Shelley LeRoux had seen people struggle in mastering simple cooking techniques. As a significant way to address such concern, the author decides to write and publish a book “The Secret Ingredient or How to Cook a Perfect 3-Minute Egg in Twenty Minutes” (published by Trafford Publishing), which is a collection of amusing anecdotes and favorite recipes gathered over a lifetime of learning and experiences.

In her collection of recipes and stories spanning more than 85 years, LeRoux shares not only entertaining anecdotes about her life, but also simple recipes that tantalize the palate and celebrate flavors from around the world. She provides a delicious recipe for every palate—all while amusing with stories about unsuccessful dinner parties, yacht club sailboat races, the Pygmies and vintage airplanes.

The author believes that the anecdotes and recipes included in “The Secret Ingredient” will encourage both novice and experienced cooks to explore international flavors right in their very own kitchens.

By reading the book, LeRoux hopes that readers will have a full tummy and good laugh.

An excerpt from the book:
She had one more question to ask me, “What do you add?” My response was, “It’s what I leave out that makes them so good.
