Cooking for one is a satisfying and rewarding exercise; it needn't be a dull, repetitive cycle of the same meals and endless leftovers. Linda's imaginative and inspiring recipes are divided into 5 chapters, Almost Instant, A Little Ahead, Give It Time, Make It An Event and Those Little Extras, making it simple to find the perfect meal for any occasion. Create speedy meals to throw together such as Avocado Coddled Quail Eggs with Smoky Bacon and Parsley Breadcrumbs, or roast a whole chicken that can then be used to create Asian Meatballs in Broth, or a Rich Comforting Chicken Risotto with Lemon and Wild Garlic. Linda also gives handy tips for spicing up otherwise lacklustre dishes, such as keeping your larder stocked with ready-to-use additions like Herb Chilli Butter, Toasted Pine Nuts or Crispy Shallot Pieces.
