Revue de presse

"You'll wish your mama had packed you these lunches. Fast, easy, healthy and delicious!" (Bobby Deen, host of Cooking Channel's "Not My Mama's Meals")

"This is not your average “been there, done that” lunch-packing idea book. This is revolutionary. This will change lives of many a parent (starting with me)." (Melissa d'Arabian, host of Food Network's Ten Dollar Dinners)

“J.M. Hirsch gets you thinking out of the (lunch) box by inventing alternative ways to prepare and package the usual suspects, introducing completely new ideas (pizza sushi anyone?) and offering terrific strategies that makes it seem so do-able. Heck, he makes lunch box cuisine fun!!” (Sara Moulton, host of public television's Sara's Weeknight Meals)

"Balanced, clever lunch-time fodder – just the recipe for happy kids, every day of the week." (Jamie Oliver)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Longing for more than yet another limp salad? Tired of tussling with the kids over junk food lunch kits? Sounds like you’ve got the lunch box blues. J. M. Hirsch has the fix.

But it isn’t a cookbook. Because when it comes to lunch, nobody has time to break out a recipe to bang out a brown bag special. Busy people need lunch ideas. Lots of them. And those ideas need to be healthy, fast, easy, affordable, and delicious.

That’s what Beating the Lunch Box Blues is—an idea book to inspire anyone daunted by the daily ordeal of packing lunch. Jammed with nearly 200 photos and more than 500 tips and meals, this book is designed to save families time, money, and their sanity.

Whether you want to jazz up a grilled cheese, turn leftover steak into a DIY taco kit, or make pizza “sushi,” Hirsch has it covered. And because the best lunches often are built from the leftovers of great suppers, he has also included 30 fast and flavorful dinner recipes designed to make enough for tomorrow, too. Crazy good stuff like short ribs braised in a Rosemary-Port Sauce, Hoisin-Glazed Meatloaf, and kid-friendly classics such as Turkey Sloppy Joes and American Chop Suey.

With ideas this easy and this delicious, there’s no reason to let the lunch box blues get you down.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fantastic Lunch Box Idea Book 7 septembre 2013
Par W. Copley - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is not a traditional cookbook. Though it does have some recipes in it, most of the book is made up of gorgeous photos and clever ideas. As Hirsch notes, most people don't want to cook elaborate recipes in the mornings to take or send in a lunch box. Instead people assemble lunches. This book is packed with novel, clever, fun ideas that can be combined in endless combinations to make a delicious lunch.

The book is divided into a dozen or so sections. There are the expected lists of packing tips, suggested lunch gear, and pantry staples along with ideas for basics like chicken, seafood, and beef. But there are also whole categories that are terrifically creative and fresh. Breakfast for lunch? He suggests 14 different ideas -- most of which I've never seen before. In a salad rut? There are a dozen ideas for turning your favorite deli sandwiches into a creative salad. He also includes 30 easy dinner recipes and accompanies each with two ideas for turning the leftovers into a new lunch the next day. Killing two birds with one stone is A-OK with me.

If you're a parent looking to make the morning lunch packing routine go a little faster you should note that this is not a book filled entirely with "kid food". My boys are fairly adventurous eaters, but a lot of the recipes in this book would be a really tough sell with them. I would eat most of them happily. My kids? Not so much. Still, there are plenty of ideas for food that I think they would like, including: pizza sushi, peanut butter and pretzel sandwiches, and apples sauteed with brown sugar and butter and packed into a thermos to be eaten with freezer waffles. Yum!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Perfect for "Grown-up" Lunches!!! 6 septembre 2013
Par Heather Lewis - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I had to put the book down after one third of it because my brain was going a mile minute with the insane amount of inspiration that was crammed on every page!

This is everything I have been looking for to make non-fussy adult lunches. I already take my own lunches to work at least three days out of the week, and I'm super excited to apply all the fantastic ideas that I've gleaned from this book.

I just can't put into words how gorgeous the photos are, how inventive the flavor combos are, or how absolutely SIMPLE it all is to put together! I just wish there were little notes on where to get all the little containers, like the ones uses for salad dressings, but that is more of a personal fixation with cute vessels and not a real complaint :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Book of Ideas More Than a Cookbook 3 septembre 2013
Par Books and Chocolate - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a fun book of ideas and a few recipes for getting out of the lunch box rut. With suggestions that adults and kids alike will enjoy, it is filled with beautiful color photographs which is always a plus for a book about food.

What I like about this little book is the focus on fresh ingredients and the inspiration for creating unique lunches I might not have thought about beyond last night's leftovers or throwing together a sandwich. Those make fine lunches but sometimes those who pack one every day want something different. It isn't that we really need a book to get us to think of new ideas on our own, but the sugggestions in this one can lead to even more as we work with what is in the fridge or pantry.

The book includes suggestions for making things like yogurt and even oatmeal a main meal with nutritious additions, ideas for sandwich wraps and salads, turning the convenience of already prepared food from the deli or a restaurant into balanced lunches, making kids' meals more appealing so they actually eat them, and suggestions for the types of portable containers that are best for keeping lunches fresh and mess-free.

One section of the book has recipes for family dinners that can become the foundation for a packed lunch the next day with a few additions, as well as recipes that can be made ahead and frozen for quick lunches. I also liked the suggestion to consider having certain foods cold that we would normally have heated such as an an English muffin pizza with a little sauce and slices of Canadian bacon and cheese.

While most of the focus is on budget and convenience, a few of the recipes require more planning and might seem a little exotic for a packed lunch such as sushi or puffed pastry pinwheels, but most rely on readily available ingredients with easy preparation.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A little too sophisticated for my kids 23 janvier 2014

This was not really what I was expecting - less of a cookbook and more of suggestions. While the photos are gorgeous, but I found the layout confusing and overwhelming at times (so much to see, not really sure where to look).

I liked the idea of cooking dinner and using leftovers for lunch the next day - so practical and helpful. However, even after reading through the book several times, I am still not really clear what to make or where to start.

Many of the suggestions made are for much older kids (perhaps even adults taking a lunch to work?). My kids are in elementary school and would definitely turn their noses up at "sourdough smeared with Brie and topped with a drippy hunk of honeycomb" or a "baguette + fresh goat cheese + prosciutto + a drizzle of honey."

I also wonder about the packability about some of the suggestions - for example: waffle open-faced sandwich (which is a waffle with ricotta cheese topped with fresh fruit). I would imagine the waffle would be pretty soggy and I doubt the fruit would stay in place until lunch.

A lot of the suggestions required multiple containers - like DIY nachos or crostini (toasted bread topped with cherry tomatoes) - and assembling at lunch. I know my kids have a fairly short lunch period, and not sure assembly is really feasible.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Ideas Lost in a Sea of Pictures 1 mai 2016
Par Katherine Chan - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Beating the Lunch Box Blues is a book about creating Bento lunchboxes - but the lazy version of it. It's essentially the "I want to make pretty bento for my kids, but I don't have time and I don't want to feed them those crappy lunchables type packaged stuff". In fact, on the first page of the book, the Hirsch takes the time to make make fun of traditional bento for it's cutesy cut out flowers and smiling rice animals. I'm fine with that - I don't always have time to make awesome bentos - but I didn't really care for the sheer amount of "repackaging food to make it look pretty" that this book endorses.

When it all boils down, this book is primarily about pictures of pairing leftovers or prepackaged food smartly. Some of the ideas are just silly - for instance, one of the ideas focuses around giving your kids oatmeal for lunch...oatmeal that you made too much from breakfast. "Just pop it in a thermos, add peanut butter and jelly for a warm, sweet, and filling lunch." Another laughable lunch is to repackage shrimp cocktail in your kid's lunch that you buy from a seafood counter and serve with prepackage sliced fruit.

While seeing these pages were annoying, I did like the recipe pages which featured two alternative ways to serving. As an example, the left page would feature a chicken tender recipe, and the corresponding right page would feature two ways to serve the chicken tenders as a repurposed dinner to lunch. These ideas were fun and creative, and I think if the author made a full book like that, it would have made much more sense.

One thing I really didn't like about this book is that the tips and some of the remix recipe ideas are all over the place. An example of this is for the use of leftover bacon. On page 114, the author suggests using leftover bacon in a tomato and vinaigrette mix. This in itself is a great idea, but because the book is not categorized by food item, nor is it notated in the index in the back of the book, a great tip like it is easily lost. You will have to actively search for ideas through this book and remember them. While recipes like this is common sense for some people, I can imagine others who don't know how to pair food items easily would miss tips like this. Other recipes, such as his phyllo dough pastry cup recipes, are peppered throughout - you just need to find them all. To really get the full benefits of this book, you will need to notate the pages a lot to be able to find the specific ideas for each quick tip item he suggests.

Overall, while I liked some of the ideas in this book and the one dinner to two lunches recipe pages, this book is difficult to navigate easily, and I hated the amount of pages that were "buy packaged stuff and serve together this way".
