About the Author
Tom Kitchin opened his first restaurant, The Kitchin, on Edinburgh's Leith waterfront in 2006. In January 2007, The Kitchin was awarded a coveted Michelin star - only six months after opening. Since then Tom has received nationwide recognition with numerous accolades and awards for the restaurant in Edinburgh, including Observer Food Monthly's Restaurant of the Year (2010). Since his impressive success in BBC2's Great British Menu, Tom is regularly invited to appear on television - in BBC's Saturday Kitchen, Saturday Kitchen Best Bites, UKTV Food's Market Kitchen and on the final chef's table on BBC's Masterchef. His most recent TV appearance is on BBC Two's The Chef's Protege. This is his second cookbook and the first devoted to home cooking.

He already has one cookbook under his belt - the 2011 publication of 'From Nature To Plate'. Now in 2012 Kitchin has released his second cookbook - 'Kitchin Supplies'.
The book contains the following chapters:
- One-pan wonders - 20 Pages (9 recipes)
- Quick weekday suppers - 26 Pages (12 recipes)
- Leave it to cook - 20 Pages (8 recipes)
- Breads & savoury nibbles - 16 Pages (9 recipes)
- Easy starters - 22 Pages (10 recipes)
- Saturday supper - 26 Pages (11 recipes)
- Sunday roast - 24 Pages (14 recipes)
- Simple desserts - 22 Pages (10 recipes)
- Basic recipes - 4 Pages (7 recipes)
As you'd expect, throughout the length of the book there's a distinct Scottish note to the vast majority of the dishes. Aside from a one-page introduction, Kitchin gets straight on with the recipes, without any faffing around with pretentious coffee-table-book-niceties or the like.
Pretty much every recipe is detailed over a full page, with the adjoining page offering a full colour photograph of that particular dish. Furthermore, the recipes are detailed in simple, plain English, without the need to over-colourise the various techniques and ingredients involved.
On a number of recipes there's some helpful little hints and tips, such as how best to peel artichokes.Read more ›
Jamie's books have brought cooking, I believe, to men by rendering the exercise fast, tasty and in the form of an engineering problem. We are thinking number of pans, and orders of starting the heat. Tom Kitchin does not quite go as far into Cooking For Boys country but he does show you how to make some dishes that would not disgrace his restaurant in your kitchen. It is eminently practical and the dishes I have cooked from it were delicious. This is a cook-book that you can and, I hope, will use.
Update: The sausages and white bean casserole with herb crust was a big hit.
There is a section on Bread And Savoury Nibbles, Saturday Suppers and Sunday Roasts. There is even a section on Basic Recipes. All these recipes are clearly set out with lists of ingredients to source, careful explanations of how to prepare the dishes, and beautiful pictures to show what you should be able to expect from your efforts. Superb!
The sheer variety of the recipes included and the number of different ingredients used makes this a cookbook for everyone. No one is going to go hungry here! There is nothing overly complicated or requiring huge amounts of expertise in either the preparation or cooking. Even if you have never made Fish Stock or Mayonnaise yourself, this book will unlock the secrets in a straight forward, no nonsense way.
I thoroughly recommend this book. It is a cookbook for people who love food rather than cooking, and it shows just how easy it is to eat well, cook easily and enjoy food with friends.
There is plenty for a family roast including lemon & garlic roasted guinea fowl with sautéed potatoes, beef wellington (although this does involve an extended preparation process and some forethought for the ingredients list), roast loin of pork with savoy cabbage, apple & chestnuts and a roast leg of lamb served with ratatouille-stuffed tomatoes.
There's a nice selection of breads including a simple but unusual crispy pasta bread. One other thing I like is that there are a few recipes for things which act as an accompaniment for meat-eaters but form a main course for vegetarians. By way of example, there is a pumpkin & Parmesan gratin and also some lovely little courgette & aubergine filo tarts which are suggested as an accompaniment to roast lamb (and again they are a doddle to prepare). There is also a small selection of desserts although I won't be trying the prune clafoutis!Read more ›
