Transform the way you use your freezer with 100 flavorful meal prep recipes that can be brought to the table in fewer than 30 minutes, from a two-time James Beard Award-winning chef and restaurateur.

The freezer is the secret weapon in the home kitchen of renowned Raleigh chef Ashley Christensen and her wife, cookbook author Kaitlyn Goalen. It makes a convenient fifteen-minute meal more delicious; it makes project cooking worth the effort; it makes grocery shopping less wasteful and more economical; and it enables them to use food to support their friends and community. In It’s Always Freezer Season, Christensen and Goalen reveal how the freezer can easily become the single most important kitchen tool for a home cook.

Discover make-ahead meal prep solutions to help you transform your kitchen workhorse into a fully provisioned pantry. Stock it with freezer pantry staples—items that you make and then use later as elements of more complicated recipes—and use those staples to make Cornbread Panzanella with Watermelon, Cucumber, and Za’atar Vinaigrette; Pan Roasted Chicken Breast with Preserved Lemon-Garlic Butter; and Braised Short Ribs with Cauliflower Fonduta.

Create fully prepared make-ahead dishes for every meal of the day to keep in your freezer, like Pistachio Croissant French Toast with Orange Blossom Soft Cream, Chicken and Kale Tortilla Soup, and Pimento Mac and Cheese Custard, plus snacks, sweets, and drinks ready to be enjoyed at a moment’s notice.

With delicious recipes, bright photography, helpful technical information, and tips on stocking a freezer pantry, this book will change the way you think about your freezer.
