A culinary road map of time-saving kitchen solutions and delicious dishes for every day of the week
We’re all busy. We can all appreciate using a recipe that we know will cut down on time, expense and even dishes. Curtis Stone maintains that the first step to ensuring a successful meal is to achieve confidence in the kitchen, and so this classically trained, world-renowned, celebrity chef has provided home cooks of all levels with 130 effortless, but inspired, fail-proof recipes that showcase ingredients and can be cooked quickly on any night of the week.
He also provides dozens of notes on techniques, tricks and shortcuts that will make home cooking a fun and flavoursome experience for the whole family.
Curtis’s philosophy is cook, create, celebrate – and these dishes do just that.
Curtis's food philosophy places an emphasis on fresh, local, seasonal produce (with a nod to sustainable development and ethical farming practices), exploration of different food cultures, and the ability of food to bring family and friends together. For Curtis it is about the total cooking experience - bringing confidence to the kitchen and happiness to the table.
