Several things about this book make it stand out, the thrifty, timesaving approach, the ideas for using leftovers and how to cook more one day and use the extras for a new recipe the next. Rachel Allen attempts to banish the idea that cooking everyday is unachievable for working parents. Some forethought, a bit of effort and with the aid of her ideas it is possible and the families health – and purse will both benefit.

Synopsis

Rachel's Everyday Kitchen Simple, Delicious Family Food by Rachel Allen

Cookery teacher and home cook Rachel Allen returns with clever ideas, simple shortcuts and plenty of practical advice for achieving simple, wholesome and nutritious meals day after day. This stunning, fully photographed cookbook includes over 100 tried-and-tested new recipes from bestselling cook Rachel Allen. After years of cooking for her family, teaching at the world-renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School and listening to the questions of home cooks, Rachel has pulled together an ultimate cookery manual for getting great food on the table throughout the week without stress, expensive bills or hours at the stove. Rachel's Kitchen is all about everyday clever cooking: simple shortcuts, advice on weekly planning and shopping, wasting less, freezing more, preparing ahead and using leftovers, recipes than can serve more and those that can be adjusted to a tasty meal for one or two. Rachel will show you how to cook once but achieve two or three meals. A side dish of baked broccoli with garlic and pine nuts can be transformed into a spelt salad with feta. Extra mashed potato and smoked fish from a fish pie can become instant, warming Cullen Skink the next day. Her approach saves time and money, but also allows cooking to be satisfying and enjoyable rather than a chore. Rachel's thrifty recipes don't require unusual ingredients that will linger at the back of the cupboard but affordable favourite ingredients that get used multiple times and underused cuts of meat or seasonal vegetables that can be made into a truly delicious dish.
