BOOK REVIEW: Single Serve
By Penny Oliver, photography by Manja Wachsmuth (Penguin, RRP $40)

Presented as simple dishes, for the single person, Single Serve recipes double as meals for couples wanting something quick and delicious.

Divided into handy sections aptly named Easy Bites, Tasty Every Day, Vegetable Crunch and Sweet, Oliver and photographer Wachsmuth deliver an accessible cookbook with every-day ingredients thrown together in clever and surprising ways.

The recipes in the book are not the healthiest, best illustrated by the scrumptious Buttery Brussels Sprouts and Bacon - a dish I defy all those who despise brussels sprouts to try.

Healthy or not though, Single Serve dishes up some yummy meals.

They include the Chicken and Leek Pasta Bake and the Lemon Chicken and Potatoes in a Pan - which is practically a roast you can cook in the middle of the week.

The perfect cookbook for those wanting a bit of a change to their tiresome weekly menu or to those just stepping out on their own with only a few basic recipes on their table.
