Harvard Book Store welcomes renowned chef, editor, publisher, and television and radio host CHRISTOPHER KIMBALL for a presentation of his latest cookbook, Milk Street: Tuesday Nights: More than 200 Simple Weeknight Suppers that Deliver Bold Flavor, Fast.

About Milk Street: Tuesday Nights

It’s Tuesday night at Milk Street. And that means a fresh, flavorful meal that comes together in minutes, such as Ginger-Soy Steak, Salt-and-Pepper Shrimp, Hazelnut-Crusted Chicken Cutlets, Pasta with Seared Cauliflower, and Cuban-Spiced Burgers.

Christopher Kimball and his team of cooks and editors search the world for straightforward techniques that deliver big flavors in less time. Here they present more than 200 solutions for bold weeknight cooking, showing how to make simple, healthy, delicious meals using pantry staples and just a few other ingredients.

Tuesday Nights is organized by the way you cook. Some chapters focus on time—with recipes that are Fast (under an hour, start to finish), Faster (45 minutes or less), and Fastest (25 minutes or less)—while others highlight easy methods or themes, including Supper Salads, Roast and Simmer and Easy Additions. And there’s always time for pizza, tacos, “walk-away” recipes, one-pot wonders and ultrafast 20-minute miracles.

And for dessert? Sweets such as Brazilian Chocolate Fudge Candies and Raspberry-Pistachio Meringue.

Great food in quick time, every night of the week.

“The answer to quick midweek meals that never disappoint.” ―Entertainment Weekly

“The book is so beautiful . . . I can’t wait to try it.” ―Rachael Ray

“This approachable book compiles an array of global recipes that are bold in flavor, yet simple enough for the home cook. Try the mouth-watering soups, such as Spicy Red Lentil Stew and Spanish Garlic. And be sure to pay attention to the technical tips along the way.” ―RealSimple
