Dawn Perry used to wake up at the crack of dawn to hit the farmers market and scour specialty food stores for peak-season vegetables and lesser-known spices. But as her life changed with her growing family and career, so did her priorities in the kitchen. She found herself with less time for meal prepping or excursions in search of specific ingredients. And when it came to mealtime, she wanted to make good food that was beautiful to look at and delicious to eat, but didn’t take more than a half hour of hands-on time and didn’t require ingredients beyond what she had in her pantry.
With Ready, Set, Cook, Perry offers her very own playbook for getting good food on the table fast so you can spend your free time doing more of what you love, without having to worry about preparing your next meal.
Whether you’re just getting comfortable in the kitchen, or are a seasoned cook looking for new tips and tricks, Ready, Set, Cook is an accessible toolbox that takes the stress out of cooking for everyone -- and teaches you how to make meals taste like you worked much harder and much longer on them than you actually did.
Are you ready? Get set. Let’s cook!
