Book Synopsis

A new cookbook for beginners and curious cooks by Emmy Award-winning talk show host and journalist Tamron Hall and her good friend, award-winning chef Lish Steiling.

When Tamron Hall and Lish Steiling first met while working at the Today show, they never imagined that their friendship would lead to endless kitchen adventures filled with laughs, learning, and even tears of pure joy. In A Confident Cook, they share that same empowerment and excitement with those who are just beginning to cook.

Learn how to select the tools you need (and skip the ones you don't!), how to stock your pantry, and how to cook for one, two, or a whole group. This book is packed with scrumptious recipes, including Baked French Toast with Sparkling Berries, Crispy Fried Chicken, Harissa Roasted Carrots with Queso Fresco, and Chai-Spiced Pudding, as well as cocktails and mocktails like the delicious "Not Tonight, Satan." Throughout, Lish and Tamron chat, teach, learn, and inspire you to keep it going in the kitchen!

--Carla Hall

"A Confident Cook is what happens when two genuine pros collaborate--in this case, a seasoned chef and an acclaimed host/interviewer. Together, Tamron and Lish get at the very heart and soul of cooking, why it matters, how it connects us, and how truly satisfying it can be when done with patience and love. Theirs is a friendship worth celebrating!"
--Gail Simmons

"A Confident Cook is the perfect title for this book. It will give you the skills and tips you've always wanted and will make you feel great in the kitchen. It is amazing to see a professional like Lish teach her friend Tamron the ins and outs of cooking. Lish makes everything look so easy due to her vast background, and has an extremely wide range of what she can cook. You will use this book day in and day out as your reference bible for things we all want to master--the perfectly cooked eggs, the crispiest roast chicken, the ultimate potatoes, the simplest desserts that will make you look like a pro. Brava, Tamron and Lish."
--Missy Robbins

"Tamron and Lish's cookbook proves that food has the power to connect people and they invite you along to share in that gift. This book has everything--how to build your pantry, how to decide which gadgets you really do need, how to cook basics like eggs and bacon perfectly, and how to make risotto as well as delicious recipes like grilled cheese and crispy fried chicken. You can feel the love that Tamron and Lish have for their family and friends by the care and details they put into these recipes, and the best part is that they want to share it with us, too!"
--Kristen Kish
