Short Synopsis
How to cook flexibly and fight food waste, with eighty recipes and 150 ideas to use up what you have.

Full Synopsis
You're standing in front of your refrigerator, a week after your last trip to the supermarket. You've got a bunch of random veggies, some wrinkly fruit, near-expired milk, and those pricey fresh herbs you bought for that one recipe. For a split second you picture yourself throwing everything away and ordering takeout.

But instead . . . you pick up this cookbook. You're saving food, shrinking that grocery bill, and learning some key skills for making the most of what you have. It's exciting to be able to create new dishes and waste less food, and most importantly—a delicious dinner is on the table!

Perfectly Good Food is a book for those moments everyone has, whether you cook for one or a whole household. Chock-full of ingenious use-it-up tips, smart storage ideas, and infinitely adaptable recipes, this book will teach you: why smoothies are your secret weapon; how to freeze (almost) anything; and why using your senses in the kitchen is more important than so-called shelf-life.

Written by the chef-sisters behind Boston's acclaimed Mei Mei Dumplings, this is a crucial resource for the thrifty chef, the environmentally mindful cook, and anyone looking to make the most of their ingredients.
