19 December 2017

Who's the author? Melissa Hemsley is one half of Hemsley + Hemsley, the sister act behind two of our favourite cookbooks, The Art of Eating Well and Good + Simple. 

What's it about? Eat Happy is Melissa's first solo cookbook with a focus on accessible and easy food that makes you feel great. Featuring 120 recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less, Melissa's love of bold, bright flavours and ingredients that do you good is evident throughout. Plus, with handy tips for using up leftovers, Eat Happy makes for a brilliant kitchen companion for busy and budget-conscious cooks.

Recipes we love: Chinese Fried Quinoa with Spicy Garlic Sesame Oil, Monday Miso Ramen Noodle Soup and Little Chocolate Pots.

Perfect for: Hemsley + Hemsley fans keen to try out Melissa's most laid-back recipes yet. Time poor and budget conscious cooks who want their meals to be nutrition-packed and delicious but with miminal fuss and time in the kitchen.
