Most of my recipes will serve two people, but you can double up if you have a family to feed.
Any unfamiliar techniques used, will link to my cooking glossary so you can learn how to do them.
Cooking more than you need, and freezing the rest, can save you time. So I will give instructions, where appropriate, for how to package and store your cooking in the freezer, and how to reheat it safely, later.
I will help you build up a well stocked pantry or store cupboard, so that all the essential ingredients are to hand.
What equipment will you need?
Stocking a kitchen with the necessary tools, equipment and gadgets can prove expensive. I will talk you through the must haves, nice to haves and the can-do-withouts.
After all, if money is tight you don't want to waste it on gadgets that are used once and then pushed to the back of the cupboard never to be seen again!
Depending on where you live in the world, you may use a different measuring system to me. Not to worry. The conversion charts will help you follow the recipes, whatever form of measurement you use.
I have also included a handy chart for converting oven temperatures so you can follow my recipes whether you cook by gas or electricity.
So what are you waiting for? Let's learn to cook!
