'Cooking without Recipes liberates you from the tyranny of someone else's culinary imagination. Do your own thing, it says; listen to the food, listen to your stomach and your palate; let cooking become second nature. It is the book my grandmother would have written if she had known how to frame a sentence, which Philip Dundas certainly does. Read, inwardly digest, then throw the book away. This is the first day of the rest of your life in the kitchen.' --From the foreword by Simon Callow
From the Author
Cooking without Recipes is about helping people to achieve their simplest ambitions in the kitchen. The premise is to encourage the self-confidence to make the dishes you want with ingredients which have been a pleasure to buy. Having helped you think about what, when and how you eat, the book shows how it's possible to cook with both information and inspiration. By evaluating what to buy at the supermarket and when at the local market, we'll begin to apply the need to the right outlet, rather than resentfully lumbering home with a car boot full of the usual or a carrier bag of over-priced unusable delicacies from the market.
