The Art of Simple Food

by Alice Waters

‘This books is for everyone who wants to learn to cook, or to become a better cook. I’m convinced that the underlying principles of good cooking are the same everywhere. These principles have less to do with recipes and techniques than they do with gathering good ingredients, which for me is the essence of cooking.’ Alice Waters

With an essential repertoire of timeless, approachable recipes chosen to enhance and showcase great ingredients, The Art of Simple Food is a must-have book for home cooks.

Here you will find Alice’s philosophy on everything from stocking your kitchen, to mastering the fundamentals of basic cooking techniques, to preparing delicious, seasonally inspired meals all year long. Always true to her belief that a perfect meal is one that is balanced in texture, colour and flavour, Waters helps us embrace seasonal produce and make the best choices when selecting ingredients.

Embark on a voyage of culinary rediscovery with her as she takes you by the hand and teaches you how to get the most out of your home cooking.

 

‘The Art of Simple Food is a joy to read. More than just another cookbook from the inspiring Alice Waters, it is the story of her life’s philosophy about good food, full of gems drawn from meals eaten all over the world. This is one of the great reference books that every smart cook will have next to their stove.’  Rose Gray, The River Café, London
