About this book
A fully revised and updated edition of this cookbook which cuts through the jargon and over-elaborate preparation myths, and presents effective and easy-to-follow recipes. 'A gem' Nigel Slater
Answers the questions you always wanted to ask and solves those frustrating kitchen conundrums - why do some writers tell you to wash and soak rice before cooking while others never mention it? Why won't mince brown the way they tell you? Will an aubergine really taste better if you sweat it with salt first?
