It’s 6 pm, traffic was horrendous, you are exhausted, the kids are hungry, and you can’t stomach the same boring dinner! What could you do different tonight? It’s now time to experiment and thankful you just purchased Mark Bittman’s new cookbook Kitchen Matrix!
I have long been a fan of Mark Bittman. For a wedding present my mother gave me his How to Cook Everything book. I could not count how many times I have used that book. So I was beyond excited to get his new book Kitchen Matrix!
What I love about Kitchen Matrix:
- It’s beautiful pictures! They are absolutely gorgeous and will make you hungry just looking at them.
- Easy Layout
- Variety of Recipes
- Simple Recipes
- More than 700 Recipes
- Mix and Match
I view this book as an inspiration board and not necessarily a step by step book. So I would recommend a basic guide like How to Cook Everything and then Kitchen Matrix for more ways to mix up your favorite recipes.[bctt tweet=”Never Eat a Plain Salad again with Kitchen Matrix by Mark Bittman @bittman”]
So let’s say you have extra eggs that are needing to cooked soon, but are looking for something a little different… So flip to page 178, and you see Hard-Boiled Eggs +12 ways! Mark not only includes tips for cooking hard boiled eggs and peeling them, but twelve different recipes to find something new.
Here is the different recipes included for hard-boiled eggs:
- Basic Hard-Boiled Eggs
- Classic Pickled Eggs
- Beet Pickled Eggs
- Soy Pickled Eggs
- Classic Deviled Eggs
- Bacon and Deviled Eggs
- Rustic Deviled Eggs
- Curried Tomatoes Sauce Eggs
- Classic Tomato Sauce Eggs
- Smoky Tomato Sauce Eggs
- Egg Salad with Pickles and Dill
- Curried Egg Salad
- Waldorf Egg Salad
The main principle that Kitchen Matrix teaches us is to mix and match! Use what you have, and don’t be afraid to experiment.
