We all know people who say they can’t cook. But when Joanne Weir explored why people believe this, the answer surprised her: "I wanted to get people back in the kitchen, and people said the thing they lacked was confidence — and that was shocking to me." As the host of the TV series Joanne Weir’s Cooking Confidence she teaches basic techniques to try and make her students feel comfortable in the kitchen. And now the show has a companion book, also titled Joanne Weir’s Cooking Confidence. As she explains, "If we give them just these little instructions and they try one recipe and they have success with that recipe they’ll try other recipes and, again and again."
Watch the video above to hear more from Weir about the book, as well as her confidence tips! And pick up the book, Joanne Weir’s Cooking Confidence: Dinner Made Simple.
