Meet Celebrity Chef Kim McCosker at Pine Rivers Show
International bestselling author and TV presenter, Kim McCosker, founder and author of ‘4 Ingredients’, will be sharing her no fuss cooking know-how at the 2018 Pine Rivers Show.
With sales nearing 8.75 million copies across her thirty-two book titles, Kim’s ‘4 Ingredients’ cookbooks have been making life in the kitchen easy worldwide for over ten years.
“Across all my platforms I have almost over a million followers, and if you take the time to talk to them, they’ll tell you that they struggle getting dinners on the table because they’re really busy, and that’s where ‘4 Ingredients’ comes in,” explains Kim.
“At the end of a really busy day people just appreciate simple, and you will be amazed at what you can make with so few ingredients that is good, wholesome, delicious, and nutritious.”
Appearing twice daily on the first and second day of the Show, Kim will be sharing recipes from one of her latest books, ‘4 Ingredients The Easiest ONE POT Cookbook Ever’ which features more than 70 recipes requiring just four or fewer ingredients and one pot to cook in.
Released in June and available exclusively at IGA Queensland and Northern NSW supermarkets, Kim spent three solid weeks visiting IGA stores across Queensland hosting in-store cooking and taste-testing demonstrations.
“I think one of my real strengths, and what separates me from a lot of my competitors, is that I am still that touring author,” says Kim. “I am still the author that is in the aisles of the supermarket, or on the stages at the expos, or in the bookstore on a weekend, because I use that as real, qualitative market analysis.
“Every day I garner recipe ideas from busy people. I’ll ask them, ‘What would help you in the kitchen? What’s stopping you from cooking in the kitchen? What would make life easier for you in the kitchen?’ And that is a real grassroots understanding that I get by touring, and I’ll treat my time at the Pine Rivers Show the same way.”
Kim’s four one-hour cooking and taste-testing demonstrations will feature four simple and easy recipes from the ‘One Pot’ book.
“Come along and bring your appetites, because everything I make I will hand out,” says Kim. “The recipes are quick, they’re easy, and we can get it all in and out of a pot in literally five to ten minutes, and then onto plates and handed out to as many people as we possibly can.
“I guarantee you that something will resonate with you that you can take home and incorporate into your weekly repertoire, because the one pot recipes are easy on multiple levels. Its familiar ingredients, its one pot cooking so you’re minimising the washing up, its simple recipes, and they’re flavourful.
Kim will also pre-make her famous Three Ingredient Fruit Cake for Show patrons to sample.
“For anyone going to the Show who has ever eaten a fruit cake, made a fruit cake or will make a Christmas cake this year, they must come and try my Three Ingredient Fruit Cake,” enthuses Kim. “It’s got no added sugar, no eggs, no butter, no cream, and everyone rolls their eyes and says, ‘What could this possible taste like?’ and then once they taste it, they go, ‘Oh my gosh, this is amazing!’”
Copies of ‘4 Ingredients The Easiest One Pot Cookbook Ever’ will be available for purchase at the demonstrations, as well as Kim’s latest book ‘4 Ingredients MORE Gluten Free Lactose Free’ and her go-to entertainer ‘4 Ingredients Celebrations’.
“My new gluten-free, lactose-free cookbook was only released in July, so it won’t have been seen by too many people,” explains Kim. “And ‘4 Ingredients Celebrations’ which is usually valued at $34.99, will be available for just $20.00 at the Pine Rivers Show.”
