Book blurb Solo Food
“Solo Food is the first cookbook that celebrates cooking for yourself. Many people love to spend hours in the kitchen for their family or friends, but eat a pizza in front of the TV if they’re alone. Janneke Vreugdenhil shows that cooking without the other mouths to feed can be extremely satisfying. You don’t need to take anyone else’s tastes into account; you and you alone know exactly how long you like your steak to be cooked and you can go ahead and enjoy that delicious pasta with prawns and smoked whiskey tomato sauce. Solo Food is an exciting and personal, inspirational cookbook with 72 recipes that you’ll love putting on the table.”
“This book beautifully celebrates cooking for one.”
“[Janneke’s] healthy and interesting recipes … and honest, funny writing make this a brilliant book for anyone cooking for one.”
BBC GOOD FOOD
