'Sumptuous simple recipes, inspired by Alex's travels and family gatherings.' Mary Berry
'Home cooking that is perfectly suited for midweek family meals or special occasions with friends. Enjoy it people!' Tom Kerridge
As Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood freely admits, it's his wife Alex who is in charge of cooking in the Hollywood household. She's the one who plans, shops and cooks so they can enjoy delicious home-made food with family and friends.
An accomplished self-taught cook who comes from a family of food-lovers, Alex is passionate about food but firmly believes that cooking and eating are about one thing: enjoyment.
Her recipes fall into one of two categories -- quick and simple for when you don't have much time during the week, or slow and simple for a lazy weekend at home.
But simple doesn't mean ordinary. With a few clever twists and drawing on influences from her travels and her family (a glamorous French grandma, a father brought up in Spain and a Norwegian great grandmother) Alex's recipes are easy, inexpensive and just a little bit different.
For anyone who wants inspiration for quick mid-week meals, impromptu kitchen suppers with friends or relaxed weekend socials, My Busy Kitchen is the book for you.
Alex Hollywood is passionate about food and firmly believes that cooking and eating should be about one thing: enjoyment, not worrying about presentation and whether your roux is made to Michelin-star standards. Having grown up in Kent, Alex's cooking has been shaped by her Norwegian great-grandmother, her French godmother, her father's love of Spain, and her time living in Cyprus. Her twitter feed @Hollywood wife has quickly built up fans eager for recipe ideas and food tweets. Alex is a regular on ITV's Lorraine. My Busy Kitchen is her first book.
