'Full of recipes you want to cook' - Diana Henry 'Not only a collection of fabulous recipes but an inspiring guide to flavours and ingredients and how they work together' - Nigella Lawson This is a cookbook for people who are looking for inspiration rather than instruction; one that will make you look at familiar ingredients in a new light, and welcome new ones with open arms.

In the Blue Cheese chapter, a Roquefort and honey cheesecake with walnut and pear; in Caramel, roast duck with miso caramel and in Rhubarb, rhubarb gin granita. Yet there are also more straightforward dishes, no less original or delicious: beetroot noodles with goat's cheese, toasted walnuts and baby kale; chorizo baked potatoes with avocado crema; slow roast tomato pasta with lemon salt, ricotta and basil. And there are many more playful takes on favourite dishes: salted peanut caramel crispy cakes, aloo tikki scotch eggs, jelly cherry jubilee, buttermilk onion rings. This is a book to shake you out of your recipe rut and make you start to think about food, and cook it in an entirely new way.

Renee McGregor, performance and clinical dietitian I've just been reading your book again for the second time this week, aka The A-Z of Eating Disorders. It's truly an amazing book and its purpose is amazing and I'm just so happy someone has confronted these topics and can educate others because anorexia is such a complex illness which can be hard for 'outsiders' to understand.
