Raymond Blanc – Simply Raymond: Recipes from Home – INCLUDING RECIPES FROM THE ITV SERIES

This book is a heartfelt tribute to her, created with passion and thoughtfulness. It is also a testament to the great pleasure derived from stepping into a kitchen, simply to cook simply for others. Something he has done all of his life.

Also Mimi Spencer’s take on the new diet:  Mimi Spencer: The idea of the Fast Diet is that a food-free window twice a week is incredibly good for you

Dr Mosley in 2012 was slightly overweight and perhaps pre disposed to have diabetes. He decided to search for a solution – a diet – that would help remove this unhealthy trend in his lifestyle. Was it possible to address these serious health issues with changes to diet?

He is a medical journalist and so was able to speak with and interview those scientists and nutrition experts that led to studying the latest research. He put his conclusions to the test on himself in a Horizon program that tried out the theory on fasting. This was our introduction to the concept and benefits of intermittent fasting.

The Mail on Sunday has a four page section with a guide to the theory behind the Fast Diet, how to go about trying the diet and recipes from the new cookbook. See The amazing slimming book every paper wanted

  • Bouillabaisse
