It appears that Prepped! was written just for me.' Laura Tenison, Founder & MD JoJo Maman Bebe.'Great ingredients, proper food, but with the odd short-cut and doubling up of recipes to help you on your way. Vanessa calls it "linked cooking".'

Having it all isn't's about being ahead of the game, and Prepped! is the answer to how I can fit in cooking fabulous food for my family & friends easily, whilst running one of the UK's most creative chocolate establishments.'

I love the idea of cooking one thing that can be used for many different meals!'

Vanessa shows you how to make numerous flavoured syrups, sugars, dressings and preserves which enable you to carry these flavours quickly and easily through to your cooking.'

By linking recipes and using layering techniques yopu can go out to work, bring up your children and still impress family and friends with your cooking!'
