It’s been almost a month since the first official launch date for 5 Ingredients 10 Minutes. So today I wanted to share with you some of the lovely things that have been said about the book in the press and on the interweb.
Some Shameless Self-Promotion
“This nimble little book fulfils the promise of its irresistible title by being modest in ambition and realistic in execution. No all-singing, all-dancing three-course dinners here, but a collection of simple dishes containing no more than five ingredients which can be on the table in less time than it takes to heat up a ready-meal.”
Daily Mail Online – Food Book of the Week
“When we find a new one [cookbook] containing several recipes that we might like to attempt, using ingredients that are available on the local high street… well, it’s a cause for major celebration in our lives. And that is what is great about 5 Ingredients, 10 Minutes. Of course, the basic premise is a no-brainer when it comes to speed, but Clancy’s recipes are seductive in their own right.”
The Telegraph Cookbook of the Week
“Upon receiving a review copy last week, I found myself tagging a good two dozen I want to try stat. Spiced pita chips, broccoli and green curry soup, eggplant with chickpeas, chicken and lime noodles, lentil burger, salt and pepper squid, fresh pineapple with mint sugar… the list goes on.”
“For me the beauty of this book is that provided you have an even half-decently stocked larder and fridge, you will always be able to find something to make for dinner. Unlike many of the books which claim to feed you quickly, this one has an ingredients palette firmly populated with real foods rather than manufactured shortcuts.”
“Looking at her recipes, they all look appealing, they all look possible. Especially on a busy weeknight. Mostly what Jules’ cookbook reminded me of is that it’s not so hard.”
Tara Austen Weaver
“One of the main excuses people use today for not eating healthy is that they don’t have the time to cook healthy meals . . . this delightful cookery book blows that theory right out of the water . . . it is indeed possible to cook fresh and delicious food, using healthy fresh ingredients in not an awful lot of time!”
“One of these blogs was Stone Soup; a blog devoted to pared-back no-fuss cooking. The freshness and purity of the recipes was appealing, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that the photography is achingly gorgeous.”
“All the recipes are healthy and delicious and they all contain just five ingredients and can be made in about ten minutes. It might all be a bit gimmicky if the recipes weren’t so lovely and the kind of stuff you actually want to make.”
Daily Mail Online
“One of the refreshing things about this book is that it gets you thinking outside the meat/carb/veg box that a lot of us stick to (myself included). My teenagers are already strapping lads: very active, and still growing fast, so protein-rich dinners are a must. Jules provides these in a creative way, using lots of pulses, beans and lentils and, a new one for me, quinoa.”
“I see she has added veggie and vegan variations to her meat, poultry and fish recipes. Go girl!!!
Vegetarian Recipe Count 130 out of 134 recipes + meal ideas
Vegan Recipe Count 128 out of 134 recipes + meal ideas”
“Thanks so much for writing this book. I’ve already used it more than any of our other cookbooks. I’m generally pretty useless in the kitchen but you make everything so easy that even I can follow it. Also, I’m a vegetarian, so it’s such a great touch that you have veggie options for everything. I hope everyone else will like it as much as I do!”
Anna Mrowiec, Editorial Assistant
“5/5- As far as cookbooks go, I think 5 Ingredients, 10 Minutes is one of the best (And I have a lot of cookbooks) Jules Clancy has clearly written it with her readers in mind and she made me want to cook every single recipe she suggested.”
Atifa Jiwa, Blogger
“Wow!! My copy was received late last week and I spent most of the weekend tagging recipes to be tried ASAP. It is bigger than I expected and I know it will become my “most used” cookbook.”
