Hack your cupboard : make great food with what you've got

Summary: It's not always easy to try out a new recipe, especially when the risk of failure brings with it the risk of a hungry night at home. But sticking to what you know and love can get pretty boring after a while. So what's a lazy, cash-strapped chef to do? Well, with the help of Hack Your Cupboard, you can grab whatever's handy (ramen in a pinch) head to your pantry, and get to work! After a discussion of what food storage areas typically have (and what they ought to have), each section of the book provides age-specific guidance for the kinds of environments you're likely to be working in. What results is a book that you can take with you as you move on to ever-larger spaces and ever more ambitious meals, from the family pantry to a dorm room fridge, a first apartment, and beyond. With dozens of photographs as well as dream dinners for every level of chef, this is the cookbook for anyone who wants to break out of a kitchen rut without breaking too much of a sweat.
