This is a cookbook designed for readers who assume they can’t cook because they’ve never tried. Cooking is a big, scary world filled with weird terms. What exactly is a skillet? What’s the difference between a steak and a fillet? If the directions say 350 degrees for 60 minutes, can I do 700 degrees for 30?
If you’ve ever asked one of these questions, this book is for you. Not only does it contain 70 recipes for everything from breakfast to desert, but also several pages of definitions, ingredient substitutions, conversion factors (not as scary as it sounds), and a list of the 15 tools you need to get started making delicious meals.
The recipes assume no prior knowledge. Things, like hard-boiling an egg, are explained right in the recipes. Every recipe is easy to follow so its easy to cook. That’s why I say: If you can read, you can cook.
