Cooking at Home and a Smithey Wok GiveawayNovember 28, 2021 by Jenny
Enter our US giveaway to win a copy of Cooking at Home: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying About Recipes (And Love My Microwave) by David Chang and Priya Krishna and a Smithey wok.
Cooking at Home: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying About Recipes (And Love My Microwave) by David Chang and Priya Krishna teaches cooks of any level far more than to just follow a recipe. Note: Today there is a coupon on Amazon for $5.00 off the cost of the book – I am not sure when this offer will expire.
David came up as a chef in kitchens where you had to do everything the hard way. But his mother, one of the best cooks he knows, never cooked like that. Nor did food writer Priya Krishna’s mom. So Dave and Priya set out to think through the smartest, fastest, least meticulous, most delicious, absolutely imperfect ways to cook.
The recipes in this book are not set up typically. They are written in a narrative form with no separate listing of ingredients as you can see from our preview. My emotions keep waffling on this style. I absolutely love that we are getting Chang and Krishna’s recipes, but I am not very fond of digging through the text for a list of those ingredients even with them being highlighted in underlined green font. Then I waffle back to thoughts that this book is about teaching us to use our instincts in the kitchen and don’t mind the style at all.
After spending more time with this title, I am loving learning from these two great chefs. The style of the book is akin to them being in the kitchen next to you and letting you in on all their secrets. Beginning cooks will love the simplicity of the layout and experienced cooks will take in the tips and tricks to level up their own cooking style.
The Smithey wok is lightweight and a quality piece of cookware. In addition, not only is it a workhorse, it is a beautiful item to add to your collection. All of Smithey’s products look as good as they perform. See these posts for other Smithey products: Oval roaster, Cast iron griddle, Cast iron chef’s skillet.
Right now Smithey is having a Black Friday sale – no code necessary. Purchase certain products to receive free products such as a Smithey ornament, spatula, or 6 inch skillet (or even all three!). Act quick if interested – this deal may expire soon.
