The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School Review

Artisan Books partnered with me to support an exciting new cookbook!

I love cookbooks. I enjoy trying new recipes and learning new techniques in the kitchen. One of my new favorite cookbooks is THE HAVEN’S KITCHEN COOKING SCHOOL by Alison Cayne!

It was released back in April, which has me wondering why it has taken so long to discover. Cayne takes the essential skills gleaned from her popular cooking school classes at Haven’s Kitchen for a comprehensive teaching cookbook, The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School.

The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School includes 100 delicious recipes

In addition to the techniques, The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School includes 100 delicious recipes carefully chosen by Cayne and her expert staff with food inspired by global cuisine and a modern sensibility of how we like to eat today.

Each of the book’s nine chapters revolves around a key lesson taught through a collection of recipes to ensure that readers are not simply memorizing a canon of tried-and-true instructions; they are learning how to cook for a lifetime.

THE HAVEN’S KITCHEN COOKING SCHOOL: Recipes and Inspiration to Build a Lifetime of Confidence in the Kitchen.
