Shortlisted as the Irish Cookbook of the Year at the 2013 Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards

Everybody loves the weekend. It's time to kick off your shoes, let your hair down and enjoy the good things in life: friends, family - and good food.

In her fantastic new book, award-winning Catherine Fulvio celebrates the relaxed and easy vibe of the weekend with 100 new recipes to take you from Friday to Sunday in style. From Friday night curry to Saturday brunch, from rainy-day baking, to Sunday's family dinner.

If weekday breakfasts consist of a quick bowl of cereal before running out the door, now's the time for Chocolate French Toast with Hazelnuts and Raspberries. If mid-week meals consist of express rice and fast food, why not host a Tapas night and make Garlic Artichokes and Mushrooms, Roasted Grapes with Jamon Serrano and Patatas Bravas? If you depend on a vending machine for a weekday snack, how about an afternoon of baking - try the Chocolate and Cardamom Brioche Buns or Orange and Almond Polenta Squares.

So forget about work. Forget about express meals. Close the door, turn the music on, fire up the cooker - it's the weekend

'The Weekend Chef brings a more relaxed attitude to cooking at the weekend, with easily prepared meals in abundance. '

Hotel and Restaurant Review

Catherine Fulvio is the proprietor of the Ballyknocken House Cookery School, Co Wicklow and one of Ireland's top television culinary stars. Her previous books Catherine's Italian Kitchen, Catherine's Family Kitchen and Eat Like an Italian were all bestsellers. Eat Like an Italian was winner of the Irish Cookbook of the Year at the 2012 Bord Gais Energy Irish Book Awards. Born and raised in Ireland and married to an Italian, Catherine's books always reflect this match-made-in-heaven by using easily-accessible Irish ingredients assembled with Italian flair. This book is inspired by one of Catherine's most popular courses at Ballyknocken, The Weekend Chef.
