More About the Author

Many people are very surprised to hear that Gizzi Erskine was a professional body piercer in Camden before realising her life-long dream of being a chef. It wasn't until the age of 23 that, after 7 years of working in Cold Steel in Camden, Gizzi hung up her piercing tools and trained at the prestigious Leith's School of Food and Wine in 2003. She graduated the top of her year and went on to win a placement at BBC Good Food magazine, where she started to establish herself as an award winning food writer and stylist. During her first years at catering school she cheffed her way through many kitchens and started her own catering company with friend, Abbey Dempsey.

A career in TV started with the popular C4 primetime show, COOK YOURSELF THIN, which went onto a 2nd series in 2009, this time with Gizzi as the only host. With C4 firmly backing this exciting new talent, she has since appeared in IRON CHEF, COOKERY SCHOOL and DROP DOWN MENU for the channel. Gizzi joined Sky Living as a new face of the channel and hosted new series Cooks To Market alongside Gu founder James Averdick. The show saw amateur cooks be given the chance to turn their homemade food products into a life-changing business. The show will return for the second run early next year.

As a food writer, Gizzi is a Contributing Editor for InStyle, Sunday Times Style and Fabulous Magazine, and has written for a wide variety of magazines and newspapers such as Marie Claire, Elle, Elle USA, Vogue USA, GQ, The Times and The Evening Standard. She also recently had the honour of hosting the Observer Food Monthly awards alongside Jay Rayner.

GIZZI'S KITCHEN MAGIC, published by Virgin Books in 2009, was her first solo book and received critical acclaim during its release. Gizzi was the co-author of the hit cookbook COOK YOURSELF THIN, author of MY KITCHEN TABLE: 100 FOOLPROOF RECIPES and has also contributed to COOKERY SCHOOL by Richard Corrigan. Not one to rest on her laurels, her next book - SKINNY WEEKS AND WEEKEND FEASTS - is out at the end of March.

Always at the forefront of any trend, Gizzi was one of the first to back the trend of the pop-up restaurant scene having opened 4 pop-ups in the past 3 years; one with Innocent Smoothies at the Tramshed in Shoreditch, one at Clarence House in association with START the sustainability charity, a Tiki lounge at Bestival and an East London gourmet pie shop. She has cheffed at many supper clubs for guests like Boy George, Adam Ant, Sadie Frost, Pearl Lowe, Carl Barrat and Grace Woodward. Her most recent pop-up took inspiration from the Korean hole-in-the-wall scene in New York: Gizzi's 'K Town' at Concrete in Shoreditch was an underground eating, drinking and music venue with a menu that was created and cooked by Gizzi. Entertainment ranged from rockabilly, soul and ska bands, to live Korean burlesque and a Korean Elvis impersonator.

Gizzi has also teamed up with Italian restaurant Zizzi to mentor the next big thing in food - chef Joe Gray - as part of the Prince's Trust Tomorrow Campaign. Gizzi and Zizzi created a special three-course menu, which currently features in all restaurants nationwide to raise money for The Prince's Trust charity. Other mentors involved with the campaign include Zandra Rhodes, Kelly Hoppen, Rankin, Liz Earle and Wayne Hemingway.

Her edgy attitude has caught the attention of the fashion world and she regularly makes the fashion pages of the UK's style press. She has effortless style, unmistakably 60's with a Rockabilly twist, which has struck a chord with the public, helping her bridge the gap between food and fashion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic all rounder! 9 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I appreciate what the previous reviewer has said but I don't have Gizzi's Kitchen magic so this was a great addition to my collection! (and this is a collection of her 100 favourite fool proof suppers, so there was bound to be some crossover)
Gizzi has a really simple approach to her recipes but this doesn't mean they are boring by any measure! I love the asian influence in this book, Filipino rice, Massman curry, Korean pancakes are all delicious and like I say easy to prepare.
On the other hand you have BBQ wings which were fantastic and other wonderful comfort dishes such as the perfect beef stew, coq au vin and a whole host of other recipes.
If you like to try food from around the world then this book is for you!! I am working my way through all 100 and I probably will cook them all at some point! well done Gizzi and I look forward to your next book!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 18 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a previous reviewer wrote, this is almost an exact copy of Kitchen Magic. I do feel conned when I buy a book without any mention of most/all of the recipes coming from a previous book.
Had I seen this book before buying it I would have realized this straight away. Kitchen Magic is a great book, so if you don't have it, this is a great buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointed! 12 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I adore Gizzi Erskine. Seriously. Love her food, love her. Because of this I already have and love her Kitchen Magic book, and was disappointed to see that of the 100 recipes contained in this book, many were exact reprints of the ones in that book! Effectively I've duplicated that book (minus a lot of the helpful 'how to cook' tips) in THIS book. So that's why I'm disappointed. If I didn't have Kitchen Magic, I'd give this book 4 or 5 stars, because the recipes, and the woman behind them, are top drawer. I hate having to give this such a mediocre star rating.

If you haven't got Gizzi's Kitchen Magic, buy this. If you have, still buy this, but be aware of the duplication. For the price it is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tasty easy to do recipes 2 May 2013
By jmstne
We love this book! It has loads of recipes for such a small book and each one looks delicious. They're all fairly quick and not overly complicated. The belly pork with plum and apple sauce is a big hit. Def have a look at a copy.
