Culinary Quickies ONLINE Cooking Course with Chef Mel

Culinary Quickies is a recipe book with a difference written by African Australian chef and entrepreneur, Mel Alafaci...

Known as the Queen of Culinary Bling, this sassy, smiley, happy chef will have you creating culinary masterpieces out of everyday ingredients in no time.

Chef Mel shares ALL her culinary secrets and shortcuts offering practical advice to get you feeling confident and to find your mojo in the kitchen again. Best of all she will make you extremely efficient and save you time and stress and heartache in the kitchen. This book is perfect for beginners, intermediate and advanced foodies. The advice, hints, and tips given are simple, hilarious, and effective.

Chef Mel asks all the questions that will challenge you to reconsider the way you cook to simplify and streamline the cooking process. You will become the foodie you have always wanted to be and start your culinary journey of living happily ever after.

We all feel like we need a makeover from time to time, especially with our frantic schedules…

Makeovers make us feel all shiny, new, and worthwhile again. I always say that recipes should be like your little black dress, or your favourite suit…new earrings + new handbag = new outfit. It’s the same for me with cooking. I rehash my favourite old-faithful recipes again and again…new spices + new accompaniments = new recipe. I’m sure, like me, you often feel that your cooking needs a makeover tooEasily done.

Food has a language all of its own, it can break down barriers and bring cultures together. I love to travel, it helps me to find wonderful new ideas on how to interpret and refresh basic ingredients. Yes, this is a cookbook with all of my favourite recipes BUT my recipes are written in a very different style than most recipes. Often if you try and cook from a recipe so many integral parts of the recipe are left out leaving you frustrated and failing. I will ALWAYS mention the important bits so that you can almost have me right by your side guiding you all the way. My recipes will train you to be able to handle other recipes in a more confident and successful way.

Together we will be unstoppable in the kitchen!
