Sam Zien, aka Sam the Cooking Guy, is a testament to what happens when geeks follow their dreams. He ditched his biotech career to host his humble cooking show from his own kitchen on local San Diego TV and teach cooking classes around the city. The best part of his shows or videos has to be watching the unedited bloopers. He cuts himself, drops things, his dog makes surprise appearances, he spills stuff…he’s hilarious! Zien is now a 12-time Emmy-winning celebrity figure on Discovery Health Channel, just being himself and doing what he loves; showing people how to cook good but not overly complicated food. He has also penned three cookbooks, but the first one to make it big was “Just a Bunch of Recipes.”
So this book is about food that’s big in taste and small in effort. Just great-tasting stuff with no fancy techniques and definitely no over-the-top ingredients, as in everything-comes-from-a-regular-supermarket–cool concept, huh? It’s just a bunch of recipes you’ll easily be able to make and enjoy.
