'This book has totally changed the way I cook during the week. Most of the recipes have so few ingredients that it's easy to raid the storecupboard to make them, just picking up fresh meat or fish when required. Plus, they're really speedy to prepare which is what I need after a busy day at work. I can't do without it in the kitchen now, but the rest of the team keep pinching my copy!
Here are 3 of my favourite recipes from the book:
Fig & Ricotta Toasts
In comparison to some cheeses ricotta may seem a bit banal but it just works so well in simple dishes like this, I absolutely love it. The sweetness of the honey, figs and fruit bread is the ideal partner for the creamy cheese. Perfect brunch dish.
One Pan Sunday Lunch
Not the prettiest of dishes but this has to be the ultimate in comfort food; crispy potatoes and chicken thighs smothered in creamy bread sauce what more could you want!
Roast Chicken Pho
This is definitely one of those dishes you'll make again; ginger, lime and star anise make a delicious full flavoured broth to go with the roasted sticky soy chicken and noodles. Just the ticket for these chilly Autumn nights.'
