The 30-minute Cook: The Best of the World's Quick Cooking

The 30-minute Cook: The Best of the World's Quick Cooking

by NigelSlater (Author)


Following on from Nigel Slater's "Real Fast Food", "The 30-minute Cook" delves further into ethnic and classic ideas suitable for those who like their food fast and without fuss, but who also want to eat imaginatively. "The 30-minute Cook" gives quick versions of popular European classics like porc au Pruneau, quick coq au vin, saltimbocca and salmon with pesto, but concentrates strongly on ethnic cuisine with recipes for 10-minute Thai chicken with lemon grass and chillies, twenty fast ideas for filling tacos, quick vegetable koftas and, of course, many Chinese stir-fries. This is the book for those who want to recreate the food they have eaten on their travels, but find most recipes offputtingly complicated and the ready-made meals in the supermarkets bland and dull in comparison. Despite the prevalence of ethnic recipes, none contains any ingredient that is not stocked by the majority of supermarkets and greengrocers. Almost all the recipes are suited to those who have time only to buy one or two ingredients on the way home, with much of the rest being in the average kitchen storecupboard.
