Can everyone cook? That’s a question I’ve been asked frequently since I published the first cookbook in my Everyone Can Cook series in 2003. More than nine years later, and seven books into the series, my response to that query has remained the same: Yes, they can!
To me, it’s not whether or not you can cook; it’s whether or not you have the desire, the confidence and the inspiration to do so. If you have those traits, learning to cook, or improving the cooking skills you already have, can be a very tasty experience.
If you don’t have those traits, I hope that my cookbooks and this website will help you develop them. But I’m also writing for those of you who already enjoy cooking, but are seeking a reliable source of straightforward but delicious recipes, great cooking tips and other practical culinary information. See "What's Cooking" below for links to my recent newspaper columns, recipes and other exploits.
