How to be a Better Cook Pack Shot

Lorraine Pascale’s new cookery book ‘How To Be A Better Cook’ aims to help inspire new and experienced cooks with Lorraine’s best tips and tricks to give a helping hand in the kitchen. Divided into eight sections including canapes & cocktails, Lorraine Pascale starters, mains including chicken, meat and fish, vegetables and desserts and treats there is bound to be something that appeals. There are 100 quick and easy recipes, a lot of them look very impressive and not for beginners but Lorraine’s step by step instructions guide you through making the seemingly impossible, possible. Who could fail to be impressed with a serving of Harissa Lamb Lollipops with Pea and Mint Hummus and Lemon?

Lorraine Pascale There is a good balance of recipes, from child friendly ones, to recipes that will wow family and friends at a dinner party. My children will love the Scary ‘Mummy’ Sausages rolls and Ghostly Black-Eyed Meringues.

I’m not convinced all the recipes are particularly quick…unless I am a really really slow cook, and I sometimes get a little nervous if there is a long list of ingredients or instructions but don’t let this put you off. As long as you follow the instructions the recipes are all achievable even if you are not an experienced cook. Even I managed to make these rolls or ‘scrolls’.

Onion and Bacon Rolls

I adapted them slightly and will post the recipe soon.

There are lots of glossy photos in the book, something which I always look for because I like to know what a recipe is ‘supposed’ to look like. I am especially looking forward to trying Lamb Barbacoa, Roasted Beetroot and Apple with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds and S’Mores Pops. To accompany the book Lorraine’s new television series on BBC2 helps people to become better cooks.
