Based on Karen's phenomenally popular column in Sunday Life magazine, this collection of 150 recipes, beautifully photographed by Earl Carter, offers the inspiration needed to turn the evening meal into a special occasion, every night of the week.

Karen loves cooking traditional food - be it Mediterranean, Middle Eastern or comforting English baking - but adds something extra to make it look and taste special: kibbeh, normally made with lamb, is a revelation when ocean trout is used instead; a dollop of smoky eggplant completely transforms a piece of chargrilled tuna; and a classic cheesecake becomes an elegant dessert when paired with a spoonful of wine-soaked berries.
