Callum Hann is back with a collection of recipes and sound advice that will give novice foodies the skills and the enthusiasm to become better, more knowledgeable, happier cooks. In addition to over 90 fast, fresh and simple recipes there is a wealth of information on cooking fundamentals, ranging from a guide to flavour combinations and advice on choosing the right restaurant - as well as tips for entertaining at home - through to techniques for preparing perfect seafood and buying and preparing seasonal ingredients. Recipes cover delicious breakfasts and brunches (maple bacon, asparagus, smashed avocado and feta on toast), things you can eat with your hands (spicy chicken tacos with apple and cabbage salsa), super quick meals (baked mac 'n' cheese with rosemary breadcrumbs), weeknight dinners, salads, food to impress a date (spice-crusted pork loin with apple cider glaze and figs; cherry fool) and essential rubs, dips, sauces and dressings.
After watching the poor diets and cooking habits of his friends, Callum Hann has developed a recipe book that caters to students and beginner chefs. Callum nabbed the second-place spot in the 2nd series of MasterChef Australia and, despite being all of 20, wowed the judges and the viewers with his exceptional cooking. He is now travelling around Australia, sharing his love of food and passion for cooking with young people all over the country.
