Anyone saddened by Berry's departure from The Great British Baking Show can still enjoy her many cookbooks, including this new collection of everyday favorites. Simple, mostly savory recipes such as turkey and lemon stir fry, scallops with spicy cashew sauce, spinach gnocchi with tomato sauce, and fragrant chicken curry will have novice cooks exploring an array of global flavors. Each recipe includes calorie counts and clear step-by-step instructions. Essential techniques, such as how to scramble eggs, appear in an introductory chapter. Unlike many celebrity chef cookbooks, this practical title steers clear of memoir and autobiography.
VERDICT A straightforward collection from a beloved chef and TV host.
