Overview

Living on one's own is just as likely to be a matter of choice as not and the numbers adopting this lifestyle are increasing all the time. Yet the joys of cooking for one - it takes less time, washing up is minimal, and you can indulge yourself with cuts such as fillet steak which for larger numbers would be prohibitively expensive - are frequently overlooked. The 150 specially devised recipes included here, such as Chicken Milanese, Salt and Pepper Prawns, Baby Pumpkin Gratin and Baked Eggs with Spinach, focus on what the single person really wants to eat - quick and easy last-minute suppers and mid-week treats to lazy weekend meals - not cut-down recipes for four. So whether you are a career girl, a student, an empty-nester or merely a man left to his own devices for a few days, this book will prove invaluable.

    I was very upset when I got to reading some of these recipes. The name of the book is wrong it should not be recipes for one. This book had very few recipes for one and even had recipes for six and eight. So if your really wanting a recipe book that can help you create one person meals don't use this one!

    Check it out if you're European.

    This cookbook was recommended to me, and the recipes seem easy and interesting, but unfortunately, the directions are written in grams and liters! I thus had to return it, or I would have had to do the math calculations for each and every recipe.
