It’s no surprise that Secret is as much a joy to curl up with as it is to cook from; you’ll be reminded of Wilson’s endearing prose every time you peel a carrot or reach for a metal spider." Eater - Bettina Makalintal The only vegetables book you'll ever need reveals hundreds of ways to cook nearly every vegetable under the sun.I was tired and a bit overworked, and that’s when it happened: the lid fell off the jar at the wrong moment, and all was lost. Or was it? For a long, despondent minute, I considered the disaster before me. In my best Le Creuset pan on the top of the oven were the sausages I was turning into a pasta sauce for dinner, and about 10 times the amount of chilli flakes I’d intended to add. Oh no! Thoughts of takeaway pizza floated into my mind. But I hated to waste both the sausages and my efforts up to this point, so I decided to plough on regardless. Some like it hot, and we two are among them. How bad could it be, really? Writing in The Financial Times, Wendell Steavenson described Wilson's 2019 book The Way We Eat Now as "clear and vital reading...an authoritative and brilliantly compelling description of the economic, political and emotional issues around our food."

Alongside thoughts on how to cook when you’re alone, with children, or just plain tired, Bee offers 140 recipes including: Wilson is a distinguished foodwriter whose earlier titles (which include First Bite, Consider the Fork, and How We Eat Now) along with her journalism here and in the States, bear witness to what I consider her particular genius for matching intellectual rigour with emotional openness — on top of which she writes like a dream. Hers is always an engaging voice, but The Secret of Cooking is a more intimate articulation, at once confiding, comforting, curious and celebratory. I called this Wilson’s first recipe book, but it is really a deeply thoughtful and elegantly conversational enquiry into the very nature of cooking, out of which the recipes seem to flow organically, the one leading on to another, giving you the time and the structure to develop your own sense, your own repertoire, and a way of being in the kitchen that actually suits you.
It’s not often that a genuinely game-changing cook book comes out, but this accomplished, approachable and helpful book - its writing as nourishing as the recipes - is most definitely it.

Bee Wilson is a dreamy writer. Photographer Matt Russell, whose stunning, beautifully lit shots appear throughout the book, is her equal. “The Secret of Cooking” will build on what you already know in the kitchen, help you refine how you think about food, and very likely take your kitchen confidence — and the pleasure you get from cooking — to new heights. Now for the salad. You need two medium-sized saucepans. Boil the kettle. Put the potatoes into one of the saucepans, add boiling water and a teaspoon of salt and boil for 10-15 minutes, or until tender. Drain in a sieve or a colander. Meanwhile, boil the kettle again. In the second pan, boil the green beans with a pinch of salt. They may take 4 minutes or they may take 8. It hugely depends on how fine they are. You want them properly tender, not squeaky (or at least, that’s how I like them). When they are done, remove them from the pan with a spider strainer or slotted spoon and put them into a big salad bowl. Add the eggs to the pan and boil for 8-9 minutes until hard boiled but still with a tiny bit of squidge in the yolk. Plunge into cold water and peel.The Secret of Cooking is just magnificent.
