Book Description

Oct. 4 2011

The author of The Sharper Your Knife tells the inspiring story of how she helped nine others find their inner cook.

After graduating from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, writer Kathleen Flinn returned with no idea what to do next, until one day at a supermarket she watched a woman loading her cart with ultraprocessed foods. Flinn's "chefternal" instinct kicked in: she persuaded the stranger to reload with fresh foods, offering her simple recipes for healthy, easy meals.

The Kitchen Counter Cooking School includes practical, healthy tips that boost readers' culinary self-confidence, and strategies to get the most from their grocery dollar, and simple recipes that get readers cooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Both enjoyable to read and useful Nov. 11 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had read the previous book and enoyed it as a good story but I found this book to be very informational and very useful. First time I read it I made a homemade carrot soup and a stew on a Sunday and the family fell on it like ravening wolves. I came to understand cooking better and stopped buying prepackaged as it is not necessary. Right now have a beef barley soup in the crockpot and baked the book's artisan bread recipe without difficulty. First time I made that bread, everyone sat down and ate it hot with butter right from the oven. I am buying three copies for Xmas gifts for people I know. So yes, an excellent purchase as a story and a cookbook all in one. It belongs in the kitchen for sure. I hope to see more.

Really enjoyed this book by Kathleen Flynn- it helped me to organize my own thoughts for 'cooking school', and was inspiring to hear about people becoming confident because of well thought out freedom to experiment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I Cook! Oct. 16 2012
By Estal
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I always knew how to 'cook' basic meals and follow a recipe but now, after reading Kitchen Counter Cooking School, I have the confidence and enthusiasm to "COOK". I experiment and substitute and embellish with abandon and great success, if I do say so myself. I bake my own bread exclusively (haven't bought a loaf in months), I no longer by jars of sauces or virtually anything processed, and I actually had to replenish some of my herbs and spices because - for the first time - I'd used them up!

If you have any hesitation or uncertainty in the kitchen, this is the book for you. I cook healthier, heartier, cheaper, and with more variety all because of this book.
