It would be easy to scream ” Foodies! Attention please!” but seriously – this special book of cooking is brilliant for all food “lovers” and culinary excellence is NOT required (hence why I am so excited about it!)
Jess Daniel has a great whirlwind of a story. Two years ago, prompted by friend stating she would “pay” just to have Jess’ delicious and healthy homemade meals for dinner, she found herself offering just that. Just one month on, her Auckland based “underground kitchen” was cranking via a Facebook page. Jess would post her weekly menu and her rapidly growing hungry audience would place their preferred order. A commercial kitchen, delivery service, multiple pick up points and even frozen meals a burgeoning catering business and now gorgeous cook book have since followed.
The book itself is separated into seasons and the foods available (great for us down under people!) Recipes are based on her most popular offerings tried and tested on her customers and I can vouch that they are achievable for the enthusiastic but perhaps not so skilled kitchen users.
