The Joy Of Better Cooking Book

$49.99

Confidence and intuition in the kitchen can be all yours! With a little help from the phenomenon that is Alice Zaslavsky in this joy-infused cookbook.

'Generous, empowering and original - like having your own cheerleader in the kitchen.' Anna Jones

'This is the very book you need to teach you how to be inspired, confident and happy in the kitchen. Like its author, it's a rambunctious delight!' Nigella Lawson

'Deliciously fun, informative and simply makes me smile. Joyful indeed!' Yotam Ottolenghi


If you already enjoy the eating part, you have everything it takes to find joy in cooking too. There's no pressure to be a great cook, but everyone can aspire to be a better cook, and therein lies the fun.

Let Alice Zaslavsky, bestselling author of In Praise of Veg, lead you on a journey to confident, intuitive cooking. This vibrant kitchen manual contains stacks of veg-forward recipes that you'll want to cook on a weekly basis, but the real gold lies in the handy kitchen skills and know-how that will help build the foundations for a lifetime of better cooking. Start with Slapdash (really outstanding stuff simply thrown together) then move to On Autopilot (great go-tos for weeknights on the fly) and Making the Most of It (gluts and leftover makeovers). Soon you'll be ready to Loosen Your Shoulders (weekend pottering and entertaining), just in time for some Seriously Good Sweeties (like, *seriously* good).

Whether you're already a dab hand, you're a battler who finds cooking a bit meh, or you're starting from 'which way do I hold the knife?', The Joy of Better Cooking has all the inspiration, hand-holding and cheerleading you need to relax into the rhythm and truly enjoy cooking for your family and friends.
