More About the Author

Carolyn Humphries was born and brought up in Somerset. Her grandmother was a professional cook and taught her all her skills. She produced her first Sunday lunch at the age of nine! She always aspired to become a cookery editor and writer and, after training as a journalist and a stint as a restaurant chef, became a cookery writer and then Deputy Cookery Editor on Woman magazine in the mid 1970s. Since then she has written for numerous magazines, been a consultant on many books and is the author of over 60 of her own - mostly cookery and health-related ones but also Really Simple English Grammar (recommended by John Clare in the Daily Telegraph), Modern Wedding Etiquette and Paint Your Life a Brighter Shade of Green (she feels really strongly about the environment). With a passion for good food, she cares deeply about what we eat and where it comes from. She is dedicated to promoting healthy eating, encouraging everyone to buy British, local produce, when possible, and also suports Fairtrade.

Format: Paperback
Excellent book, and I love to cook! Recipes are not for fast food but just good honest favourites. We live in an incredibly rural middle of no where and our Thai banquet last night was fabulous without the preciousness of a regular 'themed' recipe book. This book has definitely a place on my kitchen book shelf!

This book is FANTASTIC! An array of delicious meals, covering every eventuality, able to be prepared in next to no time. The veggie options are extremely tasty and the whole book is packed full of nutritional goodness. I own many of Carolyn's books and they have never let me down. I always find it a huge help to have them in the kitchen. Thanks Carolyn, keep up the good work!

I've made a lot of the dishes from the chinese and thai sections of the book, and they were all quick, easy, and tasted so much better than anything I've had from a take away restaurant - especially the sweet and sour pork. There are some delicious veggie recipes as well. Thank you for a wonderful book!

A must have if you need to produce those "takeaway "flavours at home. The instructions are easy to follow but one negative - there are not enough pictures of the finished article.
