    Alex Mackay believes that cooking is an adventure and that good food should be for everyone. You don’t have to spend a fortune on hard-to-come-by ingredients or have an encyclopaedic knowledge of cooking methods to eat well and healthily. Alex knows that most of us shop in the supermarket and work from nine to five. The trick is to know a few basic recipes inside-out and to reinvent them so they never grow tired.

    Alex worked as a chef at Michelin-starred restaurants in France, Italy and the UK. Having run Raymond Blanc’s cookery school and founded the internationally acclaimed Baou d’Infer cookery school in Provence, he now teaches alongside Delia Smith. His first book Cooking in Provence was a winner at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. His latest book is Everbody Everyday (published by Bloomsbury, 2012 RRP 39.99). Alex lives near Oxford with his wife and two sons.
