More Is More: Get Loose in the Kitchen: A Cookbook

It's time to crank up the heat and lose the measuring spoons with our latest review of the More is More cookbook.

In her hit first cookbook, Cook This BookMolly Baz introduced the basics of cooking while showcasing her passion for mortadella and dill. With More Is More, she guides cooks to enhance their culinary skills, relax before a sizzling pan, and relentlessly pursue delectable flavors.

Renowned for her unique spins on traditional dishes and innovative kitchen creativity, this new cookbook promises an immersive experience, emphasizing depth in flavor and ingredients.

More Is More is not just a cookbook but a philosophy that encourages bolder culinary risks, honed intuition, lesser emphasis on precise measurements, and a relentless drive towards achieving delightful flavors.

Molly's DNA

Staying true to Molly's distinct style, the More is More cookbook presents a blend of contemporary design punctuated by retro flair. The pages are adorned with top-notch photographs, each echoing the vibrant spirit of the recipes they depict. The intuitive layout of the cookbook ensures a seamless transition from appetizers to delectable desserts.

The recipes in More Is More are fit for any day of the week and for cooks of all skill levels. Each recipe will teach a technique or flavor combination that takes Molly's maximalist "leave no flavor on the cutting board" approach. So crank your ovens! Grab a fat pinch of salt! And if you're going to use an ingredient, truly use it. Just one lonely clove of garlic? Not in this cookbook!

It's evident that for Molly, "more" isn't just about quantity but quality and layers of taste. Even with a title suggesting lavishness, Molly ensures each dish in the cookbook is elaborate yet accessible to all.

Start your morning with a Crispy Rice Egg-in-a-Hole, throw together a Chicken Salad with Coconut Crunch for lunch, look forward to Drunken Cacio e Pepe for dinner, and save room for a fat slice of Ooey Gooey Carrot Cake for dessert. The Only Meatloaf that Matters will teach you the power of re-frying, while Miso-Braised Chicken and Leeks will ensure you never throw away the green tops of the leeks again.

A Cookbook for Everyone

The instructional backbone of More is More Cookbook reflects Molly's teaching roots. Every recipe in the cookbook is clarified, ensuring even those new to the kitchen can mirror her creations. The entire cookbook feels like a guided culinary workshop, with Molly's supportive voice resonating throughout.

Throughout, you'll encounter dozens of QR codes to step-by-step audio tutorials for a hands-free cook-along experience guided by Molly, plus recipe videos to help illuminate some of the trickier skills and recipes. With intoxicatingly delicious recipes, vivid photographs, and Molly's one-of-a-kind playful guidance and whimsy, More Is More will inspire cooks to embrace a fearless mindset to level up their cooking—for life.

Both More Is More and Cook This Book exude a strikingly similar vibe, making them feel like two parts of a cohesive culinary narrative. While Cook This Book laid down the foundation, introducing readers to the joyous world of Molly's cooking, More Is More feels like a natural continuation, delving deeper into the art of home cooking.

The seamless transition between the two captures Molly's essence beautifully. Fans who cherished the inaugural cookbook and those who adore Molly Baz's culinary approach will undoubtedly find More Is More an enthralling encore.
