ABOUT THE SIDE DISH BIBLE
A roadmap to help home cooks round out and enhance any meal, for any occasion with 1001 recipes for every type of side dish imaginable.
Every cook struggles over making side dishes, from choosing what goes best with the main course to getting stuck in a rut making the same tired green beans and rice. But this compendium of side dishes changes all that; more thorough than any other cookbook, our first complete compilation of side dishes offers 1,001 perfect recipes for tonight and every night, whether you only have a few minutes or need your next dinner-party go to.
The structure of the book is to help you choose the perfect side based dish on the kind of meal you’re planning to make. Busy weeknight? Flip to Basics You Can Count On for quick, simple, satisfying sides. Want the perfect pairing for a wintery roast? Look to Roast Your Vegetables for foolproof roasting methods and flavorful preparations. For easy reference, icons mark which recipes are Fast (30 minutes or less), Make Ahead (can be made at least 4 hours in advance), and/or Vegan. We’ve also included dozens of recipes for spice blends and sauces that add texture and flavor such as Za’atar, Dukkah, Sriracha Mayo, and Parsley-Lemon Compound Butter.
