The No Recipe Cookbook: A Beginner’s Guide to the Art of Cooking
The No Recipe Cookbook: A Beginner’s Guide to the Art of Cooking
WILMINGTON- Bartleby’s Books will host a book discussion with Susan Crowther, author of “The No Recipe Cookbook: A Beginner’s Guide to the Art of Cooking,” on Saturday, August 3, at 4:30 pm. The event will be good for everyone interested in cooking, from beginner to experienced cook.

“The No Recipe Cookbook” is a warm and funny instructional guide. Rather than simply collecting recipes, author, chef, caterer, and nutritionist Crowther offers people something even more useful, an understanding of how to cook. “The No Recipe Cookbook” is a commonsensical and creative approach to preparing delicious meals, focusing on principles, intuition, and integrity. Cooking is also explored holistically, incorporating aspects such as local ingredients and “green cooking.” Each page explores culinary virtues of patience, adaptability, and love next to principles, utensils, and procedures. From preparing simple salad dressings to simmering soup stocks to kneading dough for bread, Crowther takes the intimidation factor out of cooking by giving readers the basic information and tools they need for culinary success.

Crowther is a Vermont transplant, from Chicago. Her interest in culinary art began at the age of 3, when she began playing Mish Mash, an improvisational game of mixing food ingredients together and hoping for something edible. This interest grew into a career, including graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, working in the industry, and eventually running her own catering business.
