"This is the book I've been waiting for all my life... a rejuvenating approach to using up odd ends and making the most of your ingredients, even ones you normally wouldn't think twice about tossing.... Adler's conversational tone feels like a friend cheering you on as you rummage through your fridge for dinner." --Bon Appetit

"Where the average home cook might see stray puzzle pieces that don't fit together, Adler sees delicious possibilities... Drawn from her restaurant experience, kitchen experimentation, and global cookbook collection, Adler's diverse recommendations range from practical to reassuring to unexpected." --Saveur

"Steeped in culinary practicality, mixing vibrant ideas with sharp real-world strategies... her tone is generous." --The Wall Street Journal

"I love the elegant honesty of Tamar's writing, the sureness of her direction and the range of her ideas. It's the kind of book that makes you feel more capable just by opening it." --Emily Weinstein, NYT Cooking

"Adler helps jump-start your creative process with easy ideas for even the most specific bits and bobs." --Real Simple

"A seemingly endless encyclopedia of recipes that rely on what's left after we finish the initial meal. Adler gives new life to the foods that many of us leave in the fridge to waste away... . The way she sees it, by making something new, you're honoring and extending the labor you put in the first time around."

"Breathes new life into every last leftover and scrap... very persuasive... there's something about Adler's confidence as both cook and writer that is reminiscent of M.F.K. Fisher." --Tejal Rao, The New York Times

"A comprehensive, beautifully illustrated and gracefully written resource... a no-waste ethos permeates these many pages with goodwill, humor, and hope. As with all things Adler, the writing is fantastic: expert and unfailingly elegant." --Vogue

"Tamar Adler's guide to redeeming leftovers is endlessly useful and great fun to browse: it deserves an everlasting place in any kitchen." --Harold McGee, author of On Food and Cooking

"The Everlasting Meal Cookbook is as inspiring as it is essential. Before you even finish reading the introduction, you know you are in good hands. Tamar Adler can teach the most trepidatious person to become a more intuitive and spontaneous cook." --Andy Baraghani, author of The Cook You Want to Be
