Donna Hay is all about making life easier. The New Easy is Donna's answer to her own quest to make things faster, simpler and tastier in the kitchen. It offers solutions to the age-old dilemmas of home cooks everywhere - what can I put on the table through the week that's fast and delicious, and what do I serve on the weekend that's a little more special?

Full of short, concise recipes that are big on flavour, the new easy offers five chapters: weeknights, weekends, sides and salads, baking, and desserts. Each chapter contains clever ideas to restyle particular recipes, so if you loved Tuesday night's lemongrass chicken, learn how to transform it into a chic starter for Saturday's dinner or a tasty sandwich for Sunday's picnic. These twists are all about versatility for a whole new and easy repertoire.

About the Author

At the age of eight, Donna Hay skipped into a kitchen, picked up a mixing bowl and never looked back. She moved to the world of magazine test kitchens and publishing, where she established her trademark style of simple, smart and seasonal recipes all beautifully put together and photographed. It is food for every cook, every food lover, every day and every occasion. Her unique style turned her into an international food-publishing phenomenon as a bestselling author of 16 cookbooks, publisher of donna hay magazine, newspaper columnist, and creator of a homewares and food range.

The New Easy

4.0 1


'It wouldn't be Christmas without a Donna Hay hardcover to lust after and this year is no exception. She is one of Australia's most trusted and loved cookbook writers, penning recipes that are stylish, easy to cook and make you look like you've been styling food shoots all your life. Example: whole herb roasted cauliflower is a dish so simple, you wonder why it hasn't been done before. Its simplicity is its secret: lots of lovely herbs and flavourings rubbed into a whole head of cauli and roasted. Boom! Donna is surfing the zeitgeist too: chipotle maple pork ribs, fish tacos with lime and tequila dressing, pork and prawn pot-stickers, sloppy Joe sliders ... you get the idea. Every recipe comes knowledgeable aside. A great book for the summer hols.' -- West Australian

'Donna Hay consistently delivers beautiful, usable cookbooks, and this one is no exception. It's a visual feast, with full-page, minimalist pictures on thick paper. 'Restyle' options makes recipes work double-time, with simple tips to turn dishes such as lemongrass chicken salad into posh baguettes or an elegant dinner party starter; or a spiced lamb and tahini tart into finger food snacks. The food is elegant, fuss-free, on-trend, and very pretty.' -- Courier Mail
