The Cycling Chef On the Go

by Alan Murchison

ISBN: 9781399411066

'Top meals from the Michelin-starred chef who is also a champion athlete.' - The Times

'Alan's culinary precision is matched only by his passion and ability as a sport professional.' - Tom Kerridge



'If you're hungry, it's too late' is the cyclists' mantra to avoid hitting the wall with an all-consuming loss of energy. To professional peloton, club riders and weekend peddlers alike, portable foods are as essential as a pump and a spare tube.

Armed with a host of simple-to-prepare, savoury and sweet recipes, Alan Murchison creates a range of on-the-go snacks, unique dishes and smoothies to enable riders to ditch the processed energy bars, sugary drinks and takeaways, and enjoy real food full of flavour.

On-the-go food must be appealing enough to encourage snacking when appetites are blunted and robust enough to withstand being grabbed from a musette. These energy-boosting recipes - including mouth-watering snacks such as Pressed Parmesan and Rosemary Polenta and Bakewell Balls - restore strength and are downright delicious. And instead of impatiently raiding the fridge after a hard day on the saddle, his post-ride refuelling suggestions offer irresistible protein-rich recovery alternatives.

As a respected cyclist and pro-cycling team nutritionist, Alan has road-tested his own recipes and cooked them for elite cyclists. This book of portable, practical, performance food means that whatever your level you will always have energy to the end.

Recipes include:

- 'Full English' frittatas
- Chocolatey cardamom protein muffins
- White chocolate miso blondies
- Frozen yoghurt protein berries bites
- Banana peanut popsicles
- 'Full gas' lassi
- Last legs espresso brownie
- Sweet potato 'tattie scones'
