About the Author

Lorraine trained at the leading Leiths School of Food and Wine before completing spells in some of the most renowned kitchens in the world, but, eager to work for herself and exercise her baking talents Lorraine couldn’t wait to start her own business, The Cupcake Bakehouse in London’s Covent Garden. Wide public attention beckoned after Baking Made Easy, her landmark BBC 2 TV series, introduced millions of viewers to her easy, impressive recipes. The book of the series went on to be a bestseller and was followed up by an even more popular book and series: Home Cooking Made Easy, making Lorraine the most successful debut cookery writer in Britain.

I've never been talented enough to pull off fancy, complicated meals and so I tend to make no effort altogether and stick to standard, boring dishes. However, the recipe's in 'Fast, Fresh and Easy Food' are fairly simple and don't take up too much time which is fantastic for dinner parties or even nights in when you fancy something a little more intricate than beans on toast! I love that the book is vibrant and packed with colourful pictures of the finished dishes as it gives me something to aspire to when I'm cooking.

All of the recipes I have cooked so far were imaginative, flavoursome and looked fantastic when presented on a plate - this is a definite thumbs up for me as food presentation is always something I have struggled with! Although I am a keen meat eater, I was particularly impressed with the vegetarian dishes that Lorraine has created. I usually don't feel satisfied unless I've consumed some meat with my dinners but Lorraine's recipes have altered this feeling entirely - I would highly recommend the Butternut & Sweet Potato Lasagne!

For me this book has become something of a culinary bible and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

This book is a nice addition to my cook books and the pictures are beautiful. I am a lazy and want to do things with minimal cooking so I like the way Lorrainne Pascale chooses her ingredients and recipes. The majority of the recipes don't take up too much time. The onion soup is almost good as the little bistros I use to eat in France. I say almost because if you are looking for restaurant quality food this is not the book for you. But if you want simple, healthy, tasty, dishes to impress your friends at dinner parties this is the book for you. Overall I think it is a good cook book but to be completely honest I prefer the more traditional recipes of "Home Cooking Made Easy."

This is an excellent book, has a wide range of recipes (vegetarian, meat, fish, desserts, breads & sweets). Has accessible ingredients which you can buy in most supermarkets, lovely photos of the recipes an easy to read and understand. This is a must buy book, loved her other books too but this is my favourite so far!

Just what I need - another cookery book. I have, like, gazillions. But having been completely won over by Ms Pascale on her tv shows, I decided it was time to actually invest in one of her cookbooks.

First of all, let me say that it is a lovely book, beautifully produced on glossy, heavyweight paper (unfortunately, some of the pages in my copy are creased but no matter).

Secondly, I would like to praise the exemplary way in which the recipes are laid out: clear, concise, excellent typography. Other cookbook publishers please take note and also, please see my review of Tessa Kiros's Greek cookbook which has the worst recipe typography I think I have ever seen. Food From Many Greek Kitchens

Thirdly, many of the recipes appeal to me and I think will appeal to lots of people. Plenty of modern stuff, several with chicken and fish, as well as some traditional dishes with a twist - something I particularly like to see.

So far, so good.

However, I do have a few buts about this book.

But #1: The photography is decidedly average with none of the verve and "make-me appeal" of the tv programme. Ms Pascale is ill-served by her publishers here; check out the Waitrose monthly food mag, Lorraine - that's the kind of "must-make-this" quality of photography you need - and deserve!

But #2: I haven't actually made any of the dishes yet - the book only arrived today! But looking at the length of time that is given to prepare some of these dishes, I would say the timings are unrealistic; it would take me the said 30 mins, or whatever, just to find all the various ingredients in the cupboard! NOW UPDATED, PLEASE SEE BELOW.

We love Lorraine Pascale in our house, her programmes are interesting and up to date and not too complicated like some chefs and the book is just the same. Everything is set out and explained really well and not too fancy or fussy, you could quite easily and happily cook everything in the book, it doesn't contain any overly fancy things, once again like some chefs who cook things that the average person wouldn't dream of or be able to cook,with ingredients that you'd never find only in specialist shops, usually you have to leaf through these books and find just a few things you could do, but Lorraine's recipes aren't like that at all. She makes everything look so simple and actually seems to really enjoy all that she cooks and uses ingredients that are easy to obtain, sometimes making welcome short cuts. We have all her books and find them all as interesting, my husband is the main cook in our house and he's cooked loads of her recipes and reckons she's the best cook book writer of them all. So this book has made a welcome addition to her others that we have and I'd have no hesitation in recommending it to all, whether you're an experienced cook or a reluctant one (like me) or just starting out. And the price is reasonable too, and makes a lovely present for someone or to treat yourself. As usual the quick delivery from Amazonn at the best price.
