EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Jane Kennedy, author of One Dish: Two Ways, Meets The Incompetent Cook

Jane Kennedy made her name in comedy, so when she arrived at Booktopia to sign copies of her wonderful new cookbook One Dish: Two Ways, we were always going to try to impress her.

Did we? Probably not, but we had some fun trying. Take a look at possibly our most ridiculous video yet, as she meets Andrew Cattanach, The Incompetent Cook.

One Dish: Two Ways

by Jane Kennedy

The perfect collection of recipes that can be served simply for kids, then jazzed up for the adults with just a few additional ingredients – the first cookbook guaranteed to please the whole family.

Feeding a family. Every night. Is hard. Jane Kennedy knows because she cooks for seven people, seven days a week.

It’s not the cooking that’s hard, it’s thinking of a new dinner ideas EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. Grownups are easy. They love spices and chilli and garlic and onions and herbs and zest and can dress up a boring piece of chicken, fish or steak in a flash.

Kids…well. Most kids don’t like spices and chilli and herbs and zest. Green bits. Orange bits. And especially not hot bits.

So Jane set herself a challenge to find a way to keep everyone happy. A way that wouldn’t involve her having to eat ‘plain’ food just to keep the kids happy and didn’t require the kids to miraculously start loving spicy food. A way where one base meal could be jazzed up, or down, to suit all taste buds. One dish; two ways.

About the Author

Jane Kennedy began her career in the late 1980s alongside comedy team The D-Generation on a number one breakfast FM show and on television with The Late Show. She co-wrote, produced, directed and starred as the ruthless reporter Brooke Vandenberg in Frontline, a satire about the current affairs industry. Jane was also a co-producer of movies The Dish and the film recently voted Australia’s favourite of all time, The Castle. She continues to work behind the scenes at Working Dog as Casting Director on shows such as The Hollowmen and Thank God You’re Here. Jane lives in Melbourne, and clearly taking her commitment to comedy too far, she and partner Rob Sitch have five children.

Omg! I Can Eat That? Indulgent Food Minus the Boombah by Jane Kennedy

From Australia’s favourite new health-food chef comes the follow up to the bestselling Fabulous Food Minus the Boombah.

Jane Kennedy has long been known for her radio and television career. Something less known is that Jane loves food. Both cooking it and eating it. But Jane can’t eat any thing she wants to. That’s because she gets FAT. After having five children in six years and trying every fad diet known to man in an attempt to shift excess weight, Jane decided to take matters into her own hands.

A lifetime love of cooking, teamed with a refusal to give up the flavours of her favourite meals, led Jane to develop her own dishes that are delicious but also good for you.

In Jane’s second book, OMG! I can eat that?, she shares some of her favourite recipes, just without all the unwanted fat.

Chapters include Nibbles, Soups, Piemakins, Chicken & Duck, Beef, Lamb & Pork, Fish & Seafood, Comfort Classics, Vegetables and Dessert.

And these recipes aren’t your typical ‘diet’ recipes either, with delicious meals such as Chicken, Leek and Mushrooms ‘piemakins’ (pies in ramekins minus the pastry), Beef Bourguignon, Boombahfree burgers, and even sweet treats like Rhubarb and strawberry crumble, you’ll forget you’re even eating food minus the boombah!

About Jane Kennedy’s Fabulous Food Minus the Boombah:

In Fabulous Food Minus the Boombah, she shares the recipes that allowed her to lose weight and feel fantastic: meals for every day in the home, for entertaining, for nights when you couldn’t be bothered cooking and just really want takeaway, and even some pretty deceptively delicious desserts.

Fabulous Food Minus the Boombah is your new way of cooking – packed full of flavour but minus the boombah!
