Publishers Text

Let's face it, who gets the opportunity these days to learn how to cook? The passed-down skills that once made up a family's kitchen lore are all but forgotten, schools no longer teach cooking and for the most, TV shows offer a vicarious experience of high-end chefs competing over tricky techniques. This inspiring new book, the first in a series of Annabel's Anyone Can Cook titles, is designed to provide people of all ages with the building blocks needed to become confident and successful cooks. Simple everyday ingredients and streamlined methods demystify the cooking process for those starting out in the kitchen. Annabel shares the skills that make the process fun, simple and 100 percent successful. Her mantra is building cooking confidence. Annabel's building-block approach to the recipes in this book means that a simple idea - whether a key ingredient or a flavour base - can be expanded into many recipes. For example, her teriyaki marinade makes not only teriyaki chicken and salmon kebabs but also chicken and vegetable noodle stir-fry, sticky spareribs, flavoursome sushi and Asian chicken salad. The recipes sound exotic and interesting and certainly they deliver this in taste, but the beginner cook will not be challenged in succeeding. An on-line companion delivers detailed information and videos and provides a unique interactive dimension. More than just a collection of easy and useful recipes, this brilliant book also provides the skills that allow anyone, no matter what their age or talents, to bring delicious food to the table.
