Cook As You Are Reviews

Great recipes, of course, but also a wealth of modern kitchen wisdom. Practical, straight-talking, endlessly inspirational - this is Ruby at her best. -- Nigel Slater
Cook As You Are is not simply a recipe book, but a warm invitation to relax into and enjoy the experience of cooking and eating. Ruby Tandoh offers understanding, encouragement, and completely glorious food. -- Nigella Lawson
I genuinely think Cook As You Are is one of the best, most interesting cookbooks I've seen in a long time. I couldn't put it down. I love the illustrations, the notes about realistic seasonality and that Ruby credits properly and gives a proper platform to cuisines that don't always get a lot of exposure. -- Ravneet Gill
Ruby Tandoh is another food writer - like Nigel and Jamie - who wants to enable readers, though she doesn't just want to empower you to cook, she also wants you to value the kind of cook you are and the food you want to make ... a sane, generous and wise book. -- Diana Henry * Telegraph *
Beautiful, practical and a total game-changer -- Ella Risbridger, author of Midnight Chicken
Full of accessible, affordable and inspiring recipes - I'd recommend it for everyone from novice cooks looking for a helping hand in the kitchen, to keen cookbook buyers looking for new inspiration -- Rukmini Iyer, author of The Roasting Tin
Ruby Tandoh once again shows us what eating can be instead of what it is - something usually defined by the white gaze using white hands to signpost for us what is trendy, culturally relevant and acceptable. As a gifted guide through the journey of her own adventures as a cook, Tandoh makes her identity and experience a central focus point for what she is sharing here - a gorgeous selection of recipes that have risen from her lived experience of being of and in the world as a human consuming her culture and experience - something we all do every day but less deftly explain. -- Zoe Adjonyoh, author of Zoe's Ghana Kitchen
A beautiful cookbook full of good sense and delicious ideas ... without question, this will be loved as a gift this Christmas -- Dan Lepard, author of Short and Sweet
Ruby Tandoh has continued to carve out a necessary and relatable space within the world of British food journalism ... [Cook As You Are] offers up recipes in digestible chunks for any type of cook no matter your experience or lifestyle... in many ways [Ruby] is completely shifting what a cookbook can be. -- Niellah Arboine * gal-dem *
Ruby Tandoh has been a breath of fresh air to the food industry ... I wholeheartedly hope that Cook As You Are signifies the future of cookbooks: a future where everyone feels welcome and is encouraged to give cooking a go, where we are invited to enjoy each step of the process, and where the community involved in creating a delicious recipe is acknowledged and credited. Ruby Tandoh truly is a trailblazer in many ways. I for one cannot wait to see what she does next. -- CP Hunter * The Arts Desk *
