Instagram-worthy avocado toast, overpriced smoothies and Seamless may be what comes to mind whe you think of millennials' relationship to food. But in “Hot Mess Kitchen: Recipes For Your Delicious, Disastrous Life” (Grand Central Publishing) Gabi Moskowitz and Miranda Berman break that stereotype one heaped-tablespoon at a time.
The authors have a joint background in food and comedy—Berman is a writer on Hulu’s “The Mindy Project” and Moskowitz is the popular food blogger behind “Broke-Ass Gourmet,” and the cookbook is a perfect hybrid showing off their many talents with a combination of hilarious storytelling, creative recipes, entertaining guides as well as practical tips for new chefs. Read our Q&A with the author's where they tell us how they met, (spoiler: through an app) and why they’re nervous for their grandparents to read the book.
The orginal recipe for for this recipe from the cookbook used ham or tofu, but we've adapted it here for our kosher readers. Happy cooking!
