The Haven's Kitchen Cooking School

Recipes and inspiration to build a lifetime of confidence in the kitchen.

Considered the must-have manual for every aspiring home cook, The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School by Alison Cayne doesn't just deliver impressive recipes, it covers nine master classes in the fundamentals of cooking: purposeful grains and beans, the mise en place of fritters, in-season vegetables, layering soups, perfectly-timed eggs, salad compositions, the art of temperature for meat and fish, balanced sauces, and the playfulness of desserts.

Each section starts with a teaching recipe before diving into more complex ones, but all recipes are made easy with Cayne's step-by-step instructions. Packed with basic how-to tips, this is the cookbook that will make you love cooking. As M.F.K. Fisher says in the introduction, "Cooking from scratch isn't simply a nod to a simpler past. It is increasingly imperative for our well-being, our relationships, our society, and indeed, our planet."

Enjoy these recipes for a simple braised cabbage, a cheese soufflé you can master, and the sole recipe that inspired Julia Child to become a cook at age 40.
