This is a clearly written lovely cook book. Plated comes with a colorful hard cover with great photography on it.  It is simple but elegant on the outside.  The cook book name doesn't throw me for a loop.  I do not think it would catch my eye at the store just looking at the binding.  Though the name was is a little different for me, the reason the cookbook was name Plated is from the company plated.  These recipes come from the company plated that want to make fresh food more accessible to people.  This cook book is divided into 10 sections for you to enjoy.  These sections include  Kitchen Basics,Flavoring, Weeknight Dinners, Great For Leftovers, Make Ahead, Weekend Feasts, For A Crowd, On the Side, and At the End.  I love to cook my meals from starch so we do not have all the extra additive and preservative.  I love all the background information what you should have in your kitchen to have it well stocked.   I really love a cookbook with loads of pictures and wonderful photography so if you are looking for that you will not be disappointed.  This cookbook has everythign from simple rubs to huge feasts. Plated is easy to follow, simple but elegant and looks beautiful on your shelf!
