Nat’s What I Reckon has shepherded us through lockdowns, with the Sydney comedian’s recipe videos teaching Australia the importance of home cooking – and the value of not being so hard on yourselves, you champions.
But can old mate’s knife skills and positive attitude guide us after a year dominated by the pandemic? All signs point to yes, thanks to the imminent arrival of Nat’s very first cookbook/self-help scripture.
Un-cook Yourself: A Ratbag’s Rules For Life, from Penguin Books Australia, promises to condense Nat’s unique kitchen knowledge with some of his hard-earned wisdom.
Taking to Facebook, where he now commands more than 1.4 million followers, Nat said the 272-page tome combines recipes, comics, and reviews of things which may or may not be shit.
The book also promises to detail some of Nat’s life before viral superstardom.
Un-cook Yourself “amps up the flavour with some eye-watering stories from his early years before a sweary video about pasta sauce shot him to global fame,” according to the Penguin Books Australia site.
So, that’s all a little bit of alright.
The book is slated to hit shelves on December 1, just weeks before the Australia clicks the tongs for Christmas lunch.
