Michelin-starred chef offers 200 recipes for anyone who loves good food but is strapped for time—includes an inspired chapter on giving new life to leftovers

Focusing on a simple, home style of cooking, there's something in this collection for every occasion. It ranges from fast fixes, such as Peppered Steaks with Crushed Roast Garlic or Salmon Baked with Juniper and Lemon Thyme; to twists on classic comfort food such as Ham and Mustard Macaroni; Toasted Sourdough with Aubergine, Basil and Sheep's Cheese; and Lamb Rump with Rosemary Polenta and Parmesan. There is also a chapter for weekend cooking—pies, slow-roasts, and hearty fare—and one on how to get creative with your leftovers. Other highlights include irresistible desserts: Caramelised Blood Oranges with Grand Marnier, Baked Ricotta Cake, and Roasted Plums with Cardamom Caramel. The emphasis is on simplicity—recipes that can be prepared and cooked without any fuss, making cooking a pleasure rather than a chore. Includes metric measurements.
