More is More, Molly Baz
Molly Baz's number one goal in life is to convince the world that cooking is fun and not that hard to do if you’re properly set up. When she’s not writing books, Molly hosts a subscription digital recipe club, The Club, where she drops weekly new recipes for her fans and produces her Youtube series “Hit The Kitch,” a casual, never-too-serious, but always educational cooking show. In More Is More she encourages more risk-taking, better intuition, fewer exact measurements, and a “don’t stop ‘til it tastes delicious” mentality. In an interview with Eater, Baz says, “It embodies a mentality of throwing yourself into something wholeheartedly and with confidence.” The recipes in this book will encourage you to break out of your comfort zone and learn how to cook passionately and fearlessly. Some ingredients are open-ended so that you can pick your favourite [insert herb] for a salad, and quantities like generous handfuls, glugs, and pinches will be encouraged so you reach less for the tangled-up set of measuring spoons and connect more with the ones you’ve got attached to your body. To cook with a “more is more” mentality is to identify what the right amount of any given ingredient means to you, and the only way to gain that self-assuredness is to cook more—and more—and then probably a little more.
