You know what makes a good cookbook? Pictures (in my elementary opinion?!). If I can see what the food is going to look like it just gets me more excited about making it. You know what makes a great cookbook? Multiple kitchen tours within the pages. Awesome pictures of beautiful kitchens that I could browse for literally hours. (I am a sucker for looking at pictures of beautiful homes. You could say I am passionate about beautiful, functional homes).
But The Kitchn Cookbook goes beyond pretty pictures and home tours. Before you even make it to the recipes the book covers a variety of topics: how to properly set up your kitchen to be the most efficient, smart storage solutions for small spaces, making your kitchen beautiful on a tight budget (renovations), the tools you need (and don’t need!) in your kitchen, how to properly care for and clean your kitchen (including an awesome cleaning schedule), stocking your pantry and cooking well, and the list could go on.
This is hands down one of the best cookbooks I have ever read. The recipes seem to range in difficulty, easy and quick to more time-consuming. There is a great variety, too (stews, salads, limeades, burgers, pho, etc.). This is one of those cookbooks you want to own. Thanks to Pinterest, we have access to thousands of recipes at our fingertips. This has caused me to whittle down my cookbook collection to just a few of my all-time favorites and The Kitchn Cookbook has made the cut.
This cookbook will have a permanent space in my kitchen. It’s both beautiful and inspiring and you should really pick up a copy for yourself!
