Product description

Who doesn't look forward to that hour of respite, the break from the grind, and the chance to devour a killer sandwich or gorgeous bowl of wholesome soup? But, at work, lunch easily gets overlooked. We grab a bite to eat; we nip out to buy that soulless, soggy egg bap. The Little Book of Lunch is filled with delicious and simple recipes for the working person's packed lunchbox. It is for anyone who has found themselves staring at the shelves in their local sandwich chain or their work canteen with a growling stomach and sinking feeling. The Little Book of Lunch has clever approaches to classics making them easy for transportation; meals that taste delicious at room temperature; quickly assembled dishes for when you barely have five minutes; recipes for when the cupboards are bare. It includes: wholesome and healthy salads like tabouleh; indulgent and decadent dining like grilled halloumi, vegetable and avocado couscous; sandwiches for when you are chained to your desk like guacamole and tomato salsa on rye; store-cupboard snacks like spicy lentil and coconut soup; and, sweet treats to bribe colleagues like salted caramel brownies.

Tim Hayward "A rallying cry to the homemade midday meal, packed with recipes and ideas that promise to transform working life" -- Susannah Butter Evening Standard "The move towards packed lunches is happening more and more, and one book that we think will inspire a few extra converts is this one ... [an] inspiring little book" A Little Bird "This book is perfect. Not only that, it is beautifully presented, fun, delightful, and full to capacity of ways to make a packed lunch memorable" UK Press Syndication "Guaranteed to inject some joy into your lunchtime routine and save money at the same time" Bristol Post "Give a copy of the book to everyone in your team and you'll never go hungry at work" -- Emma Sturgess Metro
