For the past 5 years, Fay Ripley has been cooking for her growing family. Spurred on by the lack of inspiration out there, she has written this cookbook full of recipes for all the family. The vital ingredient is that you only need to cook one meal. She was fed up of having to cook separately for her 1-year-old, then having to knock up something for her 5-year-old and then, with the kids in bed, finally think about cooking something to enjoy with her husband. So she started working out meals that all of them could eat together - not separate ingredients, age dependent.
This book offers suggestions and inspiration to feed your family. It's there to get you in the swing so that you can find 15 minutes to knock up something that you're proud to see them eat. The idea is to cook food that you can remove your babies' and kids' portions from, before adding the more challenging ingredients for yourselves.
In Fay's words: 'I am living this. It's easy. I've kept it simple. Sometimes I get it wrong. Sometimes I have to throw pans away (multi-tasking can lead to burnt food). But the Italians do it. So why can't we?'

Without doubt one of the best female food writers around - witty, fun and great recipes that work! (Jamie Oliver)From the Back Cover:
'I'm living this. It's easy. I've kept it simple. Sometimes I get it wrong. Sometimes I have to throw pans away (multi-tasking can lead to burnt food). But it is always exciting to see my friends and family tucking into great grub that I have put together.'
Gone are the days of cooking a million and one things to keep the whole family happy - a recipe that allows you to portion off bits for your babies and kids before adding more complex ingredients for yourselves is surely the perfect compromise?
Fay's Family Food includes 100 delicious, quick to prepare and easy-to-follow recipes (each with its own gorgeous photo) that you'll look forward to making, even after a busy day at work. These recipes will slot smoothly into your everyday routine and leave you with more time to spend with your contented family - you'll wonder how you ever managed before!
Fay's attitude to food is both refreshing and inspirational - not only are her recipes to die for (go on, take a look inside...), but her comical family anecdotes put the fun back into cooking.
* who used to sneak down to the kitchen to gorge on cookies in the dead of night
* which recipe is equally as impressive as a push-up bra
* what you should be asking for on your Christmas list this year
* how to plan for a kids' party
* what the Holy Trinity is made from (see page xx)
* how to score most points for getting your little ones to eat healthy dishes for dinner without them realising
* how best to steal a lemon pot or a custard ice-lolly away from your child for you to enjoy without them knowing (let's be realistic - we all know it happens)
* how to get your family eating more fish
All this and more, just a few pages away...
