Product description


Small Victories is so lively, so encouraging, and so filled with easy solutions that it's the perfect book for someone who loves food but is nervous in the kitchen. I'll be giving it to every young cook I know. -Ruth Reichl

"Julia Turshen cooks exactly the way I like to eat: simply, eclectically and with a lot of flavor. Her book is a perfect guide to countless delicious dishes that are both interesting and imminently do-able."-Dana Cowin

"As practical as it is beautiful, this book is primarily meant for the kitchen novice. But the recipes are so intriguing and enticing that experienced cooks will be tempted. Each carefully thought-out and explained recipe is followed by delicious riffs."-Mimi Sheraton

"Small Victories by the wonderful Julia Turshen will make you fall deeply in love with her simple and achievable recipes, whilst teaching you the importance of mastering basic techniques that make us all better cooks!"-April Bloomfield

"Julia Turshen always knows exactly what I want to eat. She has the kind of cook's intuition you can only gain though years of focus and passion. Her honest, inspired recipes have reinvigorated my cooking routine and made Small Victories an invaluable addition to my kitchen library."-Gail Simmons

" An inspiring addition to any kitchen bookshelf" Real Simple

"Electric with positive energy"-- The New York Times Best Cookbooks of Fall 2016

"The title of this book comes from the idea that learning to cook is a series of small victories: tiny lessons that, in sum, form a culinary education. These include concepts like putting a damp towel under a cutting board to keep it from moving while you chop, or freezing pesto in ice cube trays for easier use. Who couldn't use to learn a new trick or two?" Epicurious

"Small Victories is a chatty primer for the hesitant or unconfident cook but gives as much pleasure to those with years of kitchen experience. Rich in ideas, and far from basic in its span of recipes, this is a book that earns a place on any shelf."-Nigella Lawson

"Small Victories is precisely the kind of book that I can give to two kinds of people: to my non-cooking friends to let them know they can build their game, and to my professional chef friends to prove that there is always more to learn and that simple doesn't mean dumbed-down."-Mario Batali

Product Description

I can't wait to cook my way through this amazing new book, Ina Garten writes in the foreword to this cookbook of more than 400 recipes and variations from Julia Turshen, writer, go-to recipe developer, co-author for best-selling cookbooks such as Gwyneth Paltrow's It's All Good, Mario Batali's Spain...on the Road Again, and Dana Cowin's Mastering My Mistakes in the Kitchen. The process of truly great home cooking is demystified via more than a hundred lessons called out as "small victories" in the funny, encouraging headnotes; these are lessons learned by Julia through a lifetime of cooking thousands of meals. This beautifully curated, deeply personal collection of what Chef April Bloomfield calls "simple, achievable recipes" emphasizes bold-flavored, honest food for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. More than 160 mouth-watering photographs from acclaimed photographers Gentl + Hyers provide beautiful instruction and inspiration elevate this entertaining and essential kitchen resource for both beginners and accomplished home cooks.
