Tiny Kitchen? No Excuses.

Gourmet Meals in Crappy Little Kitchens by Jennifer Schaertl

In her debut cookbook, Schaertl tackles 2 myths of gourmet cooking—one doesn’t need lots of space or a host of appliances. For example, she points out that Chantilly Cream was invented without an electric mixer. She writes from experience too. Her first job, as a dishwasher & working her way up to sous chef, was in a professional crappy little kitchen (CLK). Not only does she include useful advice on tools, techniques, layouts and pantries for CLKs, she also presents 130 recipes geared to preparation in CLKs. This book is recommended to anyone who has or may be working in a crappy little kitchen in the future. Reviewed by Wendell Barnett, Collection Management Librarian
