Eat Out, In

Eat Out, In with Just For One Or Two cookbook

Create restaurant-quality food at home with little effort

Stuck for a babysitter again? Create a fabulous date night at home where you can ‘eat out, in’. For a more rewarding and less costly night ‘out’ make restaurant-quality food at home with a just few choice ingredients and little effort.

With inspirational recipes, handy QR code shopping lists and easy-to-follow instructions cooking great food for two needn’t be arduous. In fact, quite the opposite, it can be a real pleasure.

You can rustle up Pan-Fried Sea Bass & Scallops in just 15 minutes, or for meat-lovers cook colourful Lamb with Pesto & Ratatouille or flavourful Stir-Fried Pork.

To finish bake creamy Apricots in Buttermilk Custard or imagine you’re dining in a Parisian café with Crêpes and Brandy Marmalade Sauce

These recipes have been specifically
written for two so there’s no need to
