Book Review: The Tiny Kitchen Cookbook

The Tiny Kitchen Cookbook: Strategies and Recipes for Creating Amazing Meals in Small SpacesThe Tiny Kitchen Cookbook: Strategies and Recipes for Creating Amazing Meals in Small Spaces by Annie Mahle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

One of my first apartments—in a converted 1920s era hotel—had a tiny kitchen. I barely knew how to cook, and the smallness of the kitchen gave me an excuse not to learn. It would be years before I discovered how satisfying cooking could be. I thought a lot about that kitchen as I read The Tiny Kitchen Cookbook, and in my imagination I filled those skinny cupboards, stocked the 1950s era refrigerator, and made good use of that crazy eight-inch deep countertop. I wish I’d had this book then, but I’m delighted to discover it now.

As tiny homes become a lifestyle choice for many, the need grows for cookbooks like this one. I found the advice on stocking, arranging, and finding bonus space very well thought out. It’s clear that this author isn’t just talking the talk, she’s walking the walk… taking very tiny steps!

I have a big country kitchen these days, but that’s not going to stop me from trying many of these tempting recipes. Oh, and I’m feeling pretty darn smug about my habit of putting the cutting board over the sink – I’ve done that for years to free up counter space! Readers will learn about that, and much, much more. I’ll be recommending this book to anyone I know who’s struggling with a tiny kitchen.

My thanks to author Annie Mahle, NetGalley, and Storey Publishing for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
