Mad Genius Tips by Justin Chapple

Another new cookbook to check out is Mad Genius Tips by the editors of Food & Wine.  This past summer my son found several recipes by Food & Wine that he tried and enjoyed.  So it was an obvious choice to purchase the Mad Genius Tips cookbook for a Christmas gift for him. For the most part a two page spread includes a recipe and step by step instructions  to make it, with photos.  The DIY Noodle cup includes ramen noodles, shredded cooked chicken, mushrooms, spinach and a 1 – pint mason jar. A quick and easy lunch meal.  The best part is that it can be made the night before for lunch the next day.

The Table of Contents is arranged by the tool that is used:  aluminum foil, box grater, bundt pan, microwave, mason jar,fork+spoon, plastic baggie and sticks and skewers.  The index is arrange by food type.

Loved the pictures and simple recipes.  Making crispy tortilla bowls and poached are techniques I am going to try.  The only con of this cookbook is that there is no nutritional information.
