“The Millennial Ina Garten” -Variety

Everyone loves Mary Berg! And she’s back with a cookbook of 100 all-new recipes guaranteed to become your stress-free sidekick in the kitchen.

The kitchen is Mary Berg’s happy place, where worries melt away, a busy mind calms, and time seems to slow down. But she knows that for many people, the exact opposite is true! However you feel about mealtimes, Berg is here to help, with uncomplicated but delicious recipes, packed with tips and tricks, to produce flavorful results – every time.

  • It's What You Need: With chapters broken down into their main ingredient to facilitate easy searching, you'll love Berg's ideas for breakfast, veg & starch, pasta, fish, chicken, beef, pork & lamb, and, of course, sweets. 
  • Make It Easy! It's not just the name of her award-winning TV program, it's her culinary ethos. Berg's recipes look easy because they are easy, and the ones in this book are her most straightforward yet! 
  • Find the "Why": With notes in the margin of each recipe giving you the reason behind a certain ingredient or technique, you'll learn tips that act as building blocks for all your culinary endeavors. And with call-outs that point to recipes where you can get ahead, build fast flavor, or get more bang for your buck, home cooks of all skill levels will find something to entice. 

With every recipe Berg writes, her goal is to show you that cooking for yourself, your friends, and your family doesn't have to be boring, difficult, or stressful. No matter the time of day, or day of the week, with In Mary's Kitchen, you'll find everything you need to make the kitchen your happy place too.
