The paperback edition of Sally’s award-winning The Improvisational Cook is OUT IN THE WORLD as of this morning. The book was the precursor to ‘the improvised life’; apply the blog’s heart and practicality to cooking and you’ll get the gist. It’s a guide ‘in’ to cooking improvisationally, more freely and with what’s on hand. Chapters include How Improvising Works, The Creative Mind-Set, Accidents and the Unexpected, and Learning What Goes with What, along with a ton of mutable recipes and ideas for making them your own.
Our favorite reviews sum it up:
“Schneider weans home cooks off their training wheels and provides a springboard from which they can leap out of the box, craft their own distinctive dishes and let their new instinctive and creative juices flow.”
— Mario Batali, legendary chef and Food Network star
“Innovative . . . a delicious revelation.” — O, The Oprah Magazine
“What a triumph. One of the most gifted cooks I know thinks onto the page in a way that cossets the novice while inspiring the old hand to reach to new territory. You will build a reputation on this book and build the kind of confidence few know in the kitchen. Sally Schneider is the master of ease, imagination and style.”
— Lynne Rossetto Kasper, host of The Splendid Table, American Public Media
