This week on the CoffeeBar Kid, my guest is Brett McGregor, whose new book "A Taste of Home" (Random House) is a winner.
It covers good wholesome, easy to make food that all the family can make, and more importantly - afford. There's not a lot of big, overpriced imgrediant on the menu here, so you can be confident good ideas for cheap satisfying meals.
I have a chat at the Southern Cross over breakfast and even reveal a few culinary secrets of my own. Join me from 7.30 this Thursday.
Below are a few photos of my attempts at a chorizo risotto. I substitute pearl barley for rice, due to a shopping oversight. The dish still works pretty well though.
I think Brett was impressed!

Also, tonight we review two new books - the latest Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding (Yes she's back and more paranoid than ever!) And, speaking of back, so is Bond. Yes a new novel, written in the style of the other great Fleming of the literary world. Check my reviews/transcripts for these books here: www.adventuresofthecoffeebarkid.blogspot.co.nz
