The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School by Alison Cayne


This book was released on April 4, 2017. I received a copy through NetGalley.

Not only is this a cookbook, it reads like a cooking textbook, but very approachable. It has nine overall chapters/lessons with a specific food group for each, such as cooking eggs to teach timing or meat to teach temperature and heat. Each section has step by step instructions plus some recipes to try for practice. To teach mise en place, there’s a chapter on different kinds of fritters such as broccoli quinoa fritters or falafel.

I think this book would make a great gift for anyone who really wants to dive into cooking, or simply pick it up for yourself to learn something new. I like how along with basic cooking techniques there are a lot of international recipes to use them in, made simple for beginners. I would be happy to own a paper copy of this for myself.
