Product Description


Louise Pickford comes up trumps with this attractively presented collection of tasty treats - all made fast and easy, no worry involved. As Louise says in her introduction, cooking should be fun not a chore. And when sharing a meal with friends it is more enjoyable to be with them than slaving away in a hot kitchen. From simple dips and salads for starters to vegetarian curry and garlic-roasted poussins to mouth-watering chocolate mousses, all made in less than half an hour, the recipes are scrumptiously described and gloriously illustrated by food photographer Peter Cassidy. Louise covers the gamut of gastronomic tastes - meat, fish, dairy and vegetarian, ending on every sugar-lover's dream - mouthwatering desserts. Certainly several notches above the current plethora of cookery books on fast food, the recipes here being more sophisticated and excitingly different, taking inspiration from Louise's travels around the world. - Lucy Watson

Format: Hardcover
I've tried around half of the recipes in this book so far and they are all fabulous. I'm a very impatient cook and not that great at it either, but these recipes are so easy and taste delicious. Highly recommeded for those who have busy lives and need to knock up something in 20 minutes after a busy day.

HASH(0x8dbe0444) out of 5 stars Deceivingly not so simple 30 Jun. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
While the cookbook has very pretty photographs and the food looks very appetizing, the recipes have more steps than they should for something titles "fast". Also, the ingredients needed for many of the recipes are not necessarily available in a regular grocery store. Forgive me for not rushing off to a specialty store after work to buy ingredients for my supposedly "fast" dinner.

HASH(0x8e0e4474) out of 5 stars Fantastic Food! But not so fast........ 6 Feb. 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The recipes in this book are spectacular! Everything we have tried has tasted wonderful and we've made more than once! It is not the kind of book you just grab off the shelf and whip something up ... some of the ingredients require some planning. If you like delicious, high-end restaurant quality food with fresh ingredients, this is the book for you! Also - some recipes are very easily modified for those on the South Beach Diet. Makes losing weight a gourmet experience!
I'm buying more of her cookbooks because of this one!
