Admitting ones eating habits is not the easiest task, many spend their time eating behind fridges, stocking up on Ramen or just hoarding convenient snacks with zero nutritional value. In this newly released book, The Kitchen Counter Cooking School, local writer Kathleen Flinn creates a project that will examine the eating habits of average women, while providing them with a toolbox of alternatives, teaching them the basics, educating them and teaching them the benefits of a home-cooked meal.
Read along as these women embark on a palate adventure, taking cooking classes to delve into a deeper world of food, learning that simple food can easily be made from scratch and that dollars can be stretched. Watch as these women flourish and nourish while picking up tricks from Seattle’s favorite foodies including Robin Leventhal and Thierry Rautureau.
Each chapter includes basic recipes for things like Blissfully Simple Chicken Stock, DIY Vinaigrette, Creamy Chocolate Frosting, Paella Valenciana and more. Now, even if you are familiar with making these foods, there is something about reading this book that will motivate you to make them again or better yet get you in the kitchen exploring the same night that you are reading. Get the book here or at your local bookstore and check out Kathleen Flinn’s website.
