Ambrose Heath was a journalist and food writer who wrote for newspapers including The Times, before becoming the food writer for The Morning Post. From 1933, when he published four cookery books, Heath wrote and translated more than one hundred works on food, such as Good Food on the Aga and The Good Cook in Wartime. He was best known for a translation: Madame Prunier's Fish Cookery Book (1938).
What's Wrong With The Cooking breaks down issues that cooks might face and how to fix them. It includes a chapter on sauces and how to bring them back from lack of flavour, lumpiness, thinness as well as understanding the different cuts of meat and how to cook them.
