This is an exhilarating and practical cookbook for food with extra sparkle, full of bold, delectable and sometimes surprising recipes to create unforgettable meals. There are easy, interactive recipes for your guests to cook, dip or mix at the table – meals that turn a simple supper into a party. Stefan encourages the reader above all to have fun and enjoy playing with food. He combines unusual-sounding meals that he has invented or discovered on his culinary travels for the BBC, with simple classics that offer something magical. You can discover how to make Roast Chicken covered in real gold, Stuffed Courgette Flowers and Glow-in-the-dark Jelly, or host a Hammer and Crab party. The chapters include starters for communal dipping, feast main courses to get messy with and extra challenging dinners for the brave guest and ambitious cook. Complete with miscellaneous tips from how to cook pasta in a balloon to making live cress place names, Stefan's enthusiasm and fascination for unusual food is irresistible.
After many years working in film and TV, Stefan began presenting food programmes. He has since presented and co-written Full On Food for BBC2, Food Uncut for UKFood, Cooking in the Danger Zone for BBC2 and BBC4, Gastronuts, a children's programme for BBC1 and CBBC, and most recently Feasts on BBC4. Stefan's first book, Gastronaut: Adventures in Food for the Romantic, the Foolhardy and the Brave, was published in 2005. www.thegastronaut.com
