I wanted to write a cookery book with great recipes, to appeal to all levels of skill: but to write it in such a way that even the least confident would-be cook could pick it up and feel encouraged to have a go.
It's such a great thing to be able to cook and feed yourself and your family properly, to choose your own ingredients and know exactly what is in your food. It's something everybody ought to be able to do. Many of the present generation of parents have fond memories of their mum's, or maybe their grandmother's cooking, but don't feel confident of their ability to cook memorable meals for their own children.
Quite often, you haven't had the opportunity to learn as a child, and you can become an adult, maybe even living in your own home, and still not be entirely sure about certain of aspects of everyday cooking.
Traditionally, mums taught their children to cook, but in recent generations, many mums have been out at work and there has been no time to pass on skills. Cookery used to be taught more widely in schools, but now it is more likely to be taught in a block of a few weeks, as part of a combined course of practical lessons. The emphasis is often on catering as a career, rather than on actual home cooking.
I'd like this book to encourage novice cooks and help them on their way, and provide experienced cooks with a good collection of recipes and fresh ways of doing things.
