    'I love the pared-down premise of this book. John has created clever ingredient combinations that demonstrate the power of simplicity in cooking. The photography is lickable, too...' --Karen Barnes, Editor, Delicious Magazine

    'This book, with its focus on recipes that rely on a mere 5 ingredients (over and above his essential store cupboard) is as rich in flavour and flair as his previous two titles; the pared-back approach certainly doesn't imply any constraints on his creativity.' --Nigella Lawson

    'Simpler recipes don't have to mean less flavour. John Whaite cooks up winning recipes using just five ingredients.' The Telegraph 'this book is clever, fun and a winner' Waitrose Weekend 'really is what it says on the tin [...] simple plates of food cooked in no time, with very little fuss. This is simple cooking at its best.' --Aldo Zilli, Daily Express

    'A must-have book if you're looking for easy meals with minimal ingredients.' --BBC Easy Cook
