BWW Review: THE COLLEGE COOKBOOK is What Every Student Needs
The College Cookbook, published by Weldon Owen, is just what every student needs to have a delicious and nutritious diet when they are away from home. By now, most students have settled into their college routines and may be looking to enjoy better food choices than what is typically found around campus. With this book, students can avoid fast food, unhealthy snacks, and cafeteria food. Cooking with friends is great for get-togethers.
The cookbook has over 100 easy-to-follow, low-cost, and tempting recipes that will give students incentive to enjoy meal prep and cooking. We also like that all of the ingredients are both reasonable and accessible. The cookware needed is basic and can be found in most college dorm kitchens.
The College Cookbook is well organized for even the novice cook. And the photos by Aubrie Pick beautifully depict the dishes. The book starts with Cooking 101, and Kitchen Basics. There are chapters with mouth-watering recipes for Breakfast; Soups & Salads; Snacks; Dinner; and Desserts. There's also a nice group of recipes for side dishes that work well with any meal like rice and quinoa. Savory Vinaigrettes along with Sauces & Dips are ideal for garnishes or accents.
Here's just a few of the recipes that can make cooking and eating at college a great experience: Whole Grain Berry Muffins; Easy Cheesy Egg Bake; Ramen Upgrade; Taco Salad with Salsa Vinaigrette; Soy Glazed Edamame; Cheesy Olive Pull-Apart Bread; No-Bake Energy Bites; Beer-Baked Pulled Pork; The Ultimate Mac & Cheese; Party-Size Chili Con Carne; One-Pan Soy Glazed Salmon; Salted Chocolate Chunk Cookies; Puff Pastry Fruit Tarts; and Individual Nutella Souffles.
With The College Cookbook, preparing and presenting food becomes a pleasure for young adults. The students who use it may just treat you to a fabulous meal the next time you visit them or when they come home for a break.
The College Cookbook published by Weldon Owen is available wherever fine books are sold and retails for $19.99.
