I bought Miguel's first book and loved it so had to have this one. Another great book full of easy and tasty food. I find both books very useful as I live on my own and all recipes are based on one serving, brilliant for me. Ingredients are all easy to get and you'll probably have most in store cupboard already.
Bought for my son to take to university but I have used it lots for family meals. Some different meals and my son likes the clear instructions plus the breakfast ideas that I wasn't interested in. I am not sure if £1 is accurate especially as there is a lot of "handfuls" of ingredients which you obviously cannot buy like that, although he has a few recipes using up the extra ingredient. I am quite often disappointed by recipe books that look good from the outside but there are only a small handful of recipes that you like or like to cook. This book has lots of useful recipes and good ideas. I would definitely buy a Miguel Barclay recipe book again.
Good old Miguel, this series of books are great. Some recipes are a bit hit and miss, but that's the nature of the game, some you like, some you don't. But, give it a try, you don't like it? Nevermind, it was cheap, move onto the next recipe.
You'll need a basic pantry for a good experience , herbs, spices good oil, garlic etc nothing special but it will help.
I've got all 3 books and i dip in and out at least once a week. On the whole, dishes are simple and straight forward. Recommended for all levels.
Just written a review for the other of Miguel'sbooks and the same glowing recommendation stands for this addition too. Great recipes, easy to execute and so tasty. The fact the ingredients list isn't a page long and that they are cost effective is a bonus. Highly recommend both books and I can't wait to work my way through them happily
I absolutely love these books. I heard Miguel Barclay on the radio and thought I'd check them out, sounded too good to be true. I started getting his recipes from Instagram and then borrowed the books from the library. I have made so many of his recipes, they are so quick, so easy and so tasty, some of the tastiest meals I have ever made. So I had to buy the books. They are not a recipe book which will just sit on the shelf, unused. I regularly make the recipes after work, when you're usually too tired to bother too much. And you'll never look at a chicken thigh in the same way again! I still need to try the vegan one, but I would highly recommend the other three.
What can I say the man is a culinary genius! Once again another outstanding book full of recipes from Miguel. I like the fact there is more vegetarian recipes in this book plus the fact he uses frozen spinach and frozen fish too. The Sticky Wings are incredible the nicest wings I have ever had!
We literally can't cook to save our lives, but this has been a massive game changer. Initially we bought this to help budget more effectively with our food shopping, this is a really good starting point for meals and snacks that you can scale up without much hassle. Loads of the same ingredients are found throughout the book without needing to buy expensive things you use once like in other cook books. Similarly Miguel's method is much easier to follow than traditional recipe books, no strict measurements/timings so you don't feel as if you messed things up.
Wow these cookery books are a revelation. As someone who lives on their own but likes cooking I was fed up of trying to portion recipe ingredients for one! It's all done for you in Miguel'sbooks. I have been stuck cooking the same old things but his books have made me want to experiment and they use everyday ingredients!
