Stephanie takes you into her kitchen as she explains more than 100 important techniques in straightforward language, discusses the kitchen tools she likes to use, and describes ingredients you might not know- How do I whisk eggs to soft peaks? What does it mean to 'make a well' in dry ingredients? Why should I roast spices? How do I prepare fresh chillies safely? What is 'resting meat' and why should I do it? How do I prepare a mango? What flavours work well together? What is fresh mozzarella? How do I say 'quinoa'?
