Eating Well Everyday is a re-release of Peter Gordon’s 2012 Cookbook Eating Well. This re-release is timely, because this excellent cookbook should be included in every legitimate cookbook collection. The recipes are easy-to-follow, and call for ingredients that are easy-to-find.

One thing about Peter Gordon as a chef is that he’s not at all pretentious, and some of his recipes even call for canned items such as baked beans and spaghetti. This trait is one that has made him beloved everywhere – not just New Zealand and the UK – he is one of the most recognized and loved chefs in the US, also. His down-to-earth style makes his recipes appealing to every cook from beginner to advanced.

Reading through the book, it will be difficult for anyone to find a recipe that isn’t appealing. There is something for everyone here, from quick and simple to a bit on the gourmet side. The recipes are adaptable to the organic ingredients found at specialty shops and farmer’s markets, but can also be made with ingredients from the grocery store.

Favorite dishes that are up for repeats are Prawn, Watermelon and Lime Salad which is refreshing, lower calorie, and just plain good, Chicken Breast en Papillote with Cherry Tomatoes and Rosemary using ingredients from our summer garden, Chicken and Peanut Coconut Curry, Baked Fish on Tomato Ginger Salad, and Roast Cauliflower and Olives (which is absolutely amazing). No need to skip dessert – Gordon has included plenty to choose from such as Chocolate Mocha Pots with Cinnamon Shortbread, and Ginger Melting Moments.

There are beautiful photographs of most of the dishes, which, of course makes it even harder to decide what to make. This book alone will keep most of us cooking good, healthy dishes for months. Highly recommended, this is one to purchase for yourself and also for gifts.
