Want to give your cooking a splash of finesse without the fuss? Peter Gordon’s new book Peter Gordon Everyday ($38; Jacqui Small) has the answer. Whether you’ve invited friends over for dinner or you’re rustling up a meal for the family, Gordon the leading light of East-West fusion cookery -has an exciting but straightforward recipe to fit the bill. ‘In this book, I demonstrate how to create fusion-style food at home,’ says Gordon. Using only supermarket ingredients, he guides you through 170 recipes, all with innovative flavors and textures. ‘The recipes are tasty and daring, yet simple and straightforward,’ he says. ‘From breakfast through to a fancy dinner party, I guarantee you don’t need to be a chef to make them.’

The chef is so convinced his recipes are accessible for even the most amateur cook that he chose to cook all the recipes to be photographed for the book in his own kitchen. ‘I cook all the food for the photos in my books at home -it’s much more relaxing than in a studio,’ he says.

Fusion cooking is based on the philosophy that any ingredient, no matter what part of the world it originates from, can be cooked together and enjoyed. With this in mind, there’s no reason you can’t use a Malaysian ingredient in a Yorkshire dish or vice versa. As a self-confessed magpie when it comes to cooking, Gordon explains that fusion cooking refuses to adhere to politically or geographically drawn borders -taste is paramount.

Influenced by his travels around the world and having written seven cookbooks, Gordon really is the master of fusion cuisine. His restaurants in London (The Providers and Tapa Room and Kopapa) all produce food in his eclectic style. Become the master of your own kitchen with these three intriguing

Quick tip ‘Having a few pestos is a good thing. A slightly runny one is great drizzled over grilled meat or fish, and a thicker one is good mashed into potatoes,’
