More About the Author

Annette Yates was born in South Wales and grew up in the Brecon Beacons. She is married and has two grown-up daughters. After many years living in and around London, Annette now lives near Abergavenny in Monmouthshire, Wales. These days, she spends much of her time designing and making silver jewellery (see www.facebook.com/annetteyatesjewellery).

Annette loves cooking and creating new recipes. In particular, she enjoys cooking and eating out of doors. Though living in Wales often makes this a difficult pastime, Annette has a clay oven in her garden (for days when she is sure the weather is going to stay fine) and a gas barbecue (for cooking between showers of rain!). In summer, she enjoys spending long weekends with her husband in their camper (when Annette likes to cook all-in-one-dish meals in her electric wok). Her family and friends are usually the best (and most honest) critics of her culinary creations!

Annette's career as a cookery writer and home economist has been varied. As well as being the author of more than sixty cookbooks she has:

been a food consultant to several major food and equipment companies,
written cookery and recipe features for many consumer magazines,
developed recipes for dozens of leaflets, features and books,
organised and given cookery demonstrations,
styled food for photographs,
run microwave cookery classes,
developed and run a consumer advice line on food and cooking,
edited education publications.

Her books have attracted much praise including, above all, the doyenne of British cookery Marguerite Patten, O.B.E. who said of Fresh & Fast: Meals From the Microwave 'It is an excellent book... not surprising in view of the outstanding ability of both Annette Yates and Norma Miller'.

I've recently bought a microwave for the first time, having only used them in the past to re-heat food at work. It was a good job I did buy a microwave because our cooker went on the blink, and now we're having to cook ~everything~ in the mike. We're vegetarian so I bought a few veggie microwave cookbooks which have been very useful (especially the Sarah Brown one, as it explains the principles behind microwave cooking) but this is the book I refer to most. It makes it easy to adapt recipes I already use, or to find out the times for things like side dishes, eggs, potatoes, etc that aren't really recipes as such. The guide to different wattages is useful too. I would recommend to anyone who would like to use their own recipes and isn't used to cooking in a microwave.

This is not a recipe book, so if that's what you're looking for, this isn't for you.

It's an alphabetical index of foods, with details of times required for cooking, heating, and defrosting - and giving sample weights of foods alongside the timings.

It's exactly what I needed, and the alphabetical method of listing the foods makes it a quick and handy reference book to keep in the kitchen.

Also, it's such a cheap book that I'm happy to keep it in the kitchen where it's likely to end up splashed with coffee and all sorts (not something I do with my "posh" cookbooks!!)

This book replaces one by a different author that I bought years ago when microwave ovens were much less powerful than today. This one is excellent; it covers a range of powers and different conditions for anything you care to cook (at any rate for plain cooking!). It doesn't give recipes, but it does tell you how to cook what you have planned. It looks like being the most used book in the kitchen

I am not a great microwave user but this little book is great to keep next to your oven as it lists in alphabetical order produce and how long and how to cook it .

Being a newcomer to microwave cooking, I needed a concise but comprehensive guide. This is that guide. Virtually every food is listed in alpha order, complete with precise cooking instructions and, where relevant, thawing instructions. Cooking times are given for each power rating. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get the most out of their microwave.

Format: Paperback
I have never used a microwave before and the instuctions that came with my new one were basic in the extreme. It is in a caravan and I dont go on holiday to prepare cordon bleu meals, so a recipe-book is not what I need. This paper-back book fits the bill perfectly -small, lightweight to live in the 'van and gives just the information I need to cook whatever food-stuffs leap off the supermarket-, grocer-, farmers market shelves at us. It takes the mystery out of micro-waving. All I need now is a long ,hot Summer.

We bought a combination microwave and wanted to know more about cooking times. We found this book helpful, and we are beginning to enjoy the benefits.

Forget what the food packaging says trust your instinct and use this little gem.
I keep it next to my MW and use it all the time just to check and usually add a
bit more time as this book is like a personal coach. No frills, just text, but very
important and so useful. I wouldn't use my MW without it.
