  • Hardback
  • £25.00

Recipes to put the oomph back into weekday suppers.

An exciting new cookery book for anyone whose heart sinks at the question: 'What shall we have for dinner tonight?'.

In spite of her Hollywood name, Alex is a busy working mum who faces all the usual challenges: not enough time, too much to do, wanting to feed her family good home cooked food but bored by endless food shopping. Sound familiar? Guided by her fuss-free approach to cooking and drawing on the recipes from her popular Twitter feed @hollywood_wife, Cooking Tonight is based around the staple ingredients we all buy in our weekly shop, showing us how to throw them together to create delicious and easy home cooked suppers. These recipes will fit easily into your mid-week meal planning, many of them using up leftovers, and are versatile enough for it not to matter if you don't have all the right ingredients.

Mealtimes should be a time when we sit together, even for a short while, to unwind and relax, and enjoy a good meal. This stress-free cookbook will give you new ideas to put the oomph back into your cooking and pleasure into your eating.

Chapters include:
Soups; Chicken; Mince; Pork; Beef; Lamb; Fish; Meat-free; Pasta; Toasties; Something Sweet

Biographical Notes

Alex Hollywood is passionate about food and firmly believes that cooking and eating should be about one thing: enjoyment, not worrying about presentation and whether your roux is made to Michelin-star standards. Having grown up in Kent, Alex's cooking has been shaped by her Norwegian great-grandmother, her French godmother, her father's love of Spain, and her time living in Cyprus. Her twitter feed @Hollywood_wife has quickly built up fans eager for recipe ideas and food tweets. Alex is a regular on ITV's Lorraine. My Busy Kitchen is her first book.

Cosy

Laura Weir
Authors:
Laura Weir

The language of cosy is part of the English lexicon - 'cosy up', 'cosy down', 'tea cosy', 'cosy toes'; cosy is a concept intrinsically connected to British culture; think cups of warm tea, crunchy toast, a great book, open fires, cosy clothes, wet and windy wrapped up walks, rain trickling on the window - it speaks to people who value comfort and tucking in, and never globally, have we been looking to feel more reassured. With Brexit looming, A.I developing, social media draining and a sense of community dissipating, the public are looking for permission to hunker down with those closest to them in a warm, safe and cosy environment. As the world gets bigger and more intimidating we are seeing value in the small things that make us feel good and matter to us in the UK. The Book of Cosy is a celebratory guide to living your cosiest life and Laura will decipher why it is that that the notion of cosiness is having a moment and how reconnecting with a simple, cosy life is replacing the hassle of adventure and costly material pleasures. The Book of Cosy will be a wonderful, comforting acknowledgement and antidote to feeling overwhelmed in modern life - a celebration of our quaint and quirky traditions, habits and loves, new and old and an examination of why this zeitgeist is more relevant than ever.Chapters will include: HOME & HEARTH, TEXTILES, PASTIMES, FOOD and WEATHER - with beautiful, charming line illustrations throughout.
