The Joy of Better Cooking

What does it mean to be a good cook? Is it intuition, time spent at your Nan's apron strings, muscle memory? And what happens if you tick none of the above? Alice Zaslavsky, bestselling author of In Praise of Veg, is here to tell you that if you like food, you are already a better cook than you think.

 

With this definitive veg-forward recipe collection centred on building extremely handy skills and know-how, you'll capture a sense of delight in the kitchen from day one. With her trademark pluck, Alice covers all the delicious bases, from Slapdash (aka really outstanding things simply thrown together), Autopilot (great go-tos for midweek wonders) through to Making the Most of It (gluts and leftover makeovers). Then it's time to Loosen Your Shoulders (for weekend pottering and entertaining), and let's not forget Seriously Good Sweeties (like, seriously good).

 

Whether you're already a whiz in the kitchen, you're a battler who finds cooking a bit meh or you're starting from 'which way do I hold the knife?', The Joy of Better Cooking is all the inspiration, hand-holding and cheerleading you need to get confident and bring joy into your cooking.

Nationwide Delivery

Shipping & Delivery

 

In order to make things simple and convenient, we have set our delivery pricing with our couriers based on a standard delivery box, with dimensions of 330mm L x 250mm W x 310mm H, and a maximum weight of 18kg.

 

To get an idea of how much that is, the delivery box fits up to 12 bottles of wine, one kitchen mixer, or a feather and down duvet inner. Your total delivery charge is automatically calculated in the checkout – simply enter your delivery region and let our system do the rest.

 

Your order is then sent out by our couriers and delivered right to your door. When orders contain alcohol, someone over the age of 18 must be present to sign for it – if you can’t be home at the time, we recommend that the order is sent to a workplace.

If no one aged 18 or over is present when delivery is attempted, a contact card will be left by the courier, and redelivery can be arranged with them.

 

While we are at the current traffic light stting please allow extra time for your delivery. Courier Post have implemented a contactless delivery service and are social distancing in thier warehouses meaning deliveries could take 5 working days. We apologise for an inconvienience.

 

Once payment is received, your orders will usually be with you in up to 5 working. You can track your order once it has been collected by Courier Post – an email with the tracking reference will be sent to you automatically. Please note that Courier Post do not collect from us on Saturday or Sunday, any orders placed during the weekend will be dispatched the following Monday.

 

Please note: We cannot accommodate requests for a specific delivery time; actual delivery times will be dependent on the courier's schedule.

 

While we do everything we can to get your order to you as quickly as possible, there may be occasions where orders may take longer to arrive – you can follow your order’s progress using the courier tracking reference.

FAQ's

Q: I’ve seen a product in store but can’t find it on your website. How can I order it?

 

If there's something you are after that isn't yet available here on our website, contact us and we'll see what we can do. If it’s something we have in stock and can send by courier, we will do our very best to make it available on our website.

 

Q: Why is there a minimum order quantity for some products?

 

Some of our products – such as beer and grocery items – can be bought individually in store, but we can only courier them in set quantities (such as boxes, cases or cartons). It is often quite a lot cheaper to buy in these quantities, which is why we show both the individual and bulk prices on the product pages. It’s always nice to know what you’re saving!
