Product Details


“If you never learned how to crack an egg or boil noodles, prepare to get schooled by food writer and mom of three, Katie Sullivan Morford. In her latest book, Prep: The Essential College Cookbook, Morford shares all the wisdom she’d impart unto her own college-bound kids, like the meanings of basic cooking terms, the proper way to hold a knife, ingredients you should always keep stocked in the fridge, etc. And, of course, she offers easy-to-follow recipes for everything from omelets to loaded nachos.”—HGTV, “10 Essential Cookbooks for College Students”
“This go-to guide for cooking basics is written for people who are new to the kitchen and living on their own for the first time. Each of the book’s ten chapters covers basic cooking lessons to get novices comfortable in the kitchen, including prepping eggs like a pro, fixing a killer plate of pasta, cooking vegetables you want to eat and feeding your friends.”Forbes, “The Best Cookbooks for College Students”
“This book is not only good for college students—it’s a great primer for any beginner. It covers the basics like pantry essentials and instructions on how to safely cut an avocado, as well as easy but elevated recipes like Pesto Quinoa and Thai-Style Coconut Curry Noodle Soup. While the book’s focus is on healthy foods, Morford also works in some comfort classics like Chocolate Chip Cookies and Pasta with Butter, Egg, and Cheese—the idea being that making these foods at home is still better for you than going out for them.”—Men’s Health
“For home chefs looking to get into the basics—or, students on their way to college—Prep focuses on 10 elementary lessons to get readers comfortable in the kitchen. . . . (And yes, that includes knife skills.)”—Food and Wine
