TV tie-in cookbook for beginners from a much-loved author and presenter
The cookbook that, finally, drives a blunt meat skewer through the burgeoning pseudo-intellectualism of foodie media, this is a foolproof manual packed with practical information and delicious recipes for even the most basic of home cooks. After years of shirking from his culinary duties, James is on a mission to educate himself about the world of food. In this TV tie-in, he seeks to unpack the mysteries of the industry from kitchen basics to haute cuisine, covering everything from poaching eggs to preparing the perfect Sunday roast. Gathering recipes and expert advice from celebrity chefs along the way, James discovers just what it takes to put together a cracking cookbook, from recipe testing to photography and everything in between.
