Well, with the help of Hack Your Cupboard, you can grab whatever's handy (ramen in a pinch) head to your pantry, and get to work! After a discussion of what food storage areas typically have (and what they ought to have), each section of the book provides age-specific guidance for the kinds of environments you're likely to be working in. What results is a book that you can take with you as you move on to ever-larger spaces and ever more ambitious meals, from the family pantry to a dorm room fridge, a first apartment, and beyond. With dozens of photographs as well as dream dinners for every level of chef, this is the cookbook for anyone who wants to break out of a kitchen rut without breaking too much of a sweat."@en ;
