Ben O'Donoghue loves nothing more than cooking fresh, simple food for his family and friends. From weeknight dinners made with ingredients in the pantry to lavish dishes for a special occasion, Ben invites readers into his home to be inspired by his favourite dishes for every day. With chapters covering breakfast and brunch, everyday meals, entertaining, leftovers and sweets, At Home with Ben is for both beginner home cooks and those who are more experienced. Try Homemade Crumpets for breakfast, Chicken and Mushroom Pie for lunch, Snapper Tagine with Preserved Lemon and Chickpeas for dinner or Classic Chocolate Fondant for dessert. Ben also takes inspiration from the cuisines of other countries, with recipes such as Miso Beef, Vietnamese Lamb Chops and Palestinian Potato Salad. And there are lots of recipes that your children will love to help you make and eat, such as My Kids' Favourite Fish Cakes and Mixed Berry and Ricotta Crepes. Written in Ben's laidback style and with over 60 colour photographs, At Home with Ben is a cookbook that you and your family will use to make simple and delicious meals for every occasion.
