During her career as a chef, Leila has worked at several well-known restaurants including Aquavit in New York, Operakallaren and Fredsgatan 12 in Stockholm. Today she works primarily in TV, where she has gained a huge following. Her primetime cooking show is called Leila's Food and airs on Swedish lifestyle channel, TV4 Plus. She also frequently appears cooking her simple and fast recipes on the biggest morning show in Sweden, the TV4 Morning News show, whose viewers voted her "TV Chef of the Year" in 2004.

The book contains over 150 recipes divided into 9 chapters featuring pizza, cheesecake, pancakes and waffles, tortano bread, blondies and brownies, sourdough, pies and pasta.
The book is friendly, attainable and achievable throughout and I especially like the breadth of the content and Leila's twists on classic ideas, such as five types of sweet pizza or a sweet potato cheesecake. I am equally inspired and charmed by the sweet shaped ravioli with butternut squash.
I really like that for many of the recipes there is a base recipe and then lots of variations. With the base brownie recipe there are nine variations including raspberry, lemon and blackberry, lavender and even brownie cupcakes. Hopefully the inclusion of all the variations will inspire and give cooks the confidence to try out their own ideas and adapt the recipes for their and their families' tastes.
The book focusses on great ideas for delicious bakes that are also simple, easy to make and not faffy, even the most timid cook can feel reassured by a recipe for a "not-too-difficult summer ice cream cake"! This is the type of book we like to use in the Fuss Free Kitchen. I firmly believe that great bakers are made, and not born and the only barrier to being a good baker is getting into the kitchen to practice, One More Slice provides plenty of inspiration to get into the kitchen and start to practise!
It is quite a random collection of recipes but well presented and I'd expect there'd be something there for most tastes. The recipes don't call for anything you couldn't find in an average supermarket and seem relatively straightforward and easy to follow. We have a good collection of cookbooks that we pick at from time to time. However, I predict this will be one we will return to regularly - definitely recommended.
