Review Text

There are those who find Ainsley Harriott a touch overpowering on TV, but few would deny that the man is one of the great communicators on the subject of food. His gift is to make the arcane secrets of cooking seem accessible to all, and his books have successfully translated his skills to a new medium, while still incorporating that infectious humour that is the hallmark of his television shows. Here the larger-than-life Harriott takes a look at some of the most appealing fast food on offer, and persuasively makes the point that fast food does not necessarily mean that the highest standards cannot be maintained. Looking at the kind of fast food most of us consume when we're out of doors, Harriott comprehensively demonstrates that there are plenty of highly appetizing alternatives that can be prepared at home. Concentrating on making quality food speedily as opposed to recreating take-away food, he proposes a change in both our manner of eating and our manner of cooking, putting a new stress on more healthy homemade versions. Over 120 straightforward and appealing recipes are at the heart of the book, including soup to go (tempting soups conjured up at great speed), fast fish recipes and dishes from Thailand, China and Italy to name but a few. An invaluable collection. (Kirkus UK)show more
