Two Delicious New Cookery-themed Books Released

February 2018

First up is "Mr Hot Pot". Mr Hot Pot is a very special cooking pot, who can make any dish you like in just a single pot! One cold day, he finds himself very busy making many different warming one-pot dishes, like winter stew, sumo stew, and curry. All his customers bring their own cooking pots and place orders with him. Then his final customer of the day arrives, and asks for Neapolitan pasta – a dish made with a frying pan! Whatever will Mr Hot Pot do? The book ends with a recipe for a one-pot Neapolitan pasta, as cooked by Mr Hot Pot.
Next up is "An Introduction to Cooking". This book stars Coppe, a little girl convinced she’ll never be able to cook, and her cat Osaji. The book starts with the most basic of skills – boiling water to make tea – then moves on to incrementally more difficult tasks, such as boiling an egg and making strawberry jam. There is a new recipe for each month, so over the course of a year, Coppe and her cat are able to master many different recipes. After a year, without even noticing, Coppe and Osaji are good enough in the kitchen to make food for a party!
