Susan Jane’s first book, The Extra Virgin Kitchen, first published by Gill in 2014, debuted at number one, while her second book, The Virtuous Tart, won an Irish Book Award in 2016.

Now, Susan Jane is back with Clever Batch: Brilliant batch cooking recipes to save you time, money and patience, her genius blueprint to batch cooking which will hit shelves on 27 September.


In Clever Batch, Susan Jane shares her kitchen-ninja secrets to create nourishing dishes that will sit in your fridge all week, hang out on your kitchen shelves, or wait patiently in your freezer to service another night, saving on shopping, cooking and washing up.


On writing Clever Batch, Susan Jane says: As an under-caffeinated, financially cramped, time-pinched mum, my kitchen management needed re-evaluation. Being short on time, money and patience, I had a problem. I wanted to cook badass nourishing meals, but I didn’t want to cook every single night. I can’t wait to share with my readers all I’ve learned along the way.
