Irish chef and BBC TV personality Skehan (Fresh) presents a scrumptious array of quick and clever meals for busy home cooks. He divides his book into time-saving categories (among them one pot, quick prep/slow cook, six ingredients); offers tips on planning, shopping, and meal prep; and suggests key equipment and ingredients to have on-hand. He also includes a valuable list of kitchen "cheats" that will shave off prep time such as using ready-cooked noodles and prepared bags of vegetables. Delightful one-pot meals include Thai chicken stew, super veggie dahl, and a cauliflower mac-and-cheese bake. For flavorful single-pan meals there's a chimichurri steak with baby gem and spring onion, a sticky orange chicken stir-fry, and quick kale and mushroom risotto. Skehan also shares tempting recipes for seafood (such as a single-pan Vietnamese caramel salmon), beef (a slow-cooked beef and Guinness stew), and poultry (a garlic and rosemary chicken with gnocchi). Home cooks will be thrilled with the number of easily prepared meals they can add to the rotation.
