COOK BOOK 187 recipes that will make you incredibly popular

“If you’ve seen what I wear, being fashionable is not really on my radar. I hate the very notion of the conformity that phrase implies. I suspect that, just like you, I just want to be bright, and sweet, and tasty, and complex, and sharp, and fun. And I’ll wear what I like, thank you very much. Which leads me to the recipes in this book, which are bright, and sweet, and tasty, and complex, and sharp, and fun; they also really don’t care what the trend slaves say about them. Neither will you when you get your laughing gear around them!"

–Matt Preston

Matt Preston's simple, inventive, hearty recipes have been finding their way into family repertoires for more than a decade now. This latest collection brings together nearly 200 of his favourite dishes, from slow-cooked roasts and tasty braises to mouth-watering desserts and tea-time treats. But it's not all twice-cooked sticky ribs and croissant bread and butter puddings; within these pages you'll find killer kale recipes, fresh, Asian-inspired starters and more delicious salads than you can shake a stick at. In fact, there are so many salads we had to create a new section for those that went beyond being mere sides to achieving mains status. Ladies and gentlemen, may we introduce you to … The Ubersalads.

Scattered throughout are handfuls of food ʻhacksʼ: 2-ingredient cakes, sneaky cheatsʼ tips and tricks to make everyday cooking even faster.
