Weekend Cooking, by Tina Nordstöm
At the end of a long work week, we’d love to simply leave the grocery bags on the counter to unpack themselves, get comfortable, and call for takeout on Friday night, and maybe Saturday, and definitely Sunday. However, pints of fried rice and slices of pizza can add up; in no time at all, your pants will be tighter and your wallet will be lighter.
Swedish top chef Tina Nordström knows the last thing you want to do on the weekends is more work. But what if that work were rewarding? And delicious? And exactly what you need to forget that another Monday is just around the corner? Sitting down to dishes like baked potatoes with roast beef and bell peppers, deep-fried avocado with lemon dip and peanuts, crispy roast pork with red cabbage and spicy mustard, vanilla ice cream with caramel sauce and crumbles, and chocolate cake will indeed whisk you away from the weekday craziness and will help you relax and enjoy your weekend.
This book provides three sections of recipes: Friday’s recipes are fast and simple, so you can finally get off your feet and cuddle in front of the couch. Saturday’s are more challenging and plentiful, great for dinner for two (or ten, if you wish to entertain) with suggested appetizers, wine pairings, and decadent desserts. And finally, on Sunday, sleep in and prepare yourself for everyone’s favorite meal—brunch!
