Irena ChalmersAfter studying at the Cordon Bleu School of Cooking in Paris, Irena Chalmers established her own cooking school in Greensboro, North Carolina. She has appeared on numerous television programs and has given lectures and cooking demonstrations around the country. Chalmers has written more than eighty specialty cookbooks that are sold both here and abroad.

Irena Chalmers shows readers that anyone who can understand a few basic home cooking tricks can be a star in the kitchen.

THE CONFIDENT COOK demonstrates that there are in fact only four or five basic cooking methods and that with these methods you can vastly expand your recipe repertoire. A simple beef stew can be transformed into a hearty Mulligan or a fancy French beouf bourguignon.

Learn how to make a stress-free soufflé for the first time or fancy up a sirloin steak by stuffing it with mushrooms sautéed with ham and garlic. Chalmers shows you how to whip up a bountiful meal with whatever supplies you have available, empowering home cooks to expand their kitchen creativity and confidence.

With two hundred practical recipes and techniques illustrated by quaint and informative illustrations, THE CONFIDENT COOK will make you the savvy cook you’ve always wanted to be.
