meet the author: joe yonan

>> Thursday, April 7, 2011

last night my dad took me to a private cooking demonstration and tasting with joe yonan. who is joe? joe is a food editor for the washington post, a two-time james beard winner and author of a new cookbook called serve yourself: nightly adventures in cooking for one.

joe's cookbook is really a reflection of his life and how he chooses to live it. joe is single and cooks for himself every night instead of ordering out or eating cereal over the kitchen sink. he also cooks interesting, good food for himself and hates leftovers (i think i have a culinary crush).

we had a great time at the event. joe is very funny, laid-back and just seems like a fun guy to hang out with. he gave some great tips, including what to do with leftover ingredients and how to use less dishes when cooking. he also gave a cooking demonstration for one of his recipes in the book: mahi mahi with kiwi-avocado salsa and coconut rice. the fish and rice cook in the same pot so you have less clean up! we got to try a little sample of this and man, was it good. i will definitely be making it sometime soon.

if you get a chance, i would take a look at the book on amazon. this is really a great find for all the singles out there - or even couples!
