When two Australian mothers wrote a cookbook to save themselves time and money, and get them OUT of the kitchen, they had no idea that it would make them international bestsellers.
Cookbook authors Kim McCosker and Rachael Bermingham will be at the Toms River branch on June 23 to discuss and share samples from their cookbook, "4 INGREDIENTS."
Outselling Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, and Gordon Ramsey "4 INGREDIENTS" has sold over two million copies and consistently sits near the top of the bestsellers lists in both Australia and the UK.
McCosker and Bermingham believe their cookbook has been such a huge success (even outselling J.K. Rowlings' Harry Potter series in 2008) because people can relate to the "4 INGREDIENTS" concept. It helps people get great food on the table fast, without compromising on taste and it uses ingredients that are already found in most kitchen cabinets or refrigerators.
McCosker and Bermingham are the first to admit that they are not professional chefs but everyday people, career women, mothers, and wives, who try to be the best they can be for the people they love in their lives. They are busy people who want simple solutions in the kitchen.
Whether you are a parent who is always running around, on a tight budget, or simply don't have time to shop for groceries, "4 INGREDIENTS" is the book for you. (Courtesy OC Library)
