Quick Simple Food Hardcover – April 15, 2003
From the Inside Flap
"Life is too hectic to cook gourmet food every night.? ?There are too many ingredients in the really great recipes.? ?Eating healthy is too much work.? ?If it doesn?t take a lot of effort, it won?t taste good.? These and many other misconceptions are proven wrong in Susie Quick?s Quick Simple Food, packed with 150 recipes sizzling with flavor, flair, and style?and without the hassle. These fresh, healthy dishes encompass the entire meal, from satisfying salads and amazingly quick pastas to nourishing stews and delicious desserts.
Quick Simple Food takes the path less traveled by quick-and-easy cookbooks and presents a world tour of sophisticated cuisine, from Latin America, Italy, and Greece to India, China, and Japan?and featuring a delectable array of updated American classics?while maintaining a focus on accessible ingredients and easy techniques.
And although nearly everything takes less than thirty minutes to prepare, this is more than mere daily sustenance?these recipes are for sophisticated diners who happen to be short on time, not just for can-opener cooks who happen to be hungry. The beautiful color photographs and the elegant design prove another myth wrong: quick and easy doesn?t have to mean dull and dowdy.

Top Customer Reviews
Some of the ingrediants are expensive and hard to find but it's worth the money and effort. There's more to cooking than Worschestershire sauce, ketchup and cream of mushroom soup.
Our family has lived between Paris, Sydney, London and New York for the past twenty years and are very keen on ethnic yet sophisticated foods. Susies' recipes are just that without cutting corners that can lead to less than successful results. Once you've tried the Turkish Meatloaf you'll know what I'm talking about.
The photographs are magnificent and the look of the book is sleek and modern. I'm inspired to try any of the recipes by just looking at those images.
Susie Quick is the best thing to happen to good food since Donna Hay.
Two thumbs up!
This book is terrific for someone who wants to eat well but doesn't have a lot of time to waste fussing around in the kitchen. I didn't spend more than a half hour on any of these dishes, and it's so satisfying to finally be able to impress family and friends with my cooking! It's also beautifully illustrated, so it'd make great gift book as well.
