Now that you’ve learned how to cook healthy, tasty meals, let’s spend some time talking about how to do so quickly. This, to me, is the most difficult part of cooking. I typically don’t have time to food prep for an entire week in advance. I come home, often late, after a long day, and really don’t have much energy left to cook.

But with a little bit of knowledge and planning, I can have a much better meal at home than I can if I use the other options available to me. The Culinary Institute of America also offers a video lecture series called The Everyday Gourmet: Great Meals in Less Time.

Evolution of a quick dish

A chef entertains
Again, this series can be purchased through Amazon or The Great Courses or rented from various libraries.
