I love cookbooks that make life simpler. A recipe doesn’t have to be complicated to be good and Stuart O’Keeffe does a great job illustrating that in his book The Quick Six Fix.
Stuart O’Keeffe grew up in Ireland cooking alongside his mother and learning how to make fresh home-cooked meals made with more love than labor. By working efficiently, keeping the kitchen space clean and cooking with minimal yet flavorful ingredients, Stuart believes that anyone can make great meals fast—with just six key ingredients. A professional and celebrity chef, Stuart brings his philosophy to everyone’s kitchen in his first cookbook and includes helpful tips and reminders along the way. In THE QUICK SIX FIX, Stuart begins with the pantry essentials and tools readers will need to whip up a range of tasty dishes at a moment’s notice. Teaching readers how to make smart shortcuts, like pairing key store-bought items with homemade ingredients, Stuart demonstrates how to cut kitchen time, save money, and get out of the kitchen in thirty minutes or less.
Stuart believes that fewer ingredients afford higher quality. With an inventive menu and meal-planning sections filled with wholesome shareable dishes—plenty of vegetarian options too—plus more than seventy-five full color photos, THE QUICK SIX FIX is the must-have tool for creating easy-to-make, great-tasting dishes that are sure to wow the ones we love.
Preparing a meal doesn’t need to be difficult or require a lot of time, celebrity chef Stuart O’Keeffe insists. If you work efficiently while keeping your space clean and cook with minimal yet flavorful ingredients, you can get a great meal from stove to table fast. In The Quick Six Fix, he offers dozens of delicious recipes for breakfast, salads, soups, pasta, fish, chicken, pork, beef, sides, and desserts that will get you in and out of the kitchen in thirty minutes or less. Each requires no more than 6 key ingredients, 6 minutes of prep work, and 6 minutes of clean up.
Chef Stuart begins with the pantry essentials and tools you’ll need to whip up a diverse range of amazing dishes at a moment’s notice, such as his tasty culinary school favorites, Moules Frites and Pistachio Basil Buttered Crispy Salmon. Indulge in delights that pay homage to his native Ireland, including Bangers with a Melted Leek Mash and Cranberry Compote, Sweet Berries “Yorkshire Pudding,” and an Easter dinner favorite, Mustard Crusted Pork with Apple Cabbage Slaw. And savor delights like Mexican Street Corn and the “LA” Cheeseburger influenced by his adopted California home.
