The first cooking class conducted by Callum Hann and Themis Chryssidis at their cooking school, Sprout, was called 'Quick, Easy & Healthy', and to this day it remains their most popular course. Why? Because it is what so many of us want and, in fact, need: healthy food for ourselves and our families with minimal effort - good food, every day.
In Quick. Easy. Healthy. Callum and Themis present 70+ simple, quick and convenient recipes for fresh, healthy, flavoursome food. Dishes that use easy to find, seasonal ingredients, that represent good value for money, and that require minimal preparation and clean-up time. Every recipe includes a nutrition information panel so you know exactly what you're eating, and the book is divided into four seasonal chapters, each with a collection of recipes that use readily available ingredients that are in season and at their best, with suggestions for variations and substitute ingredients.
Quick. Easy. Healthy. is available in bookstores across Australia, New Zealand and the UK, and online.
