Tired of cookbooks with a mess of complicated instructions, exotic ingredients, and completely unachievable photographs of food that only a chef could prepare? Then The Basics is for you - hundreds of easy to follow recipes with simple ingredients for fast everyday meals. Includes rescue remedies for when things go wrong, substitute ingredients for those times when the cupboard is bare, and handy explanations of all those obscure or tricky cookbook terms that other cookbooks assume you understand. With recipes ranging from roast chicken to lasagne and baked cheesecake, The Basics is a cookbook for everyone from the beginner just leaving home to the more confident cook who wants daily inspiration and a great collection of delicious everyday recipes. Anthony Telford was the presenter of the cooking segment on 9am with David and Kim and featured on Ready, Steady, Cook on Channel 10, chef, and author of The Kitchen Hand, the highly successful and indispensable guide to kitchen wisdom. He lives in Byron Bay with his partner and seven children.
