'This is a godsend to anyone who has to get dinner on the table for a family every night, and Ellis's recipes aim to help home cooks get out of a rut' Sunday Times (Ireland). 'This style of cooking allows surprising latitude, with not only soups and stews, but puddings and exotic one-pot dishes too. There's also a useful bibliography' Country Life. 'If any book were written for how we could and should cook this is it. Real food, no fads, easily cooked from scratch. The need to feed ourselves well each day can baffle even the enthusiastic cook. Ellis' book solves this problem' The Field. 'An utterly brilliant family cookbook. Delicious, easy, thrifty recipes that cook in one pot. If that sounds slightly dull, it really isn't - they are modern, intelligently thought out recipes from all over the globe. Make sure you read the little boxes and sidebars, which often tell you useful things about changing the recipe, padding it out, or what to use if you haven't got the exact ingredients. Fantastic book' India Knight. 'This splendid book is likely to appeal to busy families like Hattie Ellis' own ... A well-laid-out collection of hearty recipes with added tips and suggestions' The Sunday Express. 'Contains far more than just: chuck it in, lid on, in the oven ... I really like how simple this book is ... I can see myself regularly picking this book up for some no fuss ideas in the future' Caroline Taylor, All That I'm Eating. 'Life is complicated enough without making a mountain out of a mealtime ... Hattie's solution is a time-honoured one, batch cooking dishes and concocting one-pots ... Now she has compiled the recipes into a book, The One Pot Cook' Daily Telegraph. 'Full of simple and unfussy recipes ... there really is something for everyone' BBC Good Food. 'Perfect for anybody who feels slightly unsure about their skills in the kitchen ... Beautifully illustrated and cleverly curated, the 150 one pot recipes will become instant family favorites' Great British Food Magazine.
