My first book, and now in its 42nd printing. Real Fast Food was conceived as nothing more than a little book of ideas for making yourself something nice to eat when you come in from work. It has sold over a million copies and, though one or two of the recipes seem a bit old fashioned now, people constantly tell me how useful they find it. Recently re-set and with a new cover by Alice Tait it seems to have become a much-loved classic.
