THE FLEXIBLE FAMILY COOKBOOK

A cookbook to suit the whole family’s differing wants and needs, The Flexible Family Cookbook is full of simple and delicious recipes to keep the whole family happy.


Jo Pratt provides flexible adaptations for each recipe to account for allergies, intolerances and lifestyle choices. Traybakes and one-pot roasts make for easy and convenient time-savers, whilst scrumptious puds and simple bakes help get smaller hands involved in the cooking. Covering everything from gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free cooking and veganism, to suggestions for flavour and spice adjustments for younger or fussier palettes, this book will be a lifesaver in the kitchen and
a crowd-pleaser at the table.

From spiced poke to pea shoot and asparagus gnudi, the range of international recipes spans the globe and are all quick, simple, well-balanced and packed with protein. As well as easy meat and fish additions and hacks for each vegetarian recipe, this original cookbook shows you how to ace a handful of classic recipes, from the perfect roast chicken to the perfectly cooked fish fillet. For both health, eco and sustainability reasons, there has never been a better time to join the growing flexitarianism movement and expand your culinary skills.
