Out cook, Ruby Tandoh who appeared in The Great British Bake-Off in 2013 is back with a wonderful new cookbook!

A SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR

'Practical, straight-talking, endlessly inspirational - this is Ruby at her best.' Nigel Slater


'I'd recommend it for everyone from novice cooks looking for a helping hand in the kitchen, to keen cookbook buyers looking for new inspiration'
Rukmini Iyer, author of The Roasting Tin


'One of the best, most interesting cookbooks I've seen in a long time.
Ravneet Gill, author of The Pastry Chef's Guide and judge on Junior Bake Off


'
A warm invitation to relax into and enjoy the experience of cooking and eating.'
Nigella Lawson


'Beautiful, practical and a total game-changer'
Ella Risbridger, author of Midnight Chicken


Ruby Tandoh wants us all to cook, and this is her cookbook for all of us - the real home cooks, juggling babies or long commutes, who might have limited resources and limited time. From last-minute inspiration to delicious meals for one, easy one-pot dinners to no-chop recipes for when life keeps your hands full, Ruby brings us 100 delicious, affordable and achievable recipes, including salted malted magic ice cream, one-tin smashed potatoes with lemony sardines and pesto and an easy dinner of plantain, black beans and eden rice.

This is a new kind of cookbook for our times: an accessible, inclusive and inspirational addition to any and every kitchen. You don't have to be an aspiring chef for your food to be delectable or for cooking to be a delight. Cook as you are.

"Great recipes, of course, but also a wealth of modern kitchen wisdom. Practical, straight-talking, endlessly inspirational - this is Ruby at her best."
Nigel Slater

"Cook As You Are is not simply a recipe book, but a warm invitation to relax into and enjoy the experience of cooking and eating. Ruby Tandoh offers understanding, encouragement, and completely glorious food."
Nigella Lawson

"I genuinely think Cook As You Are is one of the best, most interesting cookbooks I've seen in a long time. I couldn't put it down. I love the illustrations, the notes about realistic seasonality and that Ruby credits properly and gives a proper platform to cuisines that don't always get a lot of exposure."
Ravneet Gill

"Ruby Tandoh is another food writer - like Nigel and Jamie - who wants to enable readers, though she doesn't just want to empower you to cook, she also wants you to value the kind of cook you are and the food you want to make ... a sane, generous and wise book."
Diana Henry, 'The 20 best cookbooks to buy this autumn' ― Telegraph

"A cookbook designed for real people: using up ingredients you can pick up on the way home, meals that give nourishment and comfort at the end of a tricky day and packed with insider ideas and ways to make your kitchen entirely your own; the most thoughtful of gifts"
Books for people who love food' ― Stylist

"I've lost track of the number of people who have told me that this was their favourite cookbook of the year. Tandoh has done something new: a cookbook that acknowledges that home cooking happens in the mess and exhaustion of everyday life. She writes with warmth and intelligence, and her recipes - 'Yorkshire puddings for every occasion', 'creamy mango and ginger pudding pots' - are the kind to lure you back into the kitchen even when you think you can't face it."
Bee Wilson ― Sunday Times Ireland
