Ainsley Harriott is a best-selling BBC author and has sold over a million copies of his books to date. As fans of his Meals in Minutes titles already know, Ainsley is the chef who really understands the sort of food most of us want to make at home.

The book covers everything from planning what to eat for the week ahead and shopping, to timing a Sunday lunch and organising a supper party. Ainsley's Friends and Family Cookbook also contains step-by-step sequences to make particular techniques even more straightforward, lots of alternatives for everyday recipes like pizza and pasta and plenty of low-fat dishes if you are watching what you eat. The book contains over 230 brand new delicious recipes all using readily available ingredients, and with each one illustrated to encourage you to have a go, it is an essential addition to any kitchen shelf.
