Let cookbook author Alan Rosenthal guide you through a masterclass in elevating the classic, one-pot dish. Whether you’re cooking for friends and family or making meals for one, these recipes will practically serve themselves on busy weeknights, and can be easily frozen so you always have a hearty meal ready to go, all with very little washing up.
With Alan’s help and guidance, you’ll create a range of dishes, from Thai-style salmon, sweet potato and baby corn curry to spiced cauliflower and red lentil dal, all from his latest cookbook, Foolproof – One Pot.
Alan trained at Leiths before launching his own one-pot meal company, stewed! He first started selling his pots at farmers’ markets, before expanding to stock the shelves of Budgens, Harvey Nichols and a host of other national retailers.
