There is a movement now towards families and friends eating together and eating home cooked food with ingredients that are considered. "Family Cookbook" is about bringing people together to eat simple and good food every day. It is for people who have a family as well as for those who live with friends or a partner. With over 120 recipes divided into chapters including Stocking the Storecupboard, Cooking for One or Two, Cooking with Children, Quick Weekday Meals, Weekend Recipes and Cooking Family Meals for Special Occasions, "Family Cookbook" is the everyday cookbook you'll turn to again and again for inspiration. Recipes range from the simple, such as pork and noodle stir fry, to encourage non-cooks into the kitchen, to Thai chicken curry and Moroccan spice poussin for the more experienced cook. None of the recipes, however, is beyond the reach of an enthusiastic amateur cook. The aim of the book is to get families away from takeaways and ready meals and to get them in the kitchen preparing healthy, 'real' food that doesn't cost the earth. At the beginning of each chapter there is helpful and practical advice about where to buy key ingredients, how to plan your meals in advance and build up a collection of recipes that you can have on standby whatever the occasion. "Family Cookbook" is the only everyday cookbook you'll need.
