This guide to cooking from the popular VICE channel MUNCHIES teaches you both survival and show-off skills via more than 80 recipes.
Over the years, MUNCHIES has worked with all kinds of chefs, making food that ranges from lowbrow to highbrow and everywhere in between. Now they are here to help you cook dinner on busy weeknights and host friends with an impressive spread on the weekends. Tips and tricks include how to set up and shop for a pantry (with recipes for how to make your own mayo and quick pickle some jalapeños); how to take back your weeknights with easy, fast-to-table meals (like Spinach and Mushroom Ravioli and Charred Cabbage); and even how to wow friends on the weekends with more elaborate recipes such as a fully composed (and highly postable) cheese board or a to-die-for roast chicken. With more than 80 essential recipes from the editors and test kitchen at MUNCHIES, this cookbook has something for everyone at every skill level. With a minimal amount of work, you will have Instagram-worthy food on the table faster than it takes to get a GrubHub delivery from the Thai restaurant down the street.
