While many cookbooks and cooking shows would have us think that cooking dinner involves long lists of ingredients and several hours of commitment in the kitchen, UK author and food journalist Sue Quinn proves that it really doesn't have to be that way. Cook Fast, Eat Well is a must-have book for those wanting to prepare wonderful food quickly and easily with a handful of well-chosen ingredients. Tip One: Keep your pantry stocked with fresh pasta, jars of marinated vegetables, frozen fruit, punchy sauces, cans of passatta and excellent stock cubes or bouillon powders - all great short-cut ingredients that mean you can cook speedily without compromising on flavour. Tip Two: assemble all your ingredients and cooking utensils before you start cooking. Tip 3: practice makes perfect so the more you cook these recipes, the quicker you'll become.With 160 recipes altogether, from plates to share and light bites, salads and soups, to pasta dishes, to meat, poultry and seafood dishes and of course, desserts, Sue Quinn promises that you can have a dish on the table in 10 minutes using just 5 ingredients.
So get cooking Sue's Spicy halloumi burger or her Avocado pesto gnocci and start dunking Garlic tortilla chips into Black bean and harissa dip and Taramasalata; whip up a quick family dinner of Chicken curry with naan bread; and sate your sweet tooth with Caramel chew ice cream or White chocolate and blueberry mousse.
