coconut taste were all subtle.

  • Singapore chicken satay

    • chawkins on August 22, 2020

      Very good. The cooking time was perfect. I subbed lemon juice for the rice vinegar. I used a ceramic ginger grater to grate both the ginger and the garlic, my sauce was smooth, not chunky as shown. Served with coconut-ginger rice

  • Chinese chili-and-scallion noodles

    • sarahawker on September 24, 2020

      This was a big hit. Followed a bloggers idea to add cabbage and carrots, shred cabbage (used bok choy) and place in bottom of colander. Drain hot pasta over top of vegetables and then mix with sauce per recipe. HUGE hit in my home. Did add fried egg and made this a full meal.

  • Miso-shiitake soup with napa cabbage

    • tarae1204 on January 29, 2021

      I made this tonight with every ingredient except wakame and I found it lacked depth of flavor. Might have been better using stock to replace wakame.

  • Caramelized pork with orange and sage

    • bwhip on October 29, 2020

      Delicious dish, with a great mix of sweet and spicy, and a lovely crunch from the topping. Instructions were very clear, and prep was simple. We’ll have this one again.

  • Soba noodles with asparagus, miso butter and egg

    • Lsblackburn1 on August 11, 2020

      I was in the mood for soba and found this recipe. Not mind-blowing, but tasty enough. A nice simple summer dinner.

  • Chocolate-orange tart

    • MissKoo on July 01, 2020

      Another winner. The crust is great, and what the recipe says is true. This truly is a crust that does not shrink when blind-baked. Almond flour adds nice flavor, easy to make in food processor, and can be made and frozen up to two weeks in advance. Chocolate-orange combo in filling is classic; just a hint of cinnamon and ricotta is not too heavy. Still, a rich dessert, so good one for sharing with several people. Would definitely make again.

  • Brown butter-cardamom banana bread

    • Running_with_Wools on November 15, 2020

      Absolutely delicious recipe. You make brown butter, and mix the cardamom into it along with all the liquids, then fold into the dry ingredients. It took 5 minutes to make. I made it gluten-free, and it turned out beautiful. I made a couple of high-altitude adjustments, and it did not cave in. The house smells amazing and everyone loved it. I used Shauna Server's little sugar trick on top to create the crispy sugar tiles.

  • Mexican chicken soup with tomatillos and hominy

    • Running_with_Wools on November 16, 2020

      I bought this cookbook after watching the T.V. show where the Milk Street gang cooked it. And I've now made the soup five times (partner asks for it every time we make stock). It is really layered with deep flavor, and absolutely delicious.

  • Spanish spice-crusted pork tenderloin bites (Pinchos Morunos)

    • Running_with_Wools on December 05, 2020

      I've made this two times now for my family, and it's very easy, and really delicious. Packed with flavor but not spicy -so my younger children can enjoy it too.
