From breakfast to dessert, with everything in between, Australia's most popular TV chef Ed Halmagyi tames wild flavors in no time at all, with simple yet elegant recipes that are guaranteed to work first time, every time. Our tastes change from day-to-day, and so does the amount of time we have available to cook. But for most of us, an hour's the limit. So Ed has created a delicious range of recipes here: some take five minutes, some take 15 minutes, and some even take a little longer. But none take longer than an hour from start to serve. Whether it is an Omelette with Attitude for breakfast, Kung Pao chicken for the family dinner, or a Mud Crab Bolognese for the one you love, you'll find plenty of recipes to fall in love with in An Hour's the Limit. Complete with charming illustrations from one of Australia's most talented young artists, this is the cookbook you'll turn to time and time again for ideas, inspiration and information. Recipes include Nutella French Toast with Berry-Cherry Compote; Fusilli with Bacon, Cabbage and Ricotta Saltata; Roast Scotch Fillet with Ajo Blanco and Beetroot Pillars; Mushroom Risotto; and Cinnamon Tea Cake.
