Twenty-Dollar, Twenty-Minute Meals*

*For Four People

By Caroline Wright

Published by Workman Publishing Company

It’s a breakout book from a budding star. “Curbs the expense and time of cooking, and helps you put dinners on the table that feel like important triumphs.”—Amanda Hesser. “Caroline Wright has a great feel for the way we want to cook and eat these days. [The] recipes are bright, fresh, and appealing.”—Dorie Greenspan.

Twenty-Dollar, Twenty-Minute Meals has it all: A bold and irresistible promise—make fresh, delicious meals for four for $20 or less, and that take twenty minutes or less to prepare. A dynamic young author with serious fans. And the singular point of view that pulls it all together, from the narrative recipe style to the author’s unerring sense of the ingredient-forward way people want to cook and eat today.

Twenty-Dollar, Twenty- Minute Meals is for millennials on a budget and young moms and dads who want to make the kind of food they eat in restaurants or read about on blogs—for anyone who likes to cook and entertain but doesn’t always have a lot of time (or money). It’s quick and easy with a modern twist: Steak with Herb Sauce and Buttered Radishes. Seared Salmon with Orange Rosemary Lentils. Merguez Burger with Cucumber Dressing. Sage Pork Chops with Grilled Peaches and Onion. Orzo Risotto with Pancetta and Radicchio. And, of course, there’s dessert.

It’s the Wright way to cook: 20 minutes + $20 = a fabulous meal for 4.
