No one knows food like Matt Preston, one of Australia's most loved TV personalities, award-winning food journalist and recipe writer, judge on MasterChef Australia... and a seriously good home cook.

Gathered here for the first time are Matt's best recipes for the dishes he cooks at home for his own family – from his award-winning raspberry jam to the perfect bolognese sauce. These are delicious, honest recipes that work – a virtual A – Z of the things you cook every day, including the best pumpkin soup, the perfect banana bread, the ultimate lamb roast and the only lasagne recipe you'll ever need, all accompanied by highly entertaining stories from Matt's own cooking life.

Every page is packed with tips and additional recipe ideas. There's nothing cheffy to be found here, just great, straightforward meal ideas, including lots of cheeky dinner shortcuts using things such as bought BBQ chooks, packets of puff pastry, chops, chicken wings and more.

These are the definitive recipes for every kitchen and will soon become the everyday cookbook you won't be able do without!

Faulty cook book it feel to pieces the minute I opened it up


I love the recipes but the book fell apart the minute I opened it up

Family friendly recipes you can use


I own over 500 cookbooks and all of the Matt Preston Books are used more frequently than all the rest. He is not a CHEF and doesn't expect his readers to be either. He knows good simple food. Having kids, he understands that recipes need to be fairly child friendly, so his food ( unlike some) is not laden with chilli and ingredients only found at boutique suppliers. You can buy all of the ingredients in the local supermarket or butcher. I LOVE the 4 ways with: bought puff pastry / sausages / a supermarket roast chook / left over bolognaise etc. This is a food writer who hasn't lost touch with reality and what the average home chef is capable of or has the TIME to do. Love this book!!!!!!!!!

top of my Christmas pile


Who said that Matt Preston pontificates? His 100 Best Recipes speaks the casual cook's language. Great suggestions; easy to follow; funny and encouraging. Let me loose in the kitchen. Best of the bunch this Christmas :)
