We are thrilled to be offering you the chance to win one of five copies of The New Art of Cooking, the gorgeous debut cookbook from food stylist Frankie Unsworth.
To celebrate the publication of Frankie’s book we’ve teamed up with Bloomsbury Publishing for this exciting giveaway competition.
The New Art of Cooking showcases the many styling tips and tricks to make food that looks as good as it tastes with trade secrets from top professional food stylist Frankie Unsworth. It’s true that ‘we eat with our eyes’, and this beautiful, clever book provides a fantastic toolkit straight from the world of professional food styling. It promises to change the way you cook for ever.
Packed with easy tips including how to:
- Bruise, cut, chiffonade or blitz herbs to best effect
- Burn or grill citrus fruit to caramelise and concentrate flavour – adding an interesting twist to fish and seafood
- Slice veg for a super-clean finish or rip and tear for a rustic feel
- Add edible flowers for a final flourish
Recipes cover breakfasts (including the delicious-sounding ‘chocolate granola shards’), snacks, seasonal salads, soups and bowl foods such as ‘herby spelt and yoghurt flatbreads’, ‘asparagus mimosa’ and ‘courgette, pancetta and lemon spaghetti’. From small plates to big dishes and celebration feasts for friends and family with ‘Eton mess ice cream sandwiches’ and the ‘Ultimate chocolate cake’, not only will your cooking taste wonderful, it will look better than ever too.
