Cook The Week in 2 Hours

Caroline Pessin
Authors:
Caroline Pessin

How great would it be to come home from work each night without the stress of deciding what to make for dinner? To know there's a delicious, healthy meal ready so you can spend time with the kids or your partner, or just relaxing instead? This book makes that a reality. The idea is simple: set aside two hours at the weekend to batch-cook all of Monday-Friday's evening meals. Sixteen menus are grouped by the seasons and designed to feed a family of four. Each menu has seven recipes - five mains and two starters/light meals. Once you've done the prep, you can have all the dishes on the table in no more than fifteen minutes. No last-minute shopping, no expensive takeaways, no long stints in the kitchen when you want to put your feet up - just 80 homemade meals, with no fuss.

Mimi Spencer, Sam Rice

As featured in The Times and The Daily Mail.Are you at a point in your life where health is becoming more of a priority? Are you confused by ever-changing headlines that contrive to make the simple act of eating a peril rather than a pleasure? The Midlife Kitchen has the answers.Midlife is not a time to be concerned with food fads and foibles, but rather a glorious opportunity to wrest back control of your eating in the interests of health, happiness and a long life. Taste must certainly come first, but with health firmly snapping at its heels, underpinned by well-established nutritional common sense. Busy lives require simple, sustaining recipes that incorporate health-giving ingredients without too much fanfare or fuss. This book is not about 'clean-eating' or super foods, detoxing or restriction. Instead, it is about building up a balanced and diverse diet, with less sugar, better fat and good carbs. Alongside each recipe is the Midlife Kitchen emblem, the star anise. With each of the eight seeds representing a specific Midlife Health category - such as Hormone Harmony; Mind, Memory, Mood; or Heart Health - authors Sam and Mimi are able to provide simple nutritional information. Health tips explain the benefits of certain ingredients, while 'Why We Love It' sections explore the advantages of cooking each dish. Midlife Must-Haves show how to create homemade essentials such as Midlife Grown-up Granola, Midlife Power Porridge and Midlife Sweetener. From Seared Sirloin on Pan-roasted Veg to The Mother of All Greek Salads, Nurture Bircher to Three-ginger Fire Cake, the recipes in this book come together to create a vibrant menu bursting with mouth-watering flavours.
