Globe and Mail columnist Lucy Waverman invites us into her kitchen to learn the secrets to being a great cook.

Lucy Waverman is one of the best-known food writers in the country. Her popular, long-running column in the Saturday Globe and Mail and her contributions to Food & Drink magazine have gained her a huge, faithful audience who rely on her recipes because they are foolproof. Lucy spent many years running a highly successful cooking school, giving her an innate understanding of people's needs in the kitchen. Based on the questions her Globe readers ask, she started to realize that there was an entire generation (or two) of food-savvy people out there who hadn't learned to cook the same way their mothers had. For whatever reason, some of us have missed out on learning the basics of great cooking - details that can turn a meal into something memorable.

We're not talking about the secret to an impressive soufflé or lobster bisque - save that for later. But everyone should know how to fold in an egg white, stir a risotto, and roast the perfect chicken, and Lucy's Kitchen will show you how. Accented by renowned food photographer Rob Fiocca's beautiful full-colour imagery throughout, this is the book we've all been waiting for.

In the casual yet elegant style she's known for, Lucy applies her incredible teaching skills to showing us how easy it is to create fantastic meals, whether they be for a simple evening for two or a night of entertaining a crowd. Seamlessly woven into the more than 250 impossible-to-resist recipes are the tips, techniques and information on ingredients you need to feel confident whipping up such wonders as Smoked Salmon Nori Roll, Lemon-Scented Roasted Lamb, Smashed Red Potatoes with Garlic Chips or a Chocolate Mousse with Saffron Foam.

In Lucy's Kitchen you will blossom into the fabulous cook you always knew you could be.
