There are cookery books to look at, ones to admire, ones to impress, the others are the ones we use everyday. And I can safely say that this is a book for everyday, one destined to get covered in bits with the cover falling off. Yes, it's a go to book for good plain nosh, either for feeding large numbers or for eating and freezing or eating and changing the left overs into something equally delicious. Hattie Ellis has an eye on the clock, on the cook's purse and on the lovely produce we have in the UK and has produced a wonderful collection of home-cooked delights. ~ Sue Baker

A 'Piece of Passion' from the publisher...
Most of the cookery books on my shelf – and I am a self-professed cookery book junkie – have one, at the most two, recipes that have graced my table more than once. Lovely to flip through, I often just don't find myself fancying more than a clutch of dishes in each. But now I have The One Pot Cook, my new go-to cookery bible. I've found recipes in here to get me through a last-minute dinner for twelve; many weekday suppers for two; a birthday; lunch with my (very discerning) godmother... There's something here for everyone. Most of the recipes are really simple, the few that aren't are so clearly explained by Hattie I've found myself being much more daring in the kitchen – I've finally overcome my filo phobia! If you think one pot cooking is old fashioned, boring and slow, think again. Hattie's 150 recipes cover everything from summer soups to winter stews to curries from around the world as well as some just plain yummy puddings – all done in one pot so there's hardly any washing up. Now what's not to like about that?
