    1. This is an awesome book. I've been wanting to know more chef-y sort of "oh, if I want to make something that's like this, I need to do more X." kind of stuff--the stuff that appears instinctive when someone knows it but is a complete mystery to those who don't. I'm at the point where I can make a lot of things that I really like, but they're all the same in a way: mushrooms, spinach, red peppers, garlic, onions. Rehash at will and put over pasta, next to meat, or in eggs. That's basically my who [...]


    2. This is one of two Mark Bittman cookbooks which fed our family from the late 1990's to present and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Any recent purchases of this book have been for my daughters, now grown or for our vacation home.What I love about this book is the reliability of good tasting, simple recipes each on a two-page layout stating the time it will take to make, recommendations for accompanying dishes (and the recipes are in the same book), recommendations for accompanying beverages, [...]


    3. This book presents simple recipes in a very innovative and interesting way. On the left page, a description of the ingredients and basic recipes. In the margin, a comment by Bittman explaining why he chose this recipe. On the right page, information on ways to "jazz up" the recipe with "minimal effort" + cooking tips ("keys to success") to increase chances of success. Rather than having tons of recipes with photographs, we have fewer (still at least 100) but these are presented very clearly. Eac [...]


    4. This cookbook is geared toward the more experience chef. Bittman takes an recipe and then shows you how to change it. My favorite recipe is Cookie Dough - it allows you to make five different types of cookies in one batch. The recipes are fairly healthy, simple and Bittman teaches you how to make them your own. Highly recommend.


    5. I prefer his other more comprehensive cookbooks which are my new go to cookbooks in my kitchen including How To Cook Everything, How To Cook Everything Vegetarian, and my favorite, How To Cook Everything Fast.


    6. Sorry, any book where the appetizers/soups alone require a trip to the Asian market and $10-15 dollars is not my definition of minimalist. Also, most of the entrees take 45-60 minutes which is not exactly more in less time either.


    7. We've enjoyed almost everything we've cooked from this book. A standout is the Chicken with Coconut and Lime. Directions are clear and direct with good photographs. I love the "with minimal effort" section at the end of each recipe--easy ways to tweak the recipes for different effects.


    8. There aren't nearly enough recipes to justify the price of the book, and the ones that are there are dull and boring. Maybe if you are used to frozen TV dinners, this book will seem exciting by comparison. But if you're used to home cooking, find a better cookbook.


    9. Some good ideas, but a little too fancy for my tastes. I don't want to have to search for ingredients and for minimalist recipes some of these still have a lot of steps or take a lot of time and planning.


    10. I "discovered" Mark Bittman's New York Times column several weeks ago; since then, I have been the ultimate Bittman fan. I have learned so much, and I recommend everything he has ever written!



    11. Love this cookbook-- simple flavorful recipes that are easy to prepare written in Mark Bittman's no-nonsense style.



    12. Simple, easy recipes that can be adapted to whatever ingredients are on hand. Not exhaustive by any means, but a decent introduction to some basic dishes that can inspire improvisational cooking.


    13. I watch on video through New York Times Mark Bittman's cooking daily and wasn't disappointed to read his book.If you like to cook or want to learn to cook his simple recipes are a must.




    14. I use these recipes as a starting point for meals. Followed to the tee, the dishes are a little too simple and fundamental.


    15. I checked this out of the library on a whim and now I have to go and purchase it. Excellent advice on simple everyday food.


    16. Highly disappointing Boring recipes with pasta, chicken, and fish The paella recipe sounds like the same kind of ladies' magazine tripe that American culture has been feeding us for years.
