Inspired by his traditional Italian upbringing, travels to over 50 countries and living in New York City, Anthony Michael Vitalone created The Big City Small Kitchen Cookbook to offer a healthy alternative to some popular ethnic dishes. However, the main purpose was to provide recipes for everyday foods that do not require specialized ingredients, much time or a large kitchen. Meant to inspire the home chef, The Big City Small Kitchen Cookbook illustrates that, despite time and space constraints, anyone can cook. Each recipe contains a base recipe, typically with a focus on reduced fat, sugar and calories. Each one-page recipe also provides a Note and Variation section. The Note provides cooking tips, additional information or safety guidelines. The Variation section of each recipe lists additional ingredients that can be used or food substitutions. Both sections are meant to inspire the reader to experiment and alter a recipe to suit their own taste or dietary needs. The recipes in this book are written specifically to serve two to four people. These scaled-down recipes are an ideal way to reduce preparation and cooking times. "A perfect companion for any Big City, Small Kitchen Chef."

VB6 does away with the hard and fast rules, the calorie-counting, and the portion control of conventional diets; it's a regimen that is designed to be easy toa dopt and stick to for a lifetime. When Bittman committed to a vegan before 6:00 pm diet, he quickly realized that everything about it became easier if he cooked his own meals at home. In The VB6 Cookbook he makes this proposition more convenient than you could imagine. Drawing on a varied and enticing pantry of vegan staples strategically punctuated with "treat" foods (including meat and other animal products), he has created a versatile repertoire of recipes that makes following his plan simple, satisfying, and sustainable. Breakfasts, the most challenging meal of the day for some vegans, are well represented here, with a full range of hot cereals, whirl-and-go-dairy free smoothies, toast toppers, and brunch-worthy entrees. Lunches include hearty soupls, sandwiches, beans, grains, and pastas to pack along wherever the day takes you, and more than a dozen snack recipes provide the perfect afternoon pick-me-up to banish the vending-machine cravings that can undo a day of eating well. Dinners are flexitarian, focusing on vegetable-forward meals that are augmented by a range of animal products for fullest flavor, satisfaction, and nutrient density. A chapter devoted entirely to "building blocks"--make-ahead components you mix and match--ensures that a flavorful and healthy meal is never more than a few minutes away. If you've thought of trying a vegan diet but worry it's too monotonous or unfamiliar, or simply don't want to give up foods you love to eat, Bittman's vegan and flexitarian recipes will help you cook your way to a new, varied and quite simply better way of eating you can really commit to...for life.
