Busy (and) in the Kitchen
When you lead a busy life, the question of what to eat when you get home is something you’d rather someone else deal with – and that’s precisely what world renowned celebrity chef Curtis Stone has done. Taking frustration from the weekly menu and replacing it with fun, ‘What’s for Dinner’ provides home cooks with the inspiration, techniques, tricks and shortcuts necessary to create family friendly meals to satisfy all ages.
Cooking with Curtis
From motivating Mondays to thrifty Thursdays, Curtis Stone has cleverly crafted a selection of go-to dishes for every day of the week, highlighting 130 recipes that can be whipped up quickly and effortlessly, gathering some serious praise around the dinner table.
With many recipes able to be made in less than 40 minutes, those with a very busy schedule and very little time will be delighted with what they can dish out. While dinner party Saturdays can have you dishing out the likes of mushroom ragout on creamy gritz, your mid week meal keeps it time savvy. Delight all household members with Curtis’ sliders with red onion, marmalade and blue cheese.
Appealing to everyone from the kitchen novice to the well seasoned gourmand, Curtis’ simple yet sumptuous recipes take culinary inspiration from around the globe, evident in dishes such as grilled salmon with orzo, feta and red wine vinaigrette and salt baked russets with ratatouille. If you’re looking to amp up the exotica factor in your kitchen, why not try Curtis’ recipe for Asian crab cakes with mango chutney? To finish, no family dinner is complete without dessert, so indulge in delights like New York cherry cheesecake.
