Editorial Reviews

Appl
The other night, when I had only a scant hour and a half to make dinner for myself; my wife, Betsey; and four guests, my eye fell upon New Food Fast by Donna Hay, an overachieving 30-year-old food writer with two best-sellers already to her credit. Something light, Betsey said. Mussels poached in a quick broth flavored with ginger and lemon grass, to which I added a chopped hot pepper and a bit of garlic, got us under way. Then came scallops of swordfish sautéed with sage leaves and a shower of grated lemon rind, with a side of very slowly roasted tomatoes with basil, served lukewarm, and kadota figs in vanilla and white port sauce.
My jury approved, and it gave the blue ribbon to the swordfish.

New Food Fast

Chicken Poached in Coconut Curry

Serves 4

Ingredients

3 tablespoons red curry paste*
6 chicken thigh fillets, halved
2 cups chopped orange sweet potato (kumara)
2 cups (16 fl oz) chicken stock
1 1/2 cups (12 fl oz) coconut milk
1/4 cup coriander (cilantro) leaves

Instructions

Place the curry paste in a frying pan over medium-high heat and cook for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant. Add the chicken and sweet potato to the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Add the stock and coconut milk and reduce the heat to low. Allow to simmer gently for 12 minutes or until the chicken and sweet potato are cooked. To serve, sprinkle the coriander over the chicken. Serve with steamed rice or steamed greens.

• Do not boil the coconut milk as it will separate -- the flavour will be the same but the appearance and texture of the sauce will be different.

I was really excited to get this book because it was organized by length of cooking time (10,20,30 minutes). However, since this wasn't apparently written by a US author, there were some translation issues. Once I figured out what the words meant, the recipes made more sense. But, for my realm of cooking, this book doesn't really add a whole lot to my aresenal of recipes. If you like arugala and proschutto ham, you'll love this book!

Great. Initially I was a little confused as to what 'rockets' are until I realised that it must be Australian for arugla. But once I figured it out I was good to go!

This cookbook is divided into 10 20 and 30 minute meals. The ideas are original and the outcomes fantastic. The best part is that Donna Hay uses really simple ingredients, and often you can make a recipe from what you have in your fridge (Really!) The number of steps are limited and if she thinks it will take 10 minutes - it does. Enjoy!
