It will feed ten hungry friends, the man of your dreams, your lovely gran; even providing a bite to eat for all those inspired in-between moments.

From meeting the ex to 'dinner parties', 'the break-up' to 'hangover food', food writer Katrina Meynink caters for all of life's curious and quirky situations. Part tongue-in-cheek, part heart-in-hand, part survival guide, Kitchen Coquette is a cookbook that will make you feel surges of culinary awesomeness and give you a sense of achievement. It will encourage you to embrace all those tear ruined, sweaty palmed and swear-word fuelled moments of life. All while providing the dish that suits.
