The Ultimate Giveaway That Will Build Your Confidence In the Kitchen

Enter to win a copy of "The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School" plus a Williams-Sonoma stainless steel tool-set!


Artisan Books partnered with me to support an exciting new cookbook!

This is it, the year I finally learn how to cook. Seriously though, this is a real goal of mine.  I’ve always been a pro at prepackaged meals and using the microwave, but this year I really want to up my cooking game.  We are about halfway through the year and to be honest this skill has taken a back seat to life.  Fortunately, I discovered a new cook book that has been changing the way I look at cooking.

Published by Artisan Books on April 4, 2017, “The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School” is the must have manual for ‘future’ chefs, like myself. 😉  In this, amazing cookbook author, Alison Cayne takes the essential skills gleaned from her popular cooking school classes at Haven’s Kitchen into her first comprehensive teaching cookbook, The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School.

The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School includes 100 delicious recipes carefully chosen by Cayne and her expert staff with food inspired by global cuisine and a modern sensibility of how we like to eat today.

Each of the book’s nine chapters revolves around a key lesson taught through a collection of recipes to ensure that readers are not simply memorizing a canon of tried-and-true instructions; they are learning how to cook for a lifetime. You can read the Introduction* to The Haven’s Kitchen Cooking School.
