Best kitchen basics : a chef's compendium for home

For chef Mark Best, the art of cooking is to take a simple ingredient and turn it into something beautiful. With this selection of more than 90 recipes and techniques that he has developed during his 25 year career, he shares how easily this can be done.

Best Kitchen Basics ups the ante on the familiar. Mark’s philosophy is that great cooking is not a question of luxurious ingredients but it’s having the knowledge and wherewithal to unlock the beauty of some of the most basic elements of cooking.

In addition to recipes, Mark takes readers on “skills sessions”, unpacking some of the building blocks that he believes have been lost. Step-by-step guides will include the art of puff pastry, the perfect consommé, and mastering sourdough at home. Peppered throughout the book are snippets including technical detail, casual observations and stories. He also debunks myths and kitchen lore surrounding ingredients and cooking - such as searing meat to keep the juices in. His verdict - “don’t do it!”

Originally inspired by a well-thumbed recipe collection left to him by Margaret Hebbard, his beloved grandmother (“Little Nanna”), Best Kitchen Basics is an accessible, engaging book that will prompt cooks to take their skills and mindset to another level.
