My new cookbook, You Can Cook This!
4 things you need to know...
Welcome to Leftovers - or welcome back! This month is a pretty BIG month for me and everyone who has played a part in the making of my new book.
I’ll let you in on a little secret, I’m a bit a nervous, slightly anxious and there’s some excitement mixed in there as well. Do me a massive favour and continue reading, if you resonate with anything I say, please do pre-order a copy of my book - it would mean the world to me!
For 2 years I asked my online community which foods they threw away and wasted the most.
I received over 75,000 replies and I discovered that there are 15 ingredients commonly wasted in most households around the world.
What I decided to do next was write a cookbook with those 15 ingredients in mind. There are roughly 8 recipes per hero ingredient - this makes cooking the food you already have a lot easier - saving you time, money and food waste.
