While many cookbooks and cooking shows would have us think that cooking dinner involves long lists of ingredients and several hours of commitment in the kitchen, Sue Quinn proves that it really doesn't have to be that way. Here's how to prepare wonderful food quickly and easily with a handful of well-chosen ingredients. Tip One: Keep your pantry stocked with fresh pasta, jars of marinated vegetables, frozen fruit, punchy sauces, cans of passatta and excellent stock cubes or bouillon powders - all great short-cut ingredients that mean you can cook speedily without compromising on flavour. Tip Two: assemble all your ingredients and cooking utensils before you start cooking. There are 160 recipes all up, from plates to share and light bites, salads and soups, to pasta dishes, meat, poultry and seafood dishes and desserts.
