200+ inventive yet straightforward recipes that will make anyone a better and more confident cook, from a James Beard Award&;winning chef
&;Everything I want for my dinner&;dishes which are familiar but fresh, approachable but exciting.&;&;Yotam Ottolenghi
Dinner has the range and authority&;and Melissa Clark&;s trademark warmth&;of an instant classic. With more than 200 all-new recipes, Dinner is about options: inherently simple recipes that you can make any night of the week. 
Each recipe in this book is meant to be dinner&;one fantastic dish that is so satisfying and flavor-forward it can stand alone&;maybe with a little salad or some bread on the side. This is what Melissa Clark means by changing the game. Organized by main ingredient&;chicken, meat, fish and seafood, eggs, pasta and noodles, tofu, vegetable dinners, grains, pizza, soups, and salads that mean it&;Dinner covers an astonishing breadth of ideas about just what dinner can be. There is something for every mood, season, and the amount of time you have: sheet pan chicken laced with spicy harissa, burgers amped with chorizo, curried lentils with poached eggs, to name just a few dishes in this indispensable collection. Here, too, are easy flourishes that make dinner exceptional: stir charred lemon into pasta, toss creamy Caesar-like dressing on a grain bowl. 
Melissa Clark&;s mission is to help anyone, whether a novice or an experienced home cook, figure out what to have for dinner without ever settling on fallbacks.

After a couple hundred purchased cookbooks, I decided that new books were coming from the library. This is the one of the very few that I borrowed and then bought a copy of. I still keep cooking from the book and it's a staple when it's time to menu plan. There's nothing super innovative about the recipes, but that's why it's so brilliant - good food, from ingredients you can find, and with cooking techniques that have you eating before midnight.

Recipes looked great and some innovation. Nothing really compelled me to buy the book but I did pick up some great ideas.

Taking the dread out of dinner. One tray, one pot, one complete dinner.

This cookbook is just about perfect. The recipes are often variations on a theme. Familiar enough in cooking method so that they can easily fit into your dinner rotation schedule but also throwing in enough inventive ingredient pairings to liven up your weeknights. Ingredients are varied an appealing but nothing so exotic that you will be staring at the book thinking "Where does a person even buy that?" I haven't purchased a cookbook in years but I think I'll have to buy this one as I imagine the library's copy will be always checked out!
