Ruby Tandoh wants us all to cook, and this is her cookbook for all of us – the real home cooks, juggling babies or long commutes, who might have limited resources and limited time. From last-minute inspiration to delicious meals for one, easy one-pot dinners to no-chop recipes for when life keeps your hands full, Ruby brings us 100 delicious, affordable and achievable recipes, including salted malted magic ice cream, one-tin smashed potatoes with lemony sardines and pesto and an easy dinner of plantain, black beans and eden rice. This is a new kind of cookbook for our times: an accessible, inclusive and inspirational addition to any and every kitchen.
You don’t have to be an aspiring chef for your food to be delectable or for cooking to be a delight. Cook as you are.
