Settling down with your favorite takeaway might be easier than ever, with online ordering and delivery to your door, but this is an expensive way to eat and it’s impossible to ensure top quality ingredients, or food at its crispy, piping-hot best.
The Fakeaway Manual contains the global scope of our most popular take outs and street food, crossing the contemporary and the traditional with a collection of outstanding recipes that will withstand the fashions of food and time.  The book includes classic, familiar dishes as well as emerging contemporary street and festival dishes, and covers Indian, Asian, American, British and South American cuisines with fresh and authentic recipes. Author Fergal Connolly deconstructs intimidating methods and techniques to make everything entirely accessible, from deep frying chicken katsu to flaming marinated lamb for a spicy schwarma.
