This book is all about creating beautiful and delicious food...without stress and without fuss. Marco Pierre White serves up more than 100 recipes and shows the home cook how to get big flavours from store-cupboard ingredients.The book has sections for starters, shellfish, fish, meat, poultry, desserts, and Marco uses bottles, jars and packets to make divine sauces, syrups and dressings. Olive oil, honey, mustard, soy sauce, vinegar, Hellmann's, Heinz and Knorr - they are all on the lists of ingredients here. And the three main ingredients of Marco Made Easy are: Simple, Fast and Fun. 'It'll take longer to wash the dishes,' he says, 'than it will to make them.'Tomato ketchup helps to make Salmon Ketchup; that bottle of Lea and Perrins brings life to the sauce for peppered steak; and beef casserole is transformed by a can (or two) of Guinness mixed with a carton of prune juice. Desserts, too, require little skill. Jamaican Mess, made with bananas, shop-bought custard and Carnation caramel sauce - is creamy, rich and swee. Who could say no? Beautiful photographs of each stunning dish enable the reader to copy the master chef¿s presentation: you don't need to be an artist. As Marco says of this revolutionary cook book, `It's for anyone who loves food but hates aggro'.'

The long-awaited autobiography of the archetypal kitchen bad boy - Marco Pierre White When Marco Pierre White's mother died when he was just six years old, it transformed his life. Soon, his father was urging him to earn his own keep and by sixteen he was working in his first restaurant. White went on to learn from some of the best chefs in the country, such as Albert Roux, Raymond Blanc and Pierre Koffmann. He survived the intense pressure of hundred-hour weeks in the heat of the kitchen, developed his own style, and then struck out on his own. At Harveys in Wandsworth, which he opened in 1987, he developed a reputation as a stunning cook and a rock 'n' roll sex god of the kitchen. But he was also a man who might throw you out of his restaurant, and his temper was legendary, as younger chefs such as Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal would find out when they worked for him. He eventually opened several more restaurants, won every honour going and then realised that it still wasn't enough. Here Marco takes the reader right into the heat of the kitchen with a sharp-edged wit and a sizzling pace that will fascinate anyone brave enough to open the pages of this book and enter his domain.
