NEW DATE: Cookbook Club: Hero Dinners: Complete One-Pan Meals
Tue, July 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Westporters Marge Perry and David Bonom as they discuss and give demos from their new book, Hero Dinners: Complete One-Pan Meals That Save the Day. Even if you love to cook, the last thing you want to do at the end of a long day is wash a sink full of pots and pans. Hero Dinners gives you the superpower to make delicious, well-balanced meals using fresh, wholesome ingredients—all in just one sheet pan or skillet. The wizardry behind these complete meals is in super smart, innovative— and simple!—techniques that ensure you won’t end up with muddled flavors and textures. With these inventive recipes, you’ll maximize the impact of each and every ingredient and flavor. And every recipe truly makes a complete meal, including protein and a vegetable or grain—and usually both.
