Ruby Tandoh wants us all to cook, and this is her cookbook for all of us - the real home cooks, juggling babies or long commutes, who might have limited resources and limited time. From last-minute inspiration to delicious meals for one, easy one-pot dinners to no-chop recipes for when life keeps your hands full, Ruby brings us 100 delicious, affordable and achievable recipes, including salted malted magic ice cream, one-tin smashed potatoes with lemony sardines and pesto and an easy dinner of plantain, black beans and eden rice.

This is a new kind of cookbook for our times: an accessible, inclusive and inspirational addition to any and every kitchen. You don't have to be an aspiring chef for your food to be delectable or for cooking to be a delight. Cook as you are.

Review quote

Great recipes, of course, but also a wealth of modern kitchen wisdom. Practical, straight-talking, endlessly inspirational - this is Ruby at her best. -- Nigel Slater Cook As You Are is not simply a recipe book, but a warm invitation to relax into and enjoy the experience of cooking and eating. Ruby Tandoh offers understanding, encouragement, and completely glorious food. -- Nigella Lawson I genuinely think Cook As You Are is one of the best, most interesting cookbooks I've seen in a long time. I couldn't put it down. I love the illustrations, the notes about realistic seasonality and that Ruby credits properly and gives a proper platform to cuisines that don't always get a lot of exposure. -- Ravneet Gill Beautiful, practical and a total game-changer -- Ella Risbridger, author of Midnight Chicken Full of accessible, affordable and inspiring recipes - I'd recommend it for everyone from novice cooks looking for a helping hand in the kitchen, to keen cookbook buyers looking for new inspiration -- Rukmini Iyer, author of The Roasting Tin Ruby Tandoh once again shows us what eating can be instead of what it is - something usually defined by the white gaze using white hands to signpost for us what is trendy, culturally relevant and acceptable. As a gifted guide through the journey of her own adventures as a cook, Tandoh makes her identity and experience a central focus point for what she is sharing here - a gorgeous selection of recipes that have risen from her lived experience of being of and in the world as a human consuming her culture and experience - something we all do every day but less deftly explain. -- Zoe Adjonyoh, author of Zoe's Ghana Kitchen A wonderful read, whatever you eat. -- Reni Eddo-Lodge
