In the Mood for Food

Our moods change as quickly as the weather and it’s amazing how they dictate our day and what we fancy eating. It is certainly worth taking care of our moods and pampering them with delicious food. This book will help you do exactly that. It is set out into what I consider six influential moods (Healthy, Naughty but Nice, Comfort, Lazy, Extravagant and Romantic) with each chapter packed full of straightforward, yet inspirational recipes.

The Gorgeous Kitchen Cookbook

As part of Heathrow Terminal 2’s refurbishment in 2014, Jo Pratt and three other female chefs, Gee Charman, Caroline Artiss and Sophie Michell have collaborated to create and design something extra special for The Queen’s Terminal – The Gorgeous Kitchen Restaurant. The restaurant is a fusion in style, design and great food, using fresh seasonal produce, lovingly prepared by people who are as passionate about food. In creating this book, the chefs have lent their expertise, experience and personalities to create over eighty unique recipes. These are recipes you can use from breakfast to dinner, for everyday or special occasions as well as a few cheeky cocktail ideas for those summer parties! The recipes are designed to celebrate beautiful, simple but full- flavoured ingredients – gorgeous dishes such as Blueberry French toast, Slow-roasted Pork belly with sweet and sour apples and potato puree, White Chocolate and Peach Cheesecakes with Macadamia Nut Brittle.

The Nation’s Favourite Food

The nation voted for their favourite dishes, in various categories such as comfort food, breakfasts, dinner, afternoon tea and festive food. I had the fabulous job of writing the recipes for the book and accompanying BBC television series. There are plenty of modern twists on old favourites such as spaghetti Bolognese, strawberries and cream, roast beef with Yorkshire puddings and the full English plus straightforward recipes for some classics including crumpets, hot cross buns and Christmas pudding.
