Description

Take the stress out of your day and get excited about dinner again--with a little help from the Dinner Ladies. The evening, when time and patience are at their shortest, can be the worst part of the day to have to throw a meal together.

The solution is a repertoire of reliable dinners made ahead of time and are already stocked in the fridge or freezer. It might be on the weekend, it could be late at night or in the morning when the baby’s asleep.

The Dinner Ladies contains 170 recipes to cook now and eat later. Crowd-pleasing favorites made from real ingredients, like spiced slow-cooked lamb shanks, or Madras beef curry; veggie-focused 'thinner dinners' like chickpea burgers or spinach filo pie; and desserts like apricot, raspberry, and coconut crumble or vanilla-scented rice pudding.

The author

The Dinner Ladies are Sophie Gilliatt and Katherine Westwood. They got together at the school gate in 2007 and came up with the idea of preparing dinners for time-poor friends so that they would always have good homemade food in their fridges and freezers. What started as a back shed project has now grown to a fleet of delivery trucks dropping off many hundreds of delicious home-cooked meals to hungry households every day.

Between them, the Dinner Ladies have seven children and two husbands of varying sizes, appetites and degrees of fussiness. There's not much they don't know about pleasing a tricky crowd.
