Do you return home from work and loathe the thought of what to make for dinner? Do you drag yourself to the kitchen to throw a lunchbox together? Domestic drudgery is now a thing of the past! South African household name and TV personality, Sharon Glass, returns with another to-die-for cookbook – Food in a Flash.

Sharon emphasises that cooking is not just about buying ingredients, turning on the stove and following the method, but about how to transform ingredients into magnificent meals. “I hope as you become more confident with cooking, you remodel my recipes as your own and let your own character shine through in your dishes,” adds Sharon.

In a society where food is such an important part of our culture, it’s equally important that we eat well – not just tasty food, but nutritious food too. And since every minute counts, you needn’t fret – the preparation time and cooking time for each recipe makes forward planning easy. Each recipe contains information and advice for the health conscious. The personal anecdotes make her book both informative and engaging.

The inclusion of a Kids’ food section addresses the often neglected area of cooking for kids. No more peanut-butter-and-jam sandwiches – Sharon gives innovative ideas for kid’s meals such as “Funky burgers” and “Pizza spirals” and even “Banana coconut cakes”. She shows that it is actually possible to enjoy preparing your children’s meals and watching their joy when they taste your scrumptious creations.

As well as fabulous recipes, Sharon gives must-have tips on how to cook perfect fish, how not to dry out chicken, and what’s best to use when it comes to sauces, stocks, oils and seasoning.
