Everybody Everyday is divided into three parts: basic main ingredients, essentials for the fridge and slow-cooked dishes. Every part is a selection of ‘hero’ recipes, each followed by six delicious variations. So, once you know how to bake salmon fillets, it’s a short step to baked salmon with fennel, olives warm balsamic and tomato dressing or five other options. Homemade basil pesto can become mozzarella and pesto meatballs with roast garlic, tomato and peppers; beef rump with pesto, grainy mustard, beetroot and pak-choi; no sweat pesto risotto with sautéed vegetables and sunblush tomatoes; spinach, crème fraiche, penne, parmesan and pesto bake; lamb shoulder chops with fried new potatoes, cherry tomatoes, olives and pesto; braised sea bass fillets with beans, peas and pesto
With 126 adaptable recipes, this really is a book for everybody who wants to cook delicious food everyday – be they young, old, single, part of a large family, new to cooking or an old hand.

Next I have my eye on Richly Braised lentils, and then one of the six belly pork recipes - probably Roast belly pork with vegetables and noodles.
