Milk Street: Tuesday Nights: More than 200 Simple Weeknight Suppers that Deliver Bold Flavor, Fast Reviews

  • Ron S

    Unlike a slew of cookbooks out there that are more than half filler trying to convince you they hold all the keys to perfect health and flavor, Milk Street Tuesday Nights gets to it quick after a one page intro. Organized by a combination of prep times (Fast, Faster, Fastest) and themes (Pizza Night), this is a practical cookbook with ingredients that you can find in most grocery stores that don't call for fancy gadgets, beyond a food processor. The tips are brief ("don't skip the lime wedges")

    Unlike a slew of cookbooks out there that are more than half filler trying to convince you they hold all the keys to perfect health and flavor, Milk Street Tuesday Nights gets to it quick after a one page intro. Organized by a combination of prep times (Fast, Faster, Fastest) and themes (Pizza Night), this is a practical cookbook with ingredients that you can find in most grocery stores that don't call for fancy gadgets, beyond a food processor. The tips are brief ("don't skip the lime wedges") with the logic outlined ("they provide a much needed hit of acidity and freshness.") Dishes come from a wide range of cuisines around the globe. This book totally restored my faith in cookbooks and is my new favorite by a wide margin. It might not have the cachet of a celebrity chef's art book masquerading as a cookbook but if you want something for the kitchen rather than the coffee table, look no further.

    Once again Chris Kimball and his cohort of recipe development chefs have put together a great cookbook. I've already cooked a few recipes from this book and they've been huge hits with the wife and our extended families. (Slightly less so with the kids, but the Milk Street philosophy is about bold flavors and the kids aren't quite ready for that yet in most foods)

    This book is similar in its raison d'etre as Dinner Illustrated (book insertion link not working for me as I write this) put out by hi

    Once again Chris Kimball and his cohort of recipe development chefs have put together a great cookbook. I've already cooked a few recipes from this book and they've been huge hits with the wife and our extended families. (Slightly less so with the kids, but the Milk Street philosophy is about bold flavors and the kids aren't quite ready for that yet in most foods)

    This book is similar in its raison d'etre as Dinner Illustrated (book insertion link not working for me as I write this) put out by his previous employer, America's Test Kitchen. This book has a lot more recipes that are faster - in fact Tuesday Night's chapters are Fast, Faster, and Fastest. Also, in keeping with the Milk Street ethos, the recipes are more from around the world and with boldly spiced flavors. Not necessarily spicy, just lots of spices - like Za'atar, sumac, or harissa.

    I can't help but compare the two as they both came out at the same time and Kimball used to work at ATK. I like the way Dinner Illustrated is organized better - by the protein in the dish. I also really like the style of their "Illustrated" line of cookbooks that takes a lot of guesswork out of how things are supposed to look as they're going along. I also think that there are a chunk of recipes in Tuesday Nights (not too many) that are "cheating" in that they are done in less than an hour, but they require something to go along with them to be a complete meal like rice or potatoes or bread. In the case of rice or bread it's not a big deal because bread you just buy and rice (at least the way I make it) is fire and forget in the rice cooker.

    That said, I have really enjoyed the recipes I've made from this book. And some of them have inspired my wife who is much more of the off the script type of chef to come up with some great ideas, too. If you want to explore some food from around the world that tastes great and doesn't take too long to cook, this is a great buy.

    I give this cookbook 4 stars for the interesting dishes and the fact that the recipes were accompanied by photographs which is a big plus for me. Most of these dishes are global recipes with an emphasis on Asian cuisine. I would have been disappointed if I were a mom looking to find quick meals for my kids on a busy weeknight. I’m guessing that many kids aren’t going to be adventurous enough to try a lot of the dishes offered. This is not a family friendly cookbook unless your children are open

I’m guessing that many kids aren’t going to be adventurous enough to try a lot of the dishes offered. This is not a family friendly cookbook unless your children are open to new food experiences. It’s a great cookbook if you love global recipes and want to break out of the rut of spaghetti, mac-n-cheese and chicken fingers.

    I wasn't familiar with Milk Street, but apparently it's a cooking school, TV show, radio show, and magazine! In this cookbook Kimball focuses on quick, weeknight meal ideas. I like that the cookbook is divided by how you cook, not by meal. So there are chapters on Fast, Faster, Fastest (how quickly the meal is ready), sides, salads, pizza night, etc. The recipes are globally inspired, so there is a lot of variety of dishes. I found a few things I'd like to try, but there were a lot of seafood di

So there are chapters on Fast, Faster, Fastest (how quickly the meal is ready), sides, salads, pizza night, etc. The recipes are globally inspired, so there is a lot of variety of dishes. I found a few things I'd like to try, but there were a lot of seafood dishes which I can't eat and I'm not a super adventurous/global eater, so this wasn't the best cookbook for me. But, if you are looking for more quick and easy meals there are a LOT of recipes in this book.
