By Nick Nairn
Everyone thinks they know how to cook a steak. But do you know how to listen to your pan to find out whether it's too hot or too cold? How do you know when it's rare or well done? And what type of steak should you be cooking anyway? The Nick Nairn Cook School Cookbook cuts through this kitchen confusion by breaking down recipes into basic techniques, produce and equipment needed and includes tips from some of the country's top chefs. Split into three sections, the book is structured as a learning progression. From First Steps such as choosing and using produce, essential equipment and the philosophy of cooking to Essential Techniques, with easy-to-follow step-by-step photography and on to recipes including useful techniques and exercises to test your skills. You will progress from the simplest recipes to dishes for a dinner party for your friends or a satisfying supper for your family.
