the kitchn cookbook review

From Apartment Therapy’s cooking site, The Kitchn, comes 150 recipes and a cooking school with 50 essential lessons, as well as a guide to organizing your kitchen–plus storage tips, tool reviews, inspiration from real kitchens, maintenance suggestions, 200 photographs, and much more.

“There is no question that the kitchen is the most important room of the home,” say Sara Kate Gillingham and Faith Durand of the beloved cooking site and blog, The Kitchn.

The Kitchn offers two books in one: a trove of techniques and recipes, plus a comprehensive guide to organizing your kitchen so that it’s one of your favorite places to be.

I am a frequent visitor to the kitchn website and wasn’t sure what to expect when I selected this book. It arrived today and I was quite surprised when I got into the book. I ended up spending a good hour going through the book.

There are a ton of useful tips and ideas given in the book. This would be the perfect book for a first time cook to use for setting up their first kitchen. From taking care of your kitchen to meal planning and recipes, they cover just about everything you could wonder about.

The recipes in the book aren’t mind blowing but are great for beginners. Nothing overly difficult and enough variety that I even found some things I’d like to try.

Overall I don’t know if this is a book that I would give to an experienced cook. It would however be a fantastic first book for a college student or new homeowner.

I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.
