Chef Witherspoon, director and executive chef of Denver-based The Seasoned Chef Cooking School , features nearly 40 easy-to-master core recipes, more than 100 diverse menu components and close to 45 time-saving next-day recipes that transform tonight's dinner into tomorrow's fresh take. His new cookbook, vivid with beautifully photographed images from Denver-based food photographer Jennifer Olson, walks you through step-by-step instructions that show recreational cooks how to make fresh, uncomplicated and long-lasting meals simply by interchanging a few basic proteins, vegetables, sauces, dressings, salsas and relishes.

"The concept is simple," says chef Witherspoon. "We've devised fresh, nutritious, delicious and transportable meals that can be eaten for dinner on the first day and then slightly adapted the following day with new flavors for variety." The dishes, which chef Witherspoon describes as "conscious cuisine," are easy to transport in plastic containers or thermal lunchboxes and can be easily packed for popping into the microwave. The dishes are rich in proteins, grains, vegetables and fruit, and the recipes contain minimal gluten, sugar or dairy products. "You'll be astonished by how a few simple steps can lead to amazing results," notes chef Witherspoon.
