Who knew this simple and easy-to-use kitchen appliance could do so much?
Kathy Strahs, for one, did. Creator of the multiple-award-winning food blog Panini Happy, the web's go-to destination for panini-press wisdom, Strahs does wonderful things with a panini press, from crafting perfect Italian-style panini to building scrumptious and creative grilled cheese sandwiches to making things you never thought you could make on a countertop grill or griddle.
Dig into these recipes to discover your panini press's impressive range—including breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners, for the weekday whirl and for relaxing times on weekends. About half the recipes in this book—a collection of the 100 best recipes from Strahs's earlier book, The Ultimate Panini Press Cookbook—are for panini, such as a robust Cheddar, Apple, and Whole-Grain Mustard Panini or a zesty Chimichurri Steak Panini. The remaining recipes are for dishes you will be amazed to learn you can make on a countertop grill, including quesadillas, croques monsieurs, brats, burgers, salads topped with crisply grilled meats, and even grilled desserts.
This beautiful volume will inspire great cooking and fun meals, without the fuss or effort.
|For those you already have a Panini maker this book is excellent for it gives you other ideas and recipes for you to use it. That for me is what I found so unique about this book. Some of the recipes especially about breakfast were why didn’t I think about that. I had just used mine for mainly sandwiches and for lunch, the author gives you so many options that this makes this a very handy kitchen tool. When she added desserts to the already many different ideas I knew she really had a very good cookbook and she herself had gone through her own testing of these recipes. I found this to be a wonderful book and would be very useful for anyone’s kitchen, I know it is for mine. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars.
