Is it possible to make a delicious and interesting dinner without running to the store, when you’re pressed for time? Yes, John Whaite shows how. He creates brilliantly streamlined dishes with only the essentials in this celebration of good, honest food. Using just 5 ingredients (plus the essentials of butter, olive oil, salt, and pepper), this is casual cooking for all occasions. Recipes include Crashed Eggs for breakfast, comforting Chicken Pot Pies baked in mugs, Sweet Potato, Gruyère, and Pecan Gratin, Hummus and Pepper Flatbreads, Cidery Barbecue Ribs for sharing, and a Secret Ingredient Chocolate Cake. John’s departure from baking shows his striking talent as a cook with clever ideas that are practical and fun.
John Whaite won the third series of The Great British Bake Off. He studied at Le Cordon Bleu, though his love of food came from learning at his mother’s knee. Before turning to his true passion—cooking—John had a career in commercial banking, so he knows a thing or two about bringing economy to the kitchen. Today John runs his own cooking school John Whaite’s Kitchen, and he has appeared on NBC's Today Show and Hallmark Channel's Home & Family. This is his third cookbook. @JohnWhaiteBakes www.johnwhaite.com
