my new favorite kitchen trick

No, it’s not the mandoline that we just bought, though I love that too. My new favorite kitchen trick is free, always different, and informative. It’s colorful, satisfying, and inventive. It’s getting cookbooks out of the public library.

We’ve had harissa-marinated chicken from Ottolenghi; tortilla española from Flour; and tiramisu from Jamie Oliver. We tried tuna tartare with a cucumber and poppy salad taken from Ottolenghi too. It’s been so fun to get new ideas, to cook from books instead of screens, and to lose neither money nor bookshelf space in the process.

I got the idea for this trick from my dear friend Michael, and now I can’t imagine turning back! Have you ever gotten cookbooks out of the public library? Would you ever do this?
