The smitten kitchen cookbook

Perelman, Deb, author

Deb Perelman loves to cook. Cooking in her tiny Manhattan kitchen was, at least at first, for special occasions and, too often, an unnecessarily daunting venture. Deb found herself overwhelmed by the number of recipes available to her. Have you ever searched for the perfect birthday cake on Google? You'll get more than three million results. Where do you start? What if you pick a recipe that's downright bad? So Deb founded her award-winning blog, 'Smitten Kitchen', on the premise that cooking should be a pleasure, and that the results of your labour can and should be delicious - every time

"Utterly scrumptious. It's the kind of food you want to eat at homeeveryweekend"
Yotam Ottolenghi||"I'm a longtime fan of the blog and this is a wonderful cookbook"
Rachel Khoo, Little Paris Kitchen||Waitrose Kitchen||"Her food is creative, her writing chatty and discursive, and the sheer delight she takes in cooking things which work and give pleasure shines through on every page... Her attention to detail, partly a response to pernickety questions from readers seeking advice and clarification on her recipes, make her the perfect partner to hand-hold even the most bashful kitchen novice"
Mail on Sunday||"Smitten Kitchenreads like a conversation with a witty friend who can recommend the perfect nosh for any occasion"
O, The Oprah Magazine
