About the Book

Counter Cuisine
the way to cook great food

With over 150 unique recipes, Counter Cuisine is an innovative resource for the minimalist cook. Whether cooking with or without a kitchen, simplified solutions are provided for every need—from practical no-cook and one-pot meals to appealing comfort foods, baked goods, unique desserts, pantry items, and impressive dishes for entertaining. The cookbook offers alternative cooking methods that work in tandem with the new generation of compact appliances.


“I affectionately refer to Counter Cuisine as an ‘alternative lifestyle’ cookbook because it is an integrated collection of master recipes that support a less complicated way of living. Nothing is sacrificed, it is simplified. It honors the environment, reduces energy—and still, is richly abundant.”
