'Ireland's answer to Delia and Nigella' Sunday Telegraph Stella magazine
Cooking using just a single pot is liberating, satisfyingly efficient and relatively inexpensive. There's less juggling of different elements, no complicated techniques, little space required and less washing up to do. What's not to like? You can cook in one pot for one person or one hundred - all you have to do is scale up or down ingredients - perfect for solo cooks, families and anyone wanting to rustle up a feast for friends.
