Nancy Silverton's New Book: Canned Heat

book_a-twist-of-the-wrist.jpgChristine Muhlke writes about Nancy Silverton's new book, A Twist of the Wrist: Quick Flavorful Meals With Ingredients from Jars, Cans, Bags, and Boxes. According to Muhlke, the book "green-lights prewashed salad, canned peas, jarred mayonnaise, boneless chicken breasts, and more—a gigantic leap for someone for whom a chicken sandwich always involved roasting a chicken and making a batch of mayonnaise."

The strange thing is that the two recipes in the story don't have much in the way of jarred, canned, bagged, and boxed ingredients. Serious Eats will investigate in future posts.
