Tom Kerridge’s Fresh Start by Tom Kerridge

In Fresh Start, Kerridge turns his attention to our everyday household meals, and tackles our reliance upon convenience food, showing readers how to cook delicious meals from basic ingredients, applying his “tricks of the trade to the home kitchen”.

Kerridge said: “I used to eat convenience food myself, then I made a decision to change the way I ate for the sake of my weight and health. Ready meals and takeaways are simple and quick but living off processed food comes at a cost.”

Since changing his own eating habits Kerridge has lost 12 stone and become a father. “Finding the time to eat proper, homemade food together as a family is one of life’s biggest pleasures. I want to help people to discover this for themselves and reap the rewards. The aim of my new book, Fresh Start, is to build confidence around cooking in everyone who has forgotten how to cook, never tried – or has just fallen into the busy life trap. I will provide you with plenty of recipes and ideas to take control of your kitchen and of what you eat – and to kick start a newfound love of home-made food.”

“With 100 fantastic recipes that the whole household can enjoy, the book will include healthier, home-made versions of popular fast food and ready meals which will taste better than the originals; mid-week suppers that take no time to rustle up; batch cooking to last you through the week; and proper feasts for the weekend. What’s guaranteed is that all the food will taste amazing,” said the publisher.
