What do you want to eat right here, right now? What we cook and eat is as much dictated by our moods as what we wear and what we do so Jo Pratt has written an ingenious book that asks you how you feel before suggesting what sort of food you might fancy. Are you feeling lazy? Then the chapter of convenient, super-quick and easy recipes will hit the spot. Or is romance in the air? Here are heavenly recipes for every romantic occasion from the first date to the bedroom . . . How about extravagant? Jos menu suggestions will dazzle your guests and satisfy the exhibitionist in you. There are also chapters for naughty, indulgent moods and purer, healthier ones guaranteeing the right food at the right time and making sure you always get a little of what you fancy . . .
Jo Pratt is a Mum, wife, food stylist and author of four books. She is also a regular contributor to magazines and often appears on TV. Jo was named one of Waterstone's 'writers of the future' in 2008 to celebrate their 25th anniversary.
Studying Home Economics at John Moore's University in Liverpool was where it all started. After graduating (1995) she has been lucky enough to work with big name chefs such as Gary Rhodes, Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and John Torode on everything from live cookery demonstrations to TV programmes.
Jo's cooking style has come from working with those big chefs to create the most delicious food - and translating those ideas into recipes for the everyday kitchen. She branched out and tried some of her own ideas, which have lead to writing her own books, features and appearing on TV shows in front of camera, rather than behind the scenes!
Jo grew up near Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire and now lives in London with her husband Phil and two young children Oliver and Rosa (Jo's harshest food critics).
