From my late teens I am reading cookbooks because I love reading cookbooks. I have special passion for them. So when I got the copy The Kitchen Counter Cooking School by Kathleen Finn who is also my Face book friend I take no time to finish it. After reading I found what Erica Bauermeister, author of The School for Essential Ingredients and Joy for Beginners said -“A life-changing book—entertaining, inspiring, and deeply educational” is absolutely right. A finished copy of the book is ready for you . You can win this fabulous book!
The book was inspired when Kathleen encountered a woman at the supermarket, loading up on processed foods. Taking a leap of faith, Kathleen persuaded the woman to abandon her overpriced convenience food for fresher alternatives and gave her a few simple recipes for easy meals. She realized what the woman lacked was simply the basic knowledge and confidence to be a home cook; she had found a new calling. Le Cordon Blue graduate Kathleen decided to use her recent culinary training to help a group of nine culinary novitiates find their inner cook. Kathleen in this book The Kitchen Counter Cooking School like a true friend show the reader to create simple recipes, make healthy choices, build culinary confidence and make most of their grocery shopping.
Kathleen feels there’s a disconnect in this country when it comes to food and cooking. On one hand, there’s a culture of hero worship around celebrity chefs that fuels cooking-as-a-spectator-sport on television. At the same time, marketers worked for decades to convince people that cooking themselves isn’t worth their time, and that even simple dishes fall outside their grasp. All this explains why one woman in the book told Kathleen, “I’m ashamed to admit it, but I’ve eaten Tuna Helper while watching Gordon Ramsey.” It’s a funny line about a serious problem. The rise of convenience food and decline of home cooking are inextricably correlated to the surge of obesity and diabetes. If people think they can’t cook, they put themselves at the mercy of companies whose interests are primarily financial to feed them instead. Kathleen believes in the power of home cooking and it’s her mission to help people find their way off the couch and into the kitchen.
Some of simple delicious and awesome recipes from The Kitchen Counter Cooking School.
I enjoyed the journey of Kathleen where her simple approach and elegant delectable yet easy recipes turned those nine culinary novice into fearless home cooks. A very entertaining and inspiring book. (Not officially on sale until October 3, 2011.)
