What do you do when you’re a busy working mother with four children, two of them Irish twins still under the age of four? Pen a cook book of course.
The best thing about Poppy Fraser’s new family cooking bible 10 Minute Suppers for Children is that it has been devised by someone who understands – 10 minutes needs to mean 10 minutes.
Add to that her passion for natural, seasonal, unprocessed ingredients and food that is high on flavour with minimum fuss and you have a brand new kitchen stalwart.
Poppy, who lives in Dorset with her sculptor husband Alexander Macdonald-Buchanan, started compiling her own favourite recipes and those of her friends when she was four months pregnant with her fourth child Jacobi, born just 11 months after Constance, 3. With two elder sons – Lorcan 10 and Bertie 8 – also in the mix she knew supper time was going to be hectic.
10 Minute Suppers for Children is a genuine life saver – delicious, healthy eating which takes no time at all to whip up.
Recipes like chilli chicken, tuna bolognese, salmon noodles in miso, raw banana flapjack and raw pea and mint soup will become instant favourites and not just with the kids.
