Cooking schools are teaching the wrong people! They're teaching people with the time and the money to enjoy cooking as a hobby. But how do the rest of us learn?

If you don't have the time, the money and the confidence to go to a cookery school then The 60 Second Chef will teach you everything you need to know. Fast.

Broken down into 3 easy-to-follow sections The 60 Second Chef teaches you the basics of nutrition, the essential cooking techniques and walks you through full recipes to try your new skills.

No jargon. No serious chefs in white jackets. No long, boring tutorials. Just the skills you need, at a price you can afford in the time you have to spare.
