Gizzi’s Kitchen Magic

Written by

Gizzi Erskine


04 March 2010

Gizzi Erskine's magic touch is simple – but effective. Instead of just dazzling one-off recipes, this cookbook will give you – the cook – confidence in the kitchen by helping you create the perfect meal every time. Gizzi will provide you with techniques and tips that make time spent in the kitchen a real success. From showing you how to master pasta dough and mix marvellous marinades, to foolproof pastry recipes and tips on how to make perfect poached eggs, Gizzi will ensure that cookery demons are a thing of the past.

As well as these techniques, Gizzi also adds an extra sparkle to some classic recipes. Whether it's sprinkling some rosemary into your millionaire's shortbread, infusing your chocolate fudge cake with Earl Grey, or combining old favourites in new ways – such as Mexican chicken tortilla soup – Gizzi's Kitchen Magic guarantees you'll soon be cooking with flair.
