“[A] single person’s guide to cooking without compromise. This cookbook reframes cooking, which can seem like a chore, as a form of self-care.”—Library Journal
At a time when 31 million American adults live alone, Klancy Miller is here to show that cooking for one is something to embrace. While making single servings from other cookbooks means scaling down ingredients, adjusting cooking times, or being stuck with leftovers, Cooking Solo gives readers just what they need to make a delicious meal—all for themselves. Among the few other “cooking for one” books, this is the first by a hip young woman, whose vibrance and enthusiasm for cooking for herself comes through in the 100 attractive recipes like Tahitian Noodle Sandwich, Smoked Duck Breast Salad, Spicy Pork Burger with Coconut, and Mackerel with Lemon and Capers. Klancy also includes a chapter on entertaining at home, because being single still means having fun with friends.
“This is a smart, fun, user-friendly cookbook with great recipes for solo cooks. I love that Klancy encourages people to find their groove cooking for one and that she believes in sharing that same pleasure and delicious food with others.”—Marcus Samuelsson, award-winning chef-owner of Red Rooster Harlem and Uptown Brasserie“Taking inspiration from her travels, family, and day-to-day life, Klancy Miller has created a wonderful collection of recipes that will surely inspire you to prepare meals for yourself at home. Cooking for oneself is more rewarding than ever with this book open on your counter.”—Julia Turshen, author of Now & Again: Go-To Recipes, Inspired Menus & Endless Ideas for Reinventing Leftovers
