01/01/2016Le Cordon Bleu Paris-trained chef Miller's debut is a single person's guide to cooking without compromise. Noting that more people live alone now than ever, the author presents single-serving recipes for breakfasts (sunny-side-up taco), lunches (smoked duck breast salad), mains (spicy pork burger with coconut), and desserts (ginger-peach crisp). She also includes more generous recipes for making ahead and freezing or entertaining friends. Miller favors indulgent foods and urges readers to stock ingredients such as grapeseed oil, pink Himalayan salt, quinoa flour, white truffle oil, and sushi-grade tuna. She offers some budget-friendly dishes, though, including cozy lentil stew with six vegetables, panzanella, and pasta with tuna. VERDICT This cookbook reframes cooking, which can seem like a chore, as a form of self-care. Solo diners looking to revive the pleasure of cooking for one will enjoy this, as well as Deborah Madison and Patrick McFarlin's What We Eat When We Eat Alone.

At a time when 31 million American adults live alone, Klancy Miller is here to show that cooking for one is something to embrace.

Miller stayed in Paris for four years, learning about pastry, apprenticing in a bakery, working in a three-star Michelin restaurant and cooking for herself regularly. Kitchen work proved exhausting, so she got a job doing recipe development at Le Cordon Bleu and started writing about food on a freelance basis. She interviewed chef and restaurateur Marcus Samuelsson for a profile and he became a great mentor. They worked together on several projects, and he introduced her to a number of valuable writing contacts and helped her get an agent.
When I was 21 and graduating from college, I assigned myself a mission: turn the conundrum of what to do professionally into an enjoyable adventure, an exciting puzzle. I worked as a researcher at a non-governmental organization during the week, and after work and on weekends I explored other potential career interests. I danced, took film-editing and documentary-making classes, acting workshops, and cooking classes. The cooking stuck.
Outside of school, Paris was an invaluable classroom. I explored food markets in every corner of the city, from rue Mouffetard to the marché bio (organic market) and from Château Rouge to Belleville to La Grande Epicerie. I began cooking for myself everyday. Little did I know that that practice would lead to me writing a book called Cooking Solo: The Fun of Cooking for Yourself.
For New York-based pastry chef Klancy Miller, cooking for one is something to be celebrated. While for most of us, the thought of preparing a home-cooked meal to be devoured solo is often met with eye-rolling or a disconcerting sigh, Klancy's authentic love for good food and appreciation for wellbeing, spawned a cookbook that celebrates the art of Cooking Solo.Here, Klancy dishes on her big break, what inspired her cookbook, her admiration for Kiwi produce and what makes her so good at throwing waffle parties.

As a single woman, home cooking for me looks like this: shoving lettuce in my mouth straight from the bag, while I wait for the water to boil to make pasta, which I will eat out of the pot, standing up. When I read about a new cookbook for singles, I was all: That's pathetic. I don't mind eating out of a pot, I don't need someone to make an industry out of my position. I don't feel bad for myself, so I don't need anyone else to. I bet all the meals revolve around cheese and chocolate. I bet it's all comfort food because they assume single women need it. But when I stopped waving my finger around in the air to emphasize my point to no one, I had a change of heart. Just because I have no one to cook for doesn't mean I should throw away the practice of preparing a thoughtful meal. Going a week without using a plate is nothing to be proud of.
Many of us have been spending more time at home over the past 10 months, and a lot more of that time has been spent alone. With the coronavirus pandemic cutting off access to friends and social circles, and all the places we used to gather, that's no surprise. And if you're by yourself, you've most likely been cooking for one.
\"You might have roommates, you might be partnered, but we're all spending way more time at home, and we're all having to kind of do everything, and that includes cooking,\" says cookbook author Klancy Miller, who has seen a resurgence of interest in her 2016 book, \"Cooking Solo: The Fun of Cooking for Yourself.\"
In addition to stay-at-home efforts intended to limit contact with other people, Miller sees the solo-cooking boom prompted by the closure of restaurants and the financial pinch experienced by people who may be less able to afford eating out (or, more likely, in via takeout). 1e1e36bf2d
