One Page Cookbooks
One page cookbooks offer a new, easy way to look at cooking.
For the reluctant cook
They are designed for the”don't-wanna-but-gotta-cook" people. No cooking terms are used and no knowledge is assumed on the part of the reader. The presentation is non -threatening. There are no complicated steps, no exact measurements and nothing to memorise.
Each recipe is broken into three easy parts- The base, the flavouring and the additives. These are prepared separately, then mixed and cooked together. This way, the chances of going wrong are minimised. Since all recipes follow this exact format, learning one recipe lets one cook thousands of other recipes.
A thousand recipes ?
The table lists recipes starting from 000 to 999 - a total of 1000 recipes. There is a recipe corresponding to each number, and many of them have never been cooked before - you have a chance to invent your own a unique recipe. In fact the table lists not just 1000 recipes, but 9!*9!*9! ( read Nine factorial cubed). You won't run out of recipes anytime soon !
Easy to refer
One page cookbooks are designed for easy reference. Hang it in the kitchen and thousands of recipes are right there, in front of you!
Focus on creativity, not manual skill
The core idea is to encourage creativity by not focusing too much on details or on manual skill. All recipes demanding a good deal of manual skill have been avoided. Only simple, easy to cook recipes are listed.
Cook on the first try
All recipes are designed to be cooked by a novice on the very first try. That said, this cookbook does not promise to create an overnight chef. The chief goal is to keep it simple, which occasionally leads to oversimplification. However I find it useful, when stuck with a cook's eternal question - What do I cook today ? I hope you do too.
