From elsewhere in The Post: Nancie McDermott’s cooking style is a draw for young chefs in the making. Just ask All We Can Eat blog contributor Domenica Marchetti, whose daughter Adriana is a McDermott fan.

“McDermott is the author of numerous cookbooks, including a series of Asian ones that are filled with recipes that are simple and accessible, and yet authentic: ‘Quick and Easy Thai,’ ‘Quick and Easy Vietnamese,’ ‘Quick and Easy Chinese.’ They are a great introduction for kids who want to learn about, and cook, Asian food — as long as they are old enough to use sharp knives to chop,” Marchetti says.

Find out one of Adriana’s preferred McDermott dishes, and why this recipe leaves plenty of room for creativity.
