Milk Street Cookbook Collection

If you want to become a more confident, skilled cook, we’re big believers in cookbooks. Milk Street’s collection covers more than recipes—our books are packed with advice from the experts we trust most, guiding you on topics ranging from understanding cooking techniques to making the best of your equipment (like that multicooker you got as a gift) to successfully turning out globally inspired dishes.

In Vegetables we treat vegetables with respect. We traveled the world to find the best ways to treat vegetables, grains and beans with respect and with a fresh, lively approach, one that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. In Athens, we learned how winter vegetable stews could taste light and bright, not hearty and heavy. In Cairo, we tasted eggplant and potatoes that punched up flavor with bold pops of texture from whole spices. And in Puglia, Italy, we had a revelatory bite of zucchini enriched by ricotta cheese and lemon. ​
It’s not cooking. It’s Cookish. Cookish is a fresh take on fast food at home. Six ingredients. Minutes, not hours. Fresh, bold flavors for any night of the week. Here at Milk Street we make this possible by traveling the world to find new ingredient combinations and new cooking techniques that make Cookish possible. And these recipes are so simple that we say, “Make a Cookish recipe once and you can easily make it again, without the recipe.” And when we say big flavor, we mean it. This is the cookbook you have been looking for. Recipes that deliver big flavors fast, not with tricks or gimmicks, but with solid cooking techniques and flavor combinations from around the world. Big flavor in minutes not hours. That’s the promise of Cookish.
Now simple midweek suppers will taste like Saturday night. Ginger-Soy Steak, Salt and Pepper Shrimp, Hazelnut-Crusted Chicken Cutlets, Pasta with Seared Cauliflower and Garlic, and Cuban-Spiced Burgers. Milk Street has searched the world for simple techniques that deliver bold flavor in less time. Here, we present more than 200 solutions for bold weeknight cooking, showing how to make simple, healthy, big-flavor meals that come together in minutes using pantry staples and just a few other ingredients. Milk Street Tuesday Nights is organized by the way YOU cook. Some chapters focus on time—with recipes that are: fast (under an hour, start to finish), faster (45 minutes or less) and fastest (25 minutes or less).
125 Simple Weeknight Recipes from the World’s Healthiest Cuisine. So much more than fish and pasta, the true cooking of the Mediterranean is a lesson in how simple, healthy food can be prepared from almost anything. Spain, Italy and France and Greece are just the start. The cooking of the Mediterranean also includes Turkey and Syria, Tunisia and Morocco, Israel and Egypt, Bosnia and Algeria. With thousands of years of culinary history and hundreds of cuisines, the Mediterranean region has one thing in common: big flavors married to everyday ingredients that combine and transform quickly and easily. And though every recipe delivers big, naturally healthy flavors, the ingredient lists don’t go on forever. Nor does the cooking. It’s food you really can make for dinner, even if you start cooking at 6 p.m. and need dinner on the table in an hour. Real food for real people. This is not a diet cookbook, but it does offer naturally healthy recipes with big, interesting flavors.
The world is full of better ways to put dinner on the table and in The World in A Skillet, we’ve assembled our favorite recipes from our global travels, all of which can be made on top of the stove quickly and easily. Whether it's in a wok, a paella pan, a cast-iron skillet, a cazuela, or a donabe, every culture has its own version of a one-pan dinner; in the United States, that pan is most often a simple skillet. Here, you'll find 125 recipes adapted to skillet cooking with inspiration from cooks around the world.
The New Home Cooking comes to the Instant Pot! Milk Street Fast and Slow shows you how to make the most of your multicooker, with a host of one-pot recipes that show how to prepare the same dish two ways. For the quickest meals, use the pressure cooker setting to cut down on cooking time. Or if you prefer the flexibility of a slow cooker, you can start your cooking hours ahead. Our 304-page cookbook contains more than 125 recipes all shown in full color, and more than half the recipes can be made either fast or using the slow-cooker option on your Instant Pot.
You can be the best cook you know by following a handful of “new rules” in the kitchen. Use herbs as greens, not garnish. Stop stirring your polenta. Create creaminess without cream. Super-starch your pasta. Use less liquid for more flavor. Cook fish on one side only. Use baking powder in frittatas. Don’t purée your pesto! These simple, transformational principles will change the way you cook whether it’s Pasta with Sweet Corn, Tomatoes and Basil or Pan-Seared Salmon with Red Chili-Walnut Sauce or a Vietnamese Chicken Salad. With over 190 recipes and 75 New Rules for how to cook, your cooking will go from good to great. It will also be easier – less time and less prep – since the big, bold flavors of this new approach to cooking requires less time and technique to develop flavors.
