Recipes to Elevate your Home Cooking


James Beard Award-winning chef Naomi Pomeroy’s hotly anticipated debut cookbook features nearly 140 recipes outlining the fundamentals of cooking to help home cooks elevate their kitchen abilities and produce show-stopping meals. 


Naomi Pomeroy learned her trade by reading cookbooks and cooking professionally for more than 20 years.  She knows intuitively what makes a recipe work, what a dish needs to be taken to the next level, and how to distill detailed culinary information.  In this inspiring and beautifully photographed guide, she channels Julia Child’s classical aesthetic and ambition to teach the world her cooking secrets with her own unique style.  By pairing back complex dishes to the building block methods used to create them, she reveals the simple tweaks chefs use to get professional results and gives readers the confidence and know-how to become better cooks.
