This guide should be useful for anyone who wishes to cook healthy, interesting dishes for a small family or just for themselves. It contains over 150 recipes for everyday meals that involve the minium preparation and fuss to make, and is the aimed at anyone who wants appealing alternatives to their normal menus or convenience foods. It is also suitable for those who are shopping on a budget, but who want a variety of fresh, delicious dishes for everyday eating. In the tradition of the Leith cookbooks, each recipe is simple to follow and clearly explained, and all the recipes have been tried and tested by Leith's School of Food and Wine. The book also contains practical information on subjects, such as shopping for small quantities, buying wine and storing it once it has been opened, and saving food by cooking and freezing. The recipes are easy to prepare: for example, blue cheese risotto, pan-fried cod with mustard and dill cream, chicken breast with cumin and mint, turkey burgers with grilled vegetables, lentil shepherd's pie, roast red peppers with goat's cheese, simple strawberry ice cream and pears savoyade.
Whether it is a straightforward meal for any day of the week, or a dish for a more special occasion, this book should be useful for those cooking for one or two. Polly Tyrer is the author of "Party Pieces", "Chocolate Cakes" and (with Prue Leith) "Entertaining with Style".
