Anyone of any age who has never cooked, but suddenly has to, would be grateful for this book. -- The Daily Telegraph
From the Author
Just to give you an idea of the kind of recipes there are in the book - there are really, really easy recipes for people who've never cooked before like Easiest Ever Pasta Sauce and Best Ever Cheese on Toast. as well as for more experienced cooks (Vegetarian Samosa Pie). There are recipes for the weight conscious (Chinese steamed salmon with ginger, garlic and soy) and for the sweet-toothed (warm chocolate chip cookies)
There's a step by step Christmas dinner, the low down on how to do a barbecue and how to cook a seductive meal for two (peppered steak with red wine sauce and iced pavlovas with fresh orange and passion fruit sauce).
There are recipes for when you're (very) hard up (chunky potato and garlic soup) and for when you feel like showing off and splashing out (truffled mushroom risotto and lemon vodka sorbet).
There's comfort food (mashed potato, jelly and ice cream - not all together, obviously), food for late nights (loco moco) and for the morning after (banana, yoghurt and honey roughie). And some pretty mean cocktails too . . .
