Dreaming About Dinner with Ali Slagle
Recipe developer Ali Slagle’s debut cookbook makes cooking fun again. With minimal ingredients and maximum joy in mind, I Dream of Dinner (So You Don’t Have To) is completely dedicated to easy, flexible and innovative recipes for dinner tonight and every night.Ali has a desire for everyone everywhere to make great food, fast. This sentiment has set the stage for her debut spring-release cookbook. It’s peppered with no nonsense and completely delicious recipes so home cooks can use what they have and make what they want. Dishes like her Olive Oil-Braised Chickpeas (pg. 104) and Farro Carbonara with Brussels Sprouts (pg. 207) come together with fewer than eight ingredients and forty-five minutes.Organized by main ingredients like eggs, noodles, beans, and chicken, chapters include quick tricks for riffable cooking methods and flavor combinations. This way, dinner bends to your life, not the other way around. Whether in need of comfort and calm, fire and fun—directions to cling to, or the inspiration to wing it—I Dream of Dinner (so You Don’t Have To) is the only phone-a-friend you need. That’s because Ali, a home cook turned recipe developer, guides with a reassuring calm, puckish curiosity, and desire for everyone, everywhere, to make great food—and fast.A signed copy of Ali’s cookbook is included in this month’s CrateChef box. We can’t wait to see how our subscribers reinvent their pantry classics.
