Ever wonder how fancy restaurants make fantastic gourmet food look so effortless and easy? They do it with the help of prep crews that show up at dawn and chop vegetables, mix sauces and prep all the ingredients. The chefs come in later and do their magic, creating meals in a fraction of the time it would have taken from scratch.
"Cooking With All Things Trader Joe's" is the cookbook that does the next best thing. Everyone knows about the great sauces, mixtures, marinated meats and other gourmet prepped items at Trader Joe’s. There’s a reason why it’s so hard to park there. By combining these prepped items with fresh ingredients, you can skip all the laborious steps to make creative gourmet meals quickly. Finally, with this cookbook in hand, the Trader Joe’s circle is complete.
The authors came up with the time-saving ideas when they realized they were just too busy to cook from scratch every night of the week. Even for a weekend dinner party, who wants to spend the time slaving over a stove instead of hanging out with the guests.
