Escape the tyranny of celebrity chefs and domestic goddesses. This is the book that tells you what other cookbooks leave out

Do you ever look at a recipe and think, 'Where am I supposed to get a hold of goose fat?' Or, 'I'll never be able to pull that off!'

On average, people cook no more than two dishes from each cookbook they buy. Why? Because most of the other recipes seem just too daunting.

This is where Nicholas Clee comes to the rescue. He shows you a new approach to cooking, teaches you how to experiment with ingredients, and gives you the confidence not to have to follow recipes to the letter.

Don't Sweat the Aubergine tells you what other cookbooks leave out, answers the questions you always want to ask and clarifies all those maddening inconsistencies - why do some writers tell you to wash and soak rice before cooking, while others never mention it? Why won't mince brown the way they tell you? Will an eggplant taste better or cook more easily if you sweat it with salt beforehand?

Written in Clee's easy, wry style, and packed with his own selection of jargon-busting recipes which will deliciously broaden your range of standbys, this is the last cookbook you will ever need to buy.
