As a chef I talk to people about food every day – in person, on Instagram and even in the street. They give me recipes, tell me their food preferences and where to buy the greatest ingredients. But the number-one topic is time – more specifically, how little they have, and how that affects what they cook and when they cook it.

I feel so passionate about helping all of us to cook more regularly. It improves everything in our lives – physical and mental wellbeing. No matter how hard my day is, I give myself a little gift of a home-cooked meal at the end, because it will always make me feel better.

So I decided to write a book which is focused on time. In Minutes is packed with 80 flavourful, speedy recipes that you can cook from start to finish in 10, 20 or 30 minutes, from creamy forest pasta to nutty chicken or Singaporean pepper prawns. Soon they’ll be your weekly staples.

I hope you enjoy the recipes and that they make your daily cooking more delicious, fun and easy. Just make sure to pop on your favourite disco tunes and have fun while you’re cooking!
