Helpful tools and features added

Step by step photos, recipe tags for fast (ready in 30 minutes or less) and vegetarian options, and Why This Recipe Works remain key features in this edition. Among the new features we've added: Total cooking times for each recipe to help you with planning, nutrition information for every recipe, and beautiful new finished recipe photography to inspire you to cook more often.

Avoid food waste the ATK way

We've all grown more conscious of food waste, a particular challenge for smaller households. In addition to shopping and storage advice, you'll find recipes for pickling vegetables, a delicious broth from vegetable scraps, and you'll learn how to use root vegetable greens and fronds. Strategies for using up bread (that go way beyond croutons and bread crumbs) and bottom-of-the-jar sauces and condiments, plus composting tips, and much more pack the new edition of The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook.

Variety and reliability remain goal #1

Your for-two repertoire will grow exponentially to include perfectly proportioned favorites such as Classic Pork Ragu (the right cut of pork is key), Modern Beef Pot Pie with Mushrooms and Sherry, and Key Lime Pie, as well as Dan Dan Mian, Oven-Steamed Fish with Scallions and Ginger, and Garam Masala-Spiced Mango Crisp. Look to The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook whenever you crave something, to plan weeknight meals, find a baking project, or are just looking to freshen up your routine.
