Almost every home cook has had a disaster in the kitchen. Soggy croutons, over-whipped egg whites, watery custard, there’s no such thing as an overnight prodigy. Author of The Kitchen Therapist, Jo Richardson, knows this.

That’s why this cookbook is all about getting back to basics – because as we all know, with solid foundations, your hobby can fast become an art. Throughout her 25 year career in many corporate test kitchens (including KitchenAid!), Jo Simpson has immersed herself in all things food. Now, she passing the most essential knowledge on to you.

The Kitchen Therapist will have you mastering the basics of the kitchen to revitalise your enthusiasm for cooking; everything from boiling a humble egg, to creating the perfect sponge cake. While such recipes may sound simple on the surface, the book will present plenty of tips and tricks to make your favourite desserts, mains and sides taste perfect, with images of how they're supposed to look and not look.
