Synopsis

This handy little book will prove to be the perfect antidote to all your kitchen worries. Packed full of humorous quotes and witty quips, as well as invaluable tips and essential techniques, every home cook can be saved from the despair of a sunken souffle or learn how to save a mayonnaise that is threatening to split. Keep Calm and Cook On is littered with quotations that have been chosen from a variety of sources, from Michelin-starred chefs to historians, essayists and film stars. Those quoted include Nigella Lawson, Marcel Boulestin, Claudia Roden, Madame Benoit, Jane Grigson and many other luminaries of the world of food and cooking. These are timeless quotations that offer a wealth of wisdom and humour for both gourmands and novice cooks alike. Interspersed with the insightful quotes are practical tips and techniques that will help avoid any kitchen dilemnas and keep home cooks free of stress. Learn how to poach an egg to perfection, how to get the most juice out of your lemons and how to save overcooked vegetables. This delightful pocket-sized book will keep cooks out of trouble and in excellent humour, making sure that food never becomes a chore and always remains a pleasure.
