Are you always trying to make a cake, pudding or roast chicken and finding that it keeps turning out the same - dull and average! It's time for the Kitchen Therapist to turn your everyday cooking into gorgeous looking dishes that taste as good as they look! A lot of simple recipes are ruined when the food is left for too long in the oven, not enough liquid is used in the sauce or the frying pan just has to much oil in it. This book is an easy-to-read instruction manual about the common mistakes that family and everyday cooks make when they are preparing standard recipes. Over 75 recipes are included, which include the recipe on how to make the dish, and a picture of the perfect sample. Each recipe also includes a picture of how the recipe can go wrong, and points about what the common mistakes are. The introduction includes what equipment you need to have a fully functioning kitchen and basic ingredients that every kitchen should have as well. There are sections on which herbs to buy and a few basics about baking are included. Chapters include Eggs, Breads, Potatoes, Rice Dishes, Meat, Fish, Chicken, Vegetables, Sauces and Baking.
