View Excerpt from book
Can everyone cook? That's a question I've frequently been asked. It seems prepared food marketers have been ultra-successful in convincing many that preparing a meal at home requires a culinary school diploma and a whole lot of time. 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. If you have those traits, learning to cook, or improving the cooking skills you already have, can be much easier than you think and a rewarding, taste filled experience.
