About the Author:

One of the nation's all-time favourite television chefs, Ainsley Harriott has become a much-loved face on our screens as the presenter of Ready Steady Cook and several other series. His recipe books have sold a total of 2 million copies worldwide and include the Feel-Good Cookbook, Ainsley's Barbecue Bible, Meals in Minutes, Low-fat Meals in Minutes, All New Meals in Minutes, Big Cook Out, the Friends and Family Cookbook and Just Five Ingredients.


Written to accompany the TV series, "Gourmet Express", by that inimitable chef Ainsley Harriott, aims to stop people buying ready-made food and eat fresh, home-cooked meals instead. Understanding today's hectic pace of life, Ainsley ensures all the recipes are quick to make - often taking less time than reheating a pre-packaged meal. Using fresh, seasonal produce, he also ensures the recipes are healthy. Gleaned from his travels around the world, it is a cosmopolitan collection of tasty dishes: iced cafe latte cups, spicy Spanish patatas bravas and green onion chapatis mix with traditional British fare such as minted mushy chip-shop peas, golden crumb-crunch scampi and Granny's corned-beef hash and fried egg. Appealing to every taste, the recipes also cater for a range of cooking methods: grilling, woks, baking or frying to give variety and encourage cooks to alter their cooking routines. So next time you think of a takeaway or look at the cellophane-wrapped cartons in the supermarket, stop and buy something tasty instead and make a delicious, exciting meal from the innovative concoctions in this book. - Lucy Watson
