Who’s the author? Rosie Sykes is a chef and food writer who has cooked in the kitchens of some of Britain’s most celebrated chefs. She headed up the critically acclaimed gastropub, The Sutton Arms in North London, which cemented her as one of the most exciting cooks in the country. Rosie is the author of The Kitchen Revolution, The Sunday Night Cook, and Roasting Pan Suppers, and regularly contributes to the Guardian.

What’s it about? More and more of us want to shop well, spend less and cook and eat sustainably. Every Last Bite offers recipes, tips, and practical advice for preparing fantastic food on a budget with minimal waste, energy, and resources.

A seasoned chef, Rosie knows how to get the most flavour and value out of ingredients. Across 70 recipes she shows you how to plan, prepare, and cook dishes with maximum taste and minimum cost. The chapters reflect the different things that we might want to cook, whether that’s something fast and filling, lighter dishes for everyday eating, or meals where the oven does the work. She also gives her immensely practical ‘blueprints for leftovers’, helping you to revolutionise the way you cook and keep your food waste bins as empty as possible. With recipes for everyday meals, ideas for entertaining, and those all-important sweet treats, Every Last Bite ensures you will get the most out of your fridge, store cupboard, and budget.

Recipes we love: Catalan-Style Beans with Chorizo, Fregola with Bacon and Peas, Tuna Tomato Lasagne, Chermoula Chicken, Crispy Five Spice Noodles, and Rhubarb and Ginger Crumb Pudding.

Perfect for: Fans of Rosie’s previous books, as well as busy home cooks who want clever ideas for delicious, budget-friendly meals.
