My new cookbook is full of recipes for stuff that is quite simply delicious, and that I cook for my family and friends. It's a wee bit different from my first book in that the dishes are fresher, lighter, healthier... Well, that was the idea. I then suggested all those naughty, over-the-top dishes that I also love. These had to go into a sealed section because, like a Bangkok nightclub act, they are just a little too full-on for the delicate stomachs of some, and for the good of your health. That section is sealed for your own safety. Please resist opening it if you are a helpless slave to your passions. In short, this book is like me. It starts out with REALLY GOOD intentions for a while until it is overwhelmed by temptation and then, quite frankly, once self-control is gone it turns into a bit of an orgiastic free-for-all. Good times! Welcome to the Pleasure Dome, my friends, please grab a fork. Matt Preston.

Buy this book for the poached chicken recipe ( which I use just about every week ). This is a family friendly, easy to use cookbook. It is a go-to treasure trove of every day recipes that can be sourced from the butcher and local supermarket. The recipes are simple to follow, don't take too long and have great left-over ideas.
I also enjoy Matt's easy to read and friendly banter in the book, not taking himself too seriously and showcasing the FOOD and not his talents as a CHEF, but those of a home cook!
easy to use recipes and and enjoyable read
I bought this as a gift for my daughter who is a keen cook, and she was absolutely delighted!
