Praise for Food Hacker

“With her new book, Channel Ten’s Good Chef Bad Chef host Rosie has found a way to solve the two main problems that have been preventing busy, everyday people (like me) from properly feeding themselves – the over complication of the subject and finding the time to make healthy recipes. Her book is packed with healthy tips and tricks you can actually use at home AND her book promotes ingredients you can easily source without making a trip to your local black market. If your goal for the second half of 2018 involves eating a healthier diet, this is the book for you.”


“I'm eternally grateful for Mansfield's single-serve meals designed with simplicity in mind. She's rightfully earned the nickname 'food hacker' with her admirable ability to strip complex recipes down to their bare essentials. With more than 90 inexpensive and straightforward recipes for kitchen novices, this playful cookbook offers fresh approaches to nutritious food prep.”

Herald Sun

“Rosie Mansfield’s Food Hacker is more than just another brightly coloured cookbook. It’s full of delicious family dinners designed for time-poor mums. [...] The best thing about Food Hacker is that it is full of tried and tested hacks that will actually make a difference to your life.”


“For anyone who has looked at a recipe book and said 'get real!'. The food is real – Mansfield is a nutritionist – but quick to put together with the minimum of equipment.”

Hobart Mercury

“Give takeaway the flick and embrace nutritionist Mansfield's hacks and hints for healthier fast food. Her recipes take less than an hour, are inexpensive, full of shortcuts and easy ingredients.”
