Annette Yates' book is designed for the person who has to prepare individual meals for whatever reason
The microwave has many advantages over conventional cooking: it's quicker, more economical, cleaner and easier. Microwave ovens take up very little space. They produce fewer cooking smells and less steam, and kitchen/cooking areas remain cool.
Annette Yates' book is designed specifically for the person who lives alone, or who has to prepare individual meals for some other reason: perhaps members of the family need to eat at different times or have conflicting tastes and preferences, or perhaps someone is on a special diet which requires food to be cooked separately.
Included are recipes for: breakfasts; soups, starters and sauces; fish, meat, poultry, vegetable, cheese, egg and pasta dishes; and desserts - PLUS an indispensable cooking guide which explains how to adapt family recipe instructions to the smaller amounts needed for a single portion.
Annette Yates is the author of numerous Right Way bestsellers, including Microwave Cooking Properly Explained, Microwave Cooking Times at a Glance, Microwave Recipes for One, Fresh Bread in the Morning from Your Bread Machine, Steaming - with Recipes, Slow Cooking: Best New Recipes, The Blender Book, Super Soups & Sauces and Ice Cream Made Easy.
