Poppy Cooks: The Food You Need (Hardback)Poppy O'Toole (author)
From easy flatbreads to exciting salmon tikka wraps and from sweet, airy meringue to Eton mess pancakes, the TikTok cookery star delivers a refreshing, vibrant and fun cookbook that helps the reader to nail down a repertoire of core recipes and skills and then use these in various inspiring adaptations.
Learn the basics. Up your cooking game. Delicious food every time.
This is a cookbook with no judgement. Together, we'll learn how to make incredible food at home. We'll start with the basics: 12 Core recipes (or go-to skills) that everyone needs to know, like how to make a pasta sauce, roast a chicken or make a killer salad dressing. Then we'll use these core skills as a base for delicious and adaptable recipes that will up your cooking game - the Staple, the Brunch, the Potato Hero (of course they make an appearance) and the Fancy AF.
So, once you've nailed that classic tomato sauce (which I promise will become the new go-to in your kitchen), you can stir it through pasta, or bake it with eggs for the perfect Shakshuka and, before you know it, you'll be getting real fancy and making a show-stopping Chicken Parmigiana to impress your friends.
Other chapters include: White Sauce: think Mac and Cheese and Bacon-y Garlicky Gratin. Flat Breads: easy flat breads for Halloumi Avo Breads and Salmon Tikka wraps. Emulsions: Chicken Caesar Salad with homemade mayo and next level Steak Bearnaise with Hollandaise and Crunchy Roast Chips. Meringue: from Eton Mess Pancakes through to Simply the Zest Lemon Meringue Pie
Whether you're completely new to the kitchen or looking to elevate your basics with clever tricks, my step-by-step guidance will help you nail delicious food every time. As a chef with over ten years' experience in professional kitchens, I've done the years of training so you don't have to. It's okay to make a few mistakes along the way, and together, we'll help you fix them and achieve incredible results at home.
I am passionate about the importance of great food at home, every day - it's what we all deserve. This is not just the food you want. It's the food you need.
