He’ll walk you through the essential tools everyone needs, as well as the staples all cooks should have on hand.
Rookie Cooking will help you develop a repertoire of go-to dishes that you will enjoy both eating and preparing. The book shares 30 step-by-step recipes to get you started. With each new dish you prepare, your confidence will grow, and before you know it, your cooking will enter the big leagues, and your dinner guests will have full bellies.
