Review

Simple to cook, simple to prepare is the ethos behind "Simple Food". Take half a dozen or so ingredients, mix them together and within half an hour you have a tasty yet simple dish to savour. Mouth-watering photographs of a calibre not often seen accompany the lively text - both by the talented Jill Dupleix aka "The Times Chef". The close-up shots look almost as though the food is actually in front of you, they make your nose twitch desperate to smell its scent, so realistic are they. These are accompanied by easy-to-understand recipes that vary from the simplistic grilled courgette salad, Catalan tomato bread and spiced quail eggs to the slightly more complex little egg and ham pies, Spanish meatballs and parmesan lamb cutlets. Complex is an exaggeration though, all the recipes only take half an hour or less to prepare and cook ensuring you more time to eat, drink and enjoy without the worry of cooking. Interspersed between each chapter are double-page spreads of suggestions for particular ingredients such as herbs, tomatoes and onions, all offering quick tips and easy to throw together recipes. Deserts such as rhubarb sponge pudding, banana ice-cream and chocolate bourbon balls will whet even the most savoury of appetites. From snacks, brunches, lunches, dinners and suppers, all are enthusiastically embraced and served up in a new simple way - made simpler yet more exotic - drawing on Jill's vast experience in the cooking industry. For anyone looking for an easy life yet wanting delicious home-cooked food, look no further. - Lucy Watson

Format: Paperback
I purchased this cookbook when I was on vacation in Montreal. It quickly became my favorite cookbook once I was home and started trying the recipes. Ingredients are easy to find and the combinations are great. Most every recipe I have tried was very fresh and complex at the same time. I had one glitch on the baked spaghetti which we found a little bitter. But the fish, beef, potatoe recipes are GREAT! The beef with shallots and the swofdfish recipe are especially wonderful.

I love to cook and Jill Duplex's cookbooks are among the best there are. The recipies in most of her recent books are straightforward, and they work. I just wish she'd write some more. She's also funny, with a chatty, helpful style that is unique. Donna Hay, Bill Grainger, eat your hearts out - Jill's the real deal without the showbiz.

I have this book and another one called Take Three (about cooking with three ingredients). Great photos, no-fuss(quick) methods, available ingredients. And an enthusiasm for food that's contagious. And of course, the recipes taste great. Her Spanish Meatballs recipe and Caramel Salmon and Lime are standards in our household. I'm thinking now about her latest featuring healthy eating... I'm also a big Nigel Slater fan...

I bought this for my daughter-in-law as I love my copy. It was supposed to be in "very good" condition. More like "okay" would have been truer. Obviously well used... which is fine.
