This book will not tell you how to make a meal out of canned whole chicken and pizza crusts. But what it does is taking the ideas behind the show chopped to make meals out of the types of things that most people have in their kitchen, which a few items that might be new to people. It includes short question and answers from the various chopped judges. It also includes charts for how to quickly and easily make many versions of basic things, i.e. what combination of acid, oil and flavors to use to make all sorts of vinaigrettes. There are also pages that take the same 3-5 items and make 3 or 4 different type of meals out of them. Sadly the dessert section includes no bread puddings.
