John won the third series of The Great British Bake Off in 2012. He now writes for The Telegraph, is a resident chef on Lorraine, is a presenter and judge on the daytime cookery competition show The Chopping Block and has opened his own cookery school.

Perfect Plates In 5 Ingredients is divided into Weekend Morning Plates for breakfasts and brunches, Hearty Plates of comfort food, Everyday Plates for easy week-night suppers, Worth the Wait Plates for slow cooking, Posh Plates for easy, impressive dishes, Many Plates for sharing and finally Sweet Plates for simple cakes and sweet treats. Each recipe can be created using only 5 ingredients, excluding store cupboard essentials such as oil, salt and pepper.

I absolutely love the simplicity of these recipes, making it easy enough for a novice cook like me to create impressive dishes. My favourite recipe in the book is the chocolate cake with a secret ingredient, oh my goodness, it is amazing!

  1. I have lots of favourite recipes but the one I am loving right now in my tuna steak in a garlic and herb marinade recipe!

  2. Love my homemade tuna pasta bake bologna and thick vegetables soups -always having people popping in and all these are freezeable so no one ever goes hungry

  3. I love making pavlova, because I have a wonderful foolproof recipe, so it always works!!

  4. It’s probably pasta dishes as I like to experiment with different oils, creams and toppings plus it gives me an excuse to use my homegrown herbs. x

  5. Ooooooooooo I love this and a girl can never have to many shoes, bags or cook books going to make sure I’m in it cos I want to win it !!!


  6. Pasta Arrabiata and funnily enough that uses very few ingrediants too. Chopped Tomatoes, Pasta, Bacon, Chilli Flakes and Italian dried herbs!

  7. I don’t cook now, pesky MS, but I love eating (does this count?) my partner’s Yorkshire puddings, made as her great uncle showed her.

  8. I love a good mixture of things but Cottage pie is a favourite, I absolutely love recipe books to help me on my way!

  9. Probably at the moment my favourite thing to make is dirty pasta, which is a beef stew and then the cooked pasta is coated at the end. yum

  10. I always enjoy making my home made “tattie soup” it’s my mother recipe and reminds me of her and my childhood. Thanks

  11. I love making a 5-Bean Veggie Chilli, Chinese-Style Chicken in Black Bean Sauce Stir Fry and I love baking Devil’s Food Cake!
