In the Mood for Food

Jo Pratt

What do you want to eat right here, right now? What we cook and eat is as much dictated by our moods as what we wear and what we do so Jo Pratt has written an ingenious book that asks you how you feel before suggesting what sort of food you might fancy. Are you feeling lazy? Then the chapter of convenient, super-quick and easy recipes will hit the spot. Or is romance in the air? Here are heavenly recipes for every romantic occasion from the first date to the bedroom . . . How about extravagant? Jo's menu suggestions will dazzle your guests and satisfy the exhibitionist in you. There are also chapters for naughty, indulgent moods and purer, healthier ones guaranteeing the right food at the right time and making sure you always get a little of what you fancy...

Named as one of Waterstone’s Authors for the Future, Jo's quirky, no-fuss recipe ideas and beautiful food styling regularly appear in various magazines such as Olive and BBC Good Food Magazine and from Autumn 2007 you can read her monthly column in Glamour. Jo is also an increasingly familiar face on our TV screens, from regular appearances on ITV’s Saturday Cooks, Daily Cooks and Soapstar Superchef to UKTV’s Market Kitchen, Great Food Live and Sky One’s Taste.
Jo’s experience comes from working with big name chefs such as Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and John Torode on everything from live cookery demonstrations to TV programmes such as Hell’s Kitchen. However, her biggest fan (I’m sure he’ll agree) must be Gary Rhodes. Over the last ten years Jo has worked on practically all Gary’s books and TV programmes (and they remain good friends!).
Jo’s unique style comes from her ability to adapt what she’s learnt working alongside Michelin-starred chefs to create stylish recipes that we can all enjoy everyday – whatever our ability.
