Cooking through the crisis with Jose Andres’ new cookbook

Uwhen the news feels overwhelming, I often turn to cooking. It was especially fitting this week that at the top of my pile of newly released cookbooks was that of Chef José Andrés The World Central Kitchen Cookbook. Its pages brought me moments of joy and inspiration. The recipes—including Haitian griot, Ukrainian borscht, and Afghan chickpea stew with spinach—are all about crunch time sustenance. Simple meals can provide hope to survivors and sustenance to first responders.

The books the basic philosophy is use what you have, which I can get behind. This led me to try the chicken chile verde recipe (pictured below) that World Central Kitchen volunteers served to migrant refugees in East Texas, flood survivors in Nebraska, and firefighters in Redding, California.

Bright and spicy, I will eat this again and again. I highly recommend a comforting soup or stew this weekend.
