Irene M BS: Cooking for one (47) RE: BS: Cooking for one 24 Oct 10

You went to town on this one. Thank you.
The person in question is 79, has had a heart attack, is used to home cooking and has a kitchen that is so stuffed with things that there is no room for scales. Hence sticking to cup measures. I have pointed out the benfits of batch cooking, but he lacks motivation and doesn't really know where to start. This is why I want to find him a book that doesn't assume knowledge of technique and isn't aimed at a large family.
It is frustrating that I had to leave so soon and was unable to give a few basic lessons. I wrote out some simple soup recipes including leek and potato. He said "What's a leek?". Now I am worried that he wont know that the leek will need de-gritting!
I know I am at the end of a phone, but I am 3,500 miles and 5 hours away.
