The meal kit trend just took an unexpected twist: cookbooks. One of the first startups in the biz, Plated, just published a collection of customizable, "choose your own adventure" recipes. What that means is that the book is organized by scenario, from weeknight dinners to make-ahead meals. Both practical and beautiful, Plated would make a great graduation or wedding gift.
My favorite chapter is Great for Leftovers, or as I like to call them, two-for-one meals. That's when you cook one large dinner and use the leftovers for the next meal. So smart. And isn't that the way a lot of us cook already? Check out these two recipes from the chapter: pesto-grilled chicken kebabs with ricotta pea salad, which turns into pesto chicken pizza almost as if by magic. Almost.
