After graduating from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, the author of the bestseller The Sharper Your Knife had no idea what to do next, until one day at a supermarket she watched a woman loading her cart with processed foods. Kathleen Flinn's "chefternal" instinct kicked in, and she persuaded the stranger to reload the cart with fresh produce. Recognizing that many people make poor eating choices because they aren't adept in the kitchen, she set out to turn nine amateurs into competent cooks. This memoir introduces her apprentices, and provides you with the recipes and helpful tips that they learned.
"Flinn guides you patiently in the kitchen like the mom you always wish you'd had to learn to cook from...the women gained confidence under Flinn's wonderfully encouraging tutelage, and fearlessly faced their kitchens and grocery stores with useful knowledge."—Publishers Weekly
