Book Details

After working at Jamie Oliver’s ‘Fifteen’ restaurant in London for seventeen years, Danny McCubbin bought a house for one euro in the small Sicilian town of Mussomeli and started a community kitchen. The Good Kitchen has grown to not only help feed a village, but to inspire other community kitchens across the globe.Danny shares the pivotal moments of his journey, the life lessons, the human connections, and the food and recipes behind it all since opening the Kitchen’s doors in July, 2021. Simplicity is at the heart of every meal, cooking with vegetarian surplus food of all kinds – proving that delicious meals can be prepared from the most inexpensive ingredients. Danny provides recipes that stay true to the rich Sicilian food tradition whilst also being adaptable according to the ingredients available, and teaches home cooks as well as aspiring community chefs how to upscale simple recipes to provide meals for many people. He also shares various hints and tips on preserving and reducing food waste, which comes as second nature to most Sicilians.
