Join Clare English this Wednesday lunchtime when she finds out that eating in is the new eating out. We're all cooking more and in the current climate, many of us prefer to have friends round for dinner rather than eating out. Cook and food writer Sue Lawrence tells us how we make restaurant-quality food at home. What are the fail-safe recipes that will impress your friends but won't require endless hours of preparation or last-minute work in the kitchen.

Chef and Saturday Kitchen presenter James Martin talks about his involvement in 5by25, a new campaign which is trying to get youngsters interested in cooking, the main aim of which is to get them familiar with 5 simple recipes by the age of 25.

How do we get that age group excited by cooking?
