Schneider gives you the know-how to embellish, adapt, change, alter, modify, and experiment in your cooking with plenty of encouragement and helpful information — the tools and insights you need to find your own voice and cook improvisationally. This includes an exploration of the creative mindset of improvisation: where to find inspiration, how to deal with the unexpected, practical approaches to learning what goes with what (including a chart of classic flavor affinities), and tips on organizing your kitchen to make improvising easier, from long–keeping pantry staples to makeshift tools. With The Improvisational Cook, you’ll discover a way of cooking that’s fun, unfussy, and truly pleasurable.
