Book Description

Don't bin it! With How to be an Everyday Kitchen Magician you will be astounded by what you can make from the most uninspiring food at the back of your fridge or cupboard. This book is so much more than a recipe book; in fact, it's about learning to cook without using recipes at all. It's about making the most of what you have, reducing your waste dramatically, and discovering how to create spontaneous, delicious dishes in minutes. It's filled with ingredients that most of us would throw away without so much as a second thought. For example . . .A cold leftover sausage, a crusty bit of cheddar, a bendy courgette and a few wrinkly mushrooms can become a sublime risotto in 20 minutes. Take a dried-out flour tortilla, half an onion, a squirt of tomato puree, a squidgy tomato and a scattering of dried herbs, combine with random bits of cooked veg and you've got a delicious pizza; in less time than it takes for delivery. Whether you're a non-cook or an aspiring professional, the recipes, techniques and way of thinking about cooking in these pages will change your culinary life forever. Your everyday bits, leftovers and rejects will become a treasure trove of delicious dishes rather than wasted cash.12 billion worth of food and drink is thrown away every year in the UK, adding up to hundreds of pounds per household.

5.0 out of 5 stars The cook book for non cooks 30 Jan. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a lifelong non-cook who never felt confident cooking, I saw Richard demonstrating at a show. Impressed with his casual but interesting approach to cooking, where pretty much anything goes, I bought his book. It's been great. You are encouraged to try things and make stuff up yourself with whatever happens to be in the house. Nothing is "wrong" there is nothing to measure yourself against and therefore there is no feeling of failure. It's just encouraging. Worth the purchase price for Richard's flat bread recipe alone, I've made loads.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspirational! 31 May 2012
By Wendy
Format:Paperback
Probably the best layed out recipe book I've seen. Loads of ideas on stuff you just have in the house. The recipes explain how they can be flexible if you have slightly different ingredients. Butternut squash cheesecake is lovely and the flatbread sooo easy!

4.0 out of 5 stars How not to waste food and money 7 Dec. 2012
By Veggie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like this book, but having said that I think it is intended more for less experience home keepers than myself.
I have been living thriftily for most of my married life and now in retirement.
It is a very useful book that tells what can be done to save food waste and usually the recipes are tastier than super market ready meals for a fraction of the cost.
I would recommend it to anybody struggling to make ends meet but who still likes their food.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some things you haven't seen before 20 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Even if you are into being frugal-icious and not wasting a scrap, there's a good range of novel ways to make leftovers into a delicious snack or meal.
I liked the conversational style, straightforward advice about how long to keep things and how best to store them, and the creative meal making ideas. It really is a good way of seeing the potential in turning a spoonful or two of leftovers into the main event for the next meal. Save money while reducing waste, what's not to like?
