More About the Author

Having worked for the past 30 plus years doing her favourite thing, cooking, mostly in the UK and the Caribbean Suzy Bowler is now eager to pass on all the interesting, useful and downright quirky recipes, ideas and food related info she has accumulated during this time.

The Leftovers Handbook

On her return to the UK Suzy was amazed at the blatant food waste that now seems to be rife in the country; amazed and irritated. So much so, in fact that she started a blog called "Sudden Lunch! ~ spontaneous eating from store cupboard and leftovers" as an attempt to show people that there is a great alternative to throwing food away. Sudden Lunch! recently received the unusual accolade of being No, 11 in Cision's Top 10 UK Food Bloggers List! - http://ow.ly/u9n6A

This interest in leftovers naturally led to a book on the same subject; "The Leftovers Handbook ~ an A-Z of every conceivable ingredient in your kitchen with inspirational ideas and recipes for using" them which lists over 450 possible leftover ingredients with all the interesting and creative ideas she can think of for getting the best out of them.

Key Recipes

In addition to The Leftovers Handbook and several stand-alone ebooks on cooking Suzy is writing a series of books each giving one key recipe with numerous ways to use it. In each case she gives lots of useful extra information in the hope that readers will be inspired to go on to create their own delicious meals.

Here is the link to visit Sudden Lunch! http://suddenlunch.blogspot.co.uk/ and if you would like to be kept abreast of Suzy's writing please sign up to her mailing list and she's let you know what's happening - http://eepurl.com/R10bb
