I have recently had a book published for Kindle (currently only available on Amazon until 2nd October). It is a cookery book, primarily aimed at beginners, but it could also be used by anyone who enjoys cooking and creating good, wholesome family meals.
Tried & Tested – 101 Recipes contains recipes covering soups, poultry, meats, fish, vegetarian, pasta & rice, potatoes, vegetables, dressings, sauces & marinades, desserts, baking and sweet things. I have personally tried, tested and modified each recipe until it works easily, giving excellent results. I have worked in the catering industry for many years running restaurants in north-west England and Jersey (which is renowned for fine dining).

On 22nd July my book was no 12 in the top 20 Amazon Bestsellers for Food & Drink> Quick & Easy.
