Synopsis

Fay's Family Food by Fay Ripley

For the past 5 years, Fay Ripley has been cooking for her growing family. Spurred on by the lack of inspiration out there, she has written this cookbook full of recipes for all the family. The vital ingredient is that you only need to cook one meal. She was fed up of having to cook separately for her 1-year-old, then having to knock up something for her 5-year-old and then, with the kids in bed, finally think about cooking something to enjoy with her husband. So she started working out meals that all of them could eat together - not separate ingredients, age dependent.This book offers suggestions and inspiration to feed your family. It's there to get you in the swing so that you can find 15 minutes to knock up something that you're proud to see them eat. The idea is to cook food that you can remove your babies' and kids' portions from, before adding the more challenging ingredients for yourselves.In Fay's words: 'I am living this. It's easy. I've kept it simple. Sometimes I get it wrong. Sometimes I have to throw pans away (multi-tasking can lead to burnt food). But the Italians do it. So why can't we?'

Reviews

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

Emma Smith

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!
