Start Time

So long, slow cooker! Adios, air-fryer! The microwave has been around for over 50 years and will likely outlast any new-fangled kitchen gadget as the hero of convenience cooking - and not just for reheating left-overs.

Our favourite culinary Japanophile, Tim Anderson (JapanEasy, Ramen Forever, My Home Izakaya) is publishing his newest book Microwave Meals. Tim will be joining us to demo and chat about how the microwave can improve and expedite our cooking processes.

Many of us are short on time, energy and funds and he uses the microwave to help mitigate these issues. Tim not only sees the microwave as a tool for cooking, but also a tool for alleviating stress and anxiety, as he explains so well in the book…

You can make a risotto the old-fashioned way, ladling stock, stirring, ladling stock, stirring, ladling stock, stirring, ladling stock, stirring, ladling stock, stirring, until it’s finally done, and by that time your kids are all grown up and have left the house and your dog is dead and you realise you missed out on so much because you were too busy ladling stock and stirring forever. 

Microwave Meals teaches you how to raise your microwave game, with recipes that can all be easily whipped up in the microwave, with no extra cooking equipment required!

You can try your hand at Pork with Miso and Stem Ginger Syrup, Spaghetti Carbonara, Jackfruit and Mushroom Enchiladas, Crab and Artichoke Gratin, and even Overnight Cinnamon Rolls and Emergency Mixing Bowl Cookie Cake. Plus, it also covers basic skills, including cooking rice, steaming vegetables and creating stocks, all with the help of the microwave. Full of tips and tricks, you will learn how to make the microwave your own little sous chef!

Expect a fun multi-microwave cookery demo this evening with Tim at the helm showing us how to let the microwave take care of dinner and much, much more.
