Author(s): Jo Seagar
Having sold more than 67,000 copies, this wonderful cookbook has stood the test of time. Now updated and revised the recipes are still fashionable and delicious and are designed to be easy to cook, inexpensive and sure to impress the guests. Jo's philosophy of Maximum Effect for minimum effort still reigns supreme. This includes every recipe you need for successful entertaining, for example: nibbles like tasty Crispy cheese olive balls; entrees like Thai prawn and lemongrass soup; mains like Lamb tagine or Orange sesame beef and bok choy; desserts like Greek cocnut lemon cake or raspberry peach sorbet. These will become staples in your repetoire - classic recipes that work and which you can call on time and time again. With a new format - the same as 2006's Jo Seagar Cooks - this book looks and feels terrific. First published 1997; this edition September 2007.
