In her third cookbook, Seinfeld guides newbie cooks through their first steps out of Can t Cooksville. With her encouraging attitude, Seinfeld is a cheerleader for beginners and has created an inviting primer designed to end kitchen phobia and dependence on processed foods. Following an introduction psyching up cooks with less than zero experience, Seinfeld promises a fearless and fun approach. A well-illustrated section on basic kitchen equipment with instructional photos shows inexperienced cooks how to slice, dice, and prep citrus, onions, garlic, avocado, nuts, shrimp, and more. Main dishes like Your First Chili and Rosemary Chicken Under a Brick make for well-rounded, family-friendly meals. Multiple pasta dishes and a healthy Quickies section offer more no-fail fare. Scannable icons for smartphones and URLs connect cooks to mini-movies and online support, and Don t Panic recipe headers provide quivering cooks words of encouragement and simple reminders. There are useful charts outlining seasonal foods, meat temperatures, measure conversions, and tips for food storage.
