Despite his reputation for intricate and impressive restaurant cooking, Gary Rhodes believes that the best way to cook something is often the most simple. In his latest book, he is going back to basics, in search of the very easiest way to get maximum flavour out of familiar ingredients from chicken to squid and beetroot to rhubarb. In over 180 simple recipes, he demonstrates the fundamentals of cooking and explains how to get the best results by doing as little as possible. But this is not just a brilliant cookbook for beginners and an essential bible for busy people, it is also a tribute to simplicity and flavour and an invaluable reference book for cooks of every level. From the perfect roast beef to the best sauce to serve with lemon sole, from the easiest way to cook scallops to the ten simplest puddings in the world, Gary shares his incredible knowledge and passion and shows just how easy cooking can be.Gary Rhodes is a Michelin starred chef who appears regularly on television and has written over 15 books.
This is the first time, he has focussed on the art of simple cooking and so this book will be totally different from his others while still having all the integrity, passion and expertise for which he is famous. By explaining the whys and wherefores of basic cooking techniques and encouraging experimentation and focussing on the simplicity of delicious food, the book will stand out from other back-to-basics cookery courses and will appeal to experienced cooks as well as beginners.
