PLG Cookbook Club eats & discusses The Nimble Cook: New Strategies for Great Meals That Make the Most of Your Ingredients
Hosted by Erin Orr
Led by PLG neighbor and blogger Erin Orr of the blog Big Sis Little Dish, the Cookbook Club in Prospect Lefferts Gardens comes together to create connection and build community through food. For November, the group will be cooking and bringing recipes from The Nimble Cook by Ronna Welsh, the owner and chef of Purple Kale Kitchenworks in Brooklyn. In this sweeping masterwork with 400 recipes, Welsh shows how to make varied, impromptu, economical, and delicious meals by coaxing the most flavor from common ingredients. The Nimble Cook teaches optimal prep methods, provides hundreds of “starting point” recipes to transform basic dishes into luxurious ones, and shows nimble cooks irresistible uses for parts that otherwise go to waste.
