Advent Competition – WIN 2 Cookbooks by Jenny Chandler


Enter today’s competition to win 2 cookbooks by Jenny Chandler: Pulse and Cool Kids Cook.

Jenny Chandler is a British chef, championing good and simple food. The “Bean Queen”  from Borough Market was appointed last May  as The United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation Special Ambassador for The Year of Pulses.

Jenny Chandler trained at Leith’s School of Food and Wine before embarking upon a decade of cooking and travel. During this time she lived and travelled extensively in Europe, the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Pacific and Indian Oceans, giving her opportunity to gather recipes, techniques and experiences from all over the world.

Truly modern recipes for beans, chickpeas and lentils to tempt meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.

At last pulses are ditching their ‘hippie’ label and are back in vogue. Economical and healthy, pulses offer a truly enormous variety of options for the modern cook, and this exhaustive volume covers all you need to know to buy, prepare, store and cook them.

Jenny Chandler has collected a mouth-watering range of recipes that are international in flavour and provides plenty of tips for everyday catering, from baby food, simple starters, soups and desserts to gourmet dinners. She aims to demystify all the soaking and cooking conundrums – legumes really are a cinch to cook – and hopefully inspire you to get cooking and leave you, quite literally, full of beans!


Cooking is one of the most useful, rewarding and fun things children will ever learn to do. Whether they hope to become a rocket scientist, play international football, breed ferrets or win The X Factor, one thing’s for sure, they will always have to eat.

Ideal for children aged 7 upwards; this book empowers kids to put a great supper on the table (with a bit of help from a grown up) and gives them a few exotic dishes for showing off. Filled with real dishes, not children’s food, recipes include tasty, healthy breakfasts to kick start your day. Cool salads that are perfect for picnics and packed lunches. Noodles, chowders, dals and stir-fries that are made to be slurped from the bowl. Hot favourites like Sticky Chicken Wings, Simple Meatballs and ‘Fish en Papillote’ make suppers more interesting. And not forgetting sweet and savoury treats from Banana Bread, Cheesy Courgette and Sweetcorn Muffins to Grilled Fruit Skewers and Fruity Crumbles. With easy-to-follow, step-by-step photography, fun food facts and lessons in kitchen safety, this is the book to get kids cooking properly and eating healthily.
