Sam Stern has made his name inspiring young people to cook since his bestselling first book Cooking Up A Storm, written when he was just 14 years old. His books have gone on to sell over 700,000 copies worldwide. Sam's latest book is for anyone making their first foray into the kitchen or for those wanting to take basic skills to the next level - a comprehensive and inspiring cookery course for students of all ages in the kitchen. Confidence in the kitchen comes with understanding - and this book explains everything about the equipment you need and the ingredients you use. Introductory pages to each chapter contain information, diagrams and step-by-step guides to everything from selecting cuts of meat and preparing fresh fish to basic baking techniques and cooking perfect rice. Each of these introductory sections will teach you an ingredient's 'friends' - so, mushrooms pair well with bacon and blue cheese. In this way, Sam will teach you the building blocks of cuisine and the secret to making food with great flavour. The recipes in this cookery course adopt the same building block approach.
If you're starting from the very beginning, Sam teaches you how to boil, poach or scramble an egg, then make a simple omelette, frittata, or souffle. Learn how to master a tagliatelle ragu, for example, and you'll have added a classic lasagne to your culinary arsenal too. Master a classic white loaf and you'll soon be making homemade pizza. There are only so many meals you'll ever cook - let Sam show you how to make each one special.
