Chunky, bold, witty, clever, a little playful but eminently practical… we could be talking about Masterchef maestro Matt Preston himself. Instead, I’m talking about his bold new cookbook Fast, Fresh and Unbelievably Delicious (why use a one-word title when you can use half a dozen? that is so Matt). Matt’s cookbook is just like him – larger than life. Inspiring recipes, taste-tested on family and friends and perfect to share with family and friends. Shortcuts and clever tips give it an added dimension. I may have edited the manuscript (a pleasure to work with such a clever writer) but it’s Macmillan’s Plum publisher and team of designers plus food stylists and photographer Mark Roper who have turned it into the visual feast it is. Here’s the cover (I said it was bold). There’s even a ‘sealed section. It’s in bookshops now.
