'The Great British Culinary Renaissance we hear so much about may have done many things - given us extra virgin olive oil, better restaurants and gastroporn - but what is hasn't done is teach us how to cook'.
HOW TO EAT is a book that does: part recipe collection, part culinary manifesto and part evocation of the pleasures of eating, it has hundreds of recipes and menus, but more than that, it encourages you to see cooking in context and, most important, to acquire a real understanding. It covers kitchen basics, children's food, everyday cooking, weekend lunch, the last-minute dinner party - and much more. But at its heart, it is about a feeling for food, a book to be read as well as cooked from.
HOW TO EAT is a book that wrests cooking back from the professional kitchens and the trendy menus to give confidence back to the ordinary, unexpert home cook. Unique, invaluable, comprehensive, this is a celebration of good food and an utterly modern kitchen vade mecum.
