Cooking Lessons by Daisy Garnett is more of a novel from the kitchen than a cookbook, crammed full of stories and home-style recipes.
A wonderful insight in to the life of a foodie, the book follows author Daisy and her lifetime experience with food - from her childhood days in her family kitchen to her move to New York and city cooking in her adulthood. As Daisy shares her experiences, her beautifully illustrated food diary is periodically interrupted with lessons on how to cook various dishes to perfection.
With family classics such as Gingerbread and delicious sounding Potatoes Dauphinoise, and more unique dishes such as Pine Nut Ice Cream and Spaghetti With Squid And Courgette, there's sure to be a dish to inspire your love of food. If you missed out the day when you're elders were handing down the family cooking secrets then this book will give you a more than needed top-up.
