The Good Cook (Hardback)Simon Hopkinson (author)
Simon Hopkinson loves food and he knows how to cook it. The Good Cook is the result of over 40 years' experience and is based on Simon's belief that a good cook loves eating as much as cooking.
How the ingredients you choose and the way you cook them will turn a good recipe into a great dish. That a cheap cut of meat cooked with care can taste as nice as a choice cut prepared by indifferent hands.
Structured around Simon's passion for good ingredients (Anchovy and Aubergine, Cheese and Wine, Smoked and Salted Fish, Ham, Bacon and A Little Pig) and written with Simon's trademark perfectionism and precision, this is a cookbook that you will cherish for life.

No-nonsense is the key to The Good Cook. It returns the pie, the tart, the cutlet, the leftover, the pot roast and the toasted snack to the centre of the British eating experience * The Independent *
The book is, in true Simon Hopkinson style, precise without ever being fussy. * Rachel Allen *
The Good Cook reminds me of a cashmere jumper. Its origins are humble, it feels ever so slightly decadent, but ultimately it is enormously comforting. * Caterer & Hotelkeeper *
