With her first book in 2016, food writer Julia Turshen cheered us home cooks on in Small Victories, then she taught us how to Feed The Resistance (Amen, sister). With Now & Again, Julia inspires us to cook with an eye toward leftovers—seeing the potential in every meal. What might this dish become tomorrow or the next day? you’ll find yourself asking. If you’re a planner and a lover of menus, this is for you, too. Now & Again includes 125 approachable recipes to make now, and countless ways to turn them into completely different meals later (you’ll find those in the “It’s Me Again” sidebars). Imagine that. . .Julia Turshen is just like us. She loves cooking, but doesn’t necessarily want to start from scratch every night of the week. As Julia says, “Leftovers mean you’re already half way to the whole meal.” Half way there is a Godsend on a busy Wednesday night.
On special nights and holidays, you’ll want to pull from one of Julia’s many menus. We did, and will again. Guaranteed.
