Everyday Exotic

The Cookbook
and Allan Magee

Following the success of the hit television series Everyday Exotic, Chef Roger Mooking and his producer Allan Magee bring together the most delicious of his 52 inspiring episodes. Using the concept of one main exotic ingredient, Roger demystifies the ingredient through its flavour and aroma, empowering the reader to embrace them in their cooking. Mix in your standard midweek recipes and you have new classics that your entire family will love.

From Monday’s standard meatloaf, to Sunday’s traditional roast chicken, it’s easy to learn how to embrace new taste sensations that turn those tired midweek recipes into fresh and exciting new meals. With Roger and Everyday Exotic by your side, you have the perfect go-to guide for solving that seemingly impossible question, “What should I make for dinner tonight?”

  • Lime Leaf Chicken with Lime Mayo
  • Coriander Meatloaf with Cilantro Pesto and

  • Saffron Halibut Packets

And as Roger insists, you eat first with your eyes. So discover your own inspiration for plating each recipe in the accompanying beautiful presentations found within each vibrant and colourful photo throughout the book.
