What’s For Dinner? In One Pot: About the Book

After my first book of super speedy recipes, this book tackles that overwhelm we all feel at dinner time with too many pans to juggle. Simplifying dinner, and giving you some evening calm back.

Here’s what you need to know about the book:

⭐️ Complete meals, all cooked in one pot

⭐️ No complicated ingredients, affordable and family friendly.

⭐️ 10 weeks of meal plans with complete shopping lists.

Every recipe is cooked in one of 3 pots:

➡️ A slow cooker

➡️ A baking sheet

➡️ A shallow saucepan (like this)

Why pre-order now?!

The book will be released on 28th September 2023, here’s why it’s a good idea to order now:

⭐️ Get it on the day of release, earlier than anyone who hasn’t pre-ordered AND no need to remember to buy then.

⭐️On Amazon you automatically pay the lowest price the book is listed at before release (and you don’t actually pay until the book is sent). Woohoo!

⭐️ Pre-orders make a massive difference to the success of a book (as book shops stock on the basis of this – who knew) so personally, THANK YOU for helping this book grow ❤️ I’m SO grateful. ❤️

A Note on What “One Pot” means to me

Confession, I get very irritated when chefs write about “one pot” recipes which are not a complete meal. I tried to stick to the following in this book:

⭐️ Each dinner is a complete meal, that uses only one cooking dish.

⭐️ Wherever possible, cook protein, carbs and vegetables all in the same pan.

⭐️ If carbs and vegetables aren’t included in the main cooking dish, you should be able to serve with a no-cook side dish (a salad, a bread or, at a push, microwaveable rice!).

It felt important to me that in the cases where vegetables didn’t work in the main dish for example (Slow Cooker Braised Beef Tacos and Slow Cooker Sticky Ginger Pulled Ham I’m looking at you) we came up with a very quick side dish to serve with them that didn’t need an additional cooking pot.

So, in each weekly meal plan, you’ll find two recipes that offer a no-cook side dish alongside the main.

How many recipes did you test for the book?

The book includes 100 brand new recipes, each of those was tested at least 5 times. Then cooked again for the book photography.

As always, were a handful of recipes that were tested more than 10 times each (One Pan Pancakes and Dutch Baby I AM LOOKING AT YOU) where I just knew they could be SO GOOD but they took a while to get there.

At a guess, between me, Anna, Debbie, Miranda, Hattie (my step-daughter) and our food stylist Pippa probably 650 dishes have been cooked for What’s for Dinner? All so we can be sure that they really do work for you!

Who eats all of the food from the testing?!

Friends or neighbours, sometimes us for dinner, sometimes it goes into the freezer for another day, the team shooting the book photos eat what they can for lunch, and if it really didn’t go well; Archie the dog.. 🐶 Basically, if we are in a busy testing time and you know any or us and bump into us, you’re likely to come away with a food parcel!

I hope you are going to love this book as much as I’ve loved writing it for you.

Thanks as always for all of your support, for reading my recipes, leaving comments, telling me how much they’ve helped you and recommending my recipes to your friends.

It’s because of you that this book has been written and I really hope I’ve done you proud. ❤️
