Jennifer Segal, author of the blog and cookbook Once Upon a Chef, is known for her foolproof, updated spins on everyday classics. Meticulously tested and crafted with an eye toward both flavor and practicality, Jenn’s recipes hone in on exactly what you feel like making.
When Jennifer Segal first became a mother, years before she launched her well-known blog, she kept a recipe binder with two sections: Weeknight and Weekend. This was how she planned her meal, and that is still how she plans her dinner fifteen years later.
In this versatile collection, you’ll find seventy recipes for fast and easy weeknight meals, like Sesame-Ginger Meatballs and Pecorino-Crusted Chicken with Rosemary, and thirty recipes for slow, soothing weekend cooking, whether that’s company-friendly Sear-Roasted Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish Cream Sauce or lazy Sunday morning Popovers with Salted Maple Butter. You’ll also find Jenn’s favorite desserts, like Cherry Ricotta Cake and Triple Chocolate Cheesecake, that are easy enough for the weeknight rush and luscious enough for weekend rest and celebration.
Featuring seventy all-new dishes plus thirty fan favorites from her popular blog, each recipe is tested and retested multiple times in Jenn’s home kitchen to ensure they are reliable, delicious, and sure to please every night of the week.
