Alex Hollywood: Cooking Tonight
Simple recipes to put the joy back into weekday suppers
By Alex Hollywood
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.

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.
