Adler, Tamar, (author.). Winner, Caitlin, (illustrator.).


Food waste is a serious issue today--nearly forty percent of the food we buy gets tossed out. Most of us look around the kitchen and struggle to use up everything we buy, and then when it comes to leftovers we're stuck. That's where Tamar Adler can help--her area of culinary expertise is finding delicious destinies for leftovers. Whether it's extra potatoes or meat, citrus peels or cold rice, a few final olives in a jar or the end of a piece of cheese, she has an appetizing solution. Here, in An Everlasting Meal Cookbook, she offers more than 1,500 easy and creative ideas to use up nearly every kind of leftover--and helpfully explains how long each recipe takes. Now you can easily transform a leftover burrito into a lunch of fried rice, or stale breakfast donuts into bread pudding. These inspiring and tasty recipes don't require any precise measurements, making this cookbook a go-to resource for when your kitchen seems full of meal endings with no clear meal beginnings in sight. Organized alphabetically and filled with foods across the spectrum--from applesauce to truffles and potato chip crumbs to cabbage--this comprehensive guide makes it easy to flip through so you can find a use for all types of unused food. Sensible, frugal, and consistently delicious, the recipes in An Everlasting Meal Cookbook allow you to prepare meals with economy and grace, making this a vital resource that every home cook needs.
