Cooking for one is a satisfying and rewarding exercise; it needn't be a dull, repetitive cycle of the same meals and endless leftovers. Linda's imaginative and inspiring recipes are divided into 5 chapters: Quick Fixes, Almost Instant, A Little Ahead, Give It Time and Those Little Extras, making it simple to find the perfect meal for any occasion. Create speedy meals to throw together such as Brown Shrimp, Avocado, Soft Quail Eggs and Salad with Wasabi Soy Dressing, or roast a whole chicken that can then be used to create Chicken Noodle Soup, or a comforting Chicken Risotto with spinach. Linda also gives handy tips for spicing up otherwise lacklustre dishes, such as keeping your larder stocked with ready-to-use additions like Chilli and Garlic Oil, Toasted Pine Nuts or Crispy Shallots.

I'm slightly obsessed with this book. The food is elegant and cookable and could easily be upsized [...] This is food to nourish the soul as well as the body, [...] There's a commendable focus on avoiding waste, with no broccoli stalk or cauliflower leaf heading to the compost, and ideas for using remainders. [...] I may never heat up another can of baked beans. * New Zealand Herald * This book is full of warm hearted recipes - not only are they delicious, they are practical and achievable as well. Cooking for one has never seemed so enticing nor so easy! -- Skye Gyngell the singleton foodie, like the lone traveller, has had a pretty thin time of it, so the appearance of Solo is welcome. The food you might eat as you gather dust on the shelf has rocketed up market (quail stuffed with maftoul, figs based with honey and rose water). Roast chicken, tomatoes and beans is an everyday supper you can consume with pride, even if alone. You wouldn't necessarily want to share it...' * The Telegraph *
