Books Are Magic
225 Smith Street
In partnership with TASTE, we are hosting Anita Lo for her new book, Solo: A Modern Cookbook for a Party of One!
Anita Lo puts the “Lo” in alone. The life of a Michelin-starred New York City chef is a lonely one–there’s not much time for dating or dinners with friends–so she’s perfected the art of cooking for one. In this delightful cookbook, Lo presents 101 accessible, contemporary, and sophisticated recipes for home cooks, most of which take less than thirty minutes to make.
Drawn from her childhood, her years cooking around the world, and her extensive travels, these are globally inspired, restaurant-quality dishes from Lo’s own repertoire. Think Steamed Seabass with Shiitakes; Smoky Eggplant and Scallion Frittata; Chicken Pho; Slow Cooker Shortrib with Caramelized Endive; Broccoli Stem Slaw; Chicken Tagine with Couscous; and Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie–even a New England clambake for one. (And don’t worry, these recipes are easily multiplied by two if you have company.)
Anita Lo will be in conversation with Matt Rodbard, the Editor-in-chief of TASTE.
