Cook Me | Sam Parish
Cook smart, not hard. This is a cookbook for cooks and eaters who want food stuffed to the brim with flavour that only requires a little effort. Instead of offering just one option for each recipe, there are three options for each recipe, making this a supremely versatile cookbook for busy people.
This is a cookbook will give you the freedom to choose. Thirty dishes cooked three ways, giving you 90 uncomplicated recipes with maximum flavour and minimum fuss. For each dish, Sam has three versions:
1. Slap it together: These are Sam’s ‘hack-style’ recipes with even more minimum fuss than usual. This one’s all about putting convenience and flavour first and getting you a result with the slightest effort required and cooking savvy, not hard and reaping the rewards in mouthfuls of deliciousness. A quick game’s a good game.
2. Go These are Sam’s ride-or-die, tried-and-true recipes that are on heavy rotation at her place and will never go out of style. From fish burgers to egg and shrooms on doorstop toast to flexi vegan banana bread (yes, totes a thing), they’ve been developed by Sam over the years to be the best of the best. The first recipe she reaches for when cooking the chosen dish. These recipes make Sam COOK, and she hopes to inspire you to do so as well.
3. Long game: These are Sam’s not-so-fast, not-so-casual recipes. Sometimes we have more time up our sleeves and want to go the whole nine yards. These recipes have elements that require a little more effort but are worth it for the result – and fear not! They still have a minimum-fuss approach to see us learning something new but not chained to the stove for seven hours. Cause let’s be honest, ain’t nobody got time for that.
From sandwiches to schnitties, cakes to crumbles, this is a cookbook for a new generation of cooks and eaters who want food stuffed to the absolute brim with flavour while also scaling in the effort required. This book solves that problem by saying, we get you’re busy, so here are some options. They are not giving one recipe for a burger but showing 3. This adds a human element to the book as it becomes a choice for the cook to fit into their lifestyle.
