Learn the basics. Up your cooking game. Delicious food every time.
This is a cookbook with no judgement. Together, we'll learn how to make incredible food at home. We'll start with the basics: 12 Core recipes (or go-to skills) that everyone needs to know, like how to make a pasta sauce, roast a chicken or make a killer salad dressing. Then we'll use these core skills as a base for delicious and adaptable recipes that will up your cooking game - the Staple, the Brunch, the Potato Hero (of course they make an appearance) and the Fancy AF. So, once you've nailed that classic tomato sauce (which I promise will become the new go-to in your kitchen), you can stir it through pasta, or bake it with eggs for the perfect Shakshuka and, before you know it, you'll be getting real fancy and making a show-stopping Chicken Parmigiana to impress your friends.
