Book Description

Cookery teacher and home cook Rachel Allen returns with clever ideas, simple shortcuts and plenty of practical advice for achieving simple, wholesome and nutritious meals day after day. Rachel’s Kitchen ties in to 13-part primetime television.

This stunning, fully photographed cookbook includes over 100 tried-and-tested new recipes from bestselling cook Rachel Allen.

After years of cooking for her family, teaching at the world-renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School and listening to the questions of home cooks, Rachel has pulled together an ultimate cookery manual for getting great food on the table throughout the week without stress, expensive bills or hours at the stove.

Rachel’s Kitchen is all about everyday clever cooking: simple shortcuts, advice on weekly planning and shopping, wasting less, freezing more, preparing ahead and using leftovers, recipes than can serve more and those that can be adjusted to a tasty meal for one or two. Rachel will show you how to cook once but achieve two or three meals. A side dish of baked broccoli with garlic and pine nuts can be transformed into a spelt salad with feta. Extra mashed potato and smoked fish from a fish pie can become instant, warming Cullen Skink the next day. Her approach saves time and money, but also allows cooking to be satisfying and enjoyable rather than a chore.

Rachel’s thrifty recipes don’t require unusual ingredients that will linger at the back of the cupboard but affordable favourite ingredients that get used multiple times and underused cuts of meat or seasonal vegetables that can be made into a truly delicious dish.

From fast family suppers, packed lunches and prepared-ahead meals to stress-free roasts and biscuit-tin sweet and savoury baking - Rachel’s Kitchen is a must have, practical family cooking bible.

4.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive collection of recipes 17 Sept. 2013
Format:Hardcover
Rachel Allen is a well-known TV chef hailing from Dublin. She has released many recipe books throughout her career, and this most recent one is based around one of her shows, and is described on the cover as a collection of everyday simple meals.

My first impression was of a comprehensive collection of recipes, and unlike some books, there were a large number of them that caught my eye. Being someone who is quite a picky eater, this is a rarity.

Following the obligatory introduction, there is some instruction about preparing ahead, freezing, and making your own stock. Some useful tips in there, so don't skip it. The recipes themselves are broken into useful chapters such pizza, fish, and poultry etc.

The recipes are largely savoury, being only the final chapter that covers sweet things. As I have a sweet tooth, I would have liked to have seen a few more dessert recipes, but Rachel has dedicated whole books to this topic, so I am not too disappointed. My favourite recipes were Easy Arancini, Caramelised Onion and Rosemary Bread, and Slow Roasted Pork Belly.

There are plenty of delightful photos, all of which seem to have a summery tone, saturated with colours and light. There were only a few recipes that didn't appear to have a picture. For me, a recipe book that is light on pictures is a deal breaker.

The cover describes the recipes within as simple. While I wouldn't say this book would suit a complete novice, anyone with some experience will easily follow the straight forward instructions.

Overall, it is a good collection of recipes, but I must be honest and say that some of the ingredients, I have a hard time believing could be considered `everyday'. Some of the ingredients such as saffron or clams, are decidedly not everyday in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good recipes 19 Sept. 2013
By fifa
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I owned every Rachel Allen cookery book and watch her shows regularly.I love her recipes.she includes variety of recipes from all over the world.Everyday kitchen has lots of good recipes I marked at least 30 to try.I cook from Rachel,s other books almost every day.the reason I gave it 4 stars is because I don,t find the ideas and tips for freezing or meal planning new and inspirational .any home cook who is cooking for years uses them unconsciously . I think biggeners will find them informative.Rachel's home cooking has more and better tips than this book.for those people who like pictures of finished food this book has photos of almost every recipe and very few Rachel,s and her family's pictures.there would be hardly 4,5 pictures of her and her family. This book is split into 9 chapters.
1.pizza and bread
2.fish and shellfish
3.poultry
4.eggs and cheese
5.Beef and lamb
6.ham and pork
7.pulses,grains and pasta
8.vegetables
9.sweet things
In introduction she is telling us about1. meal planning2.,cooking ahead and in batches,3.storing and freezing,4.one meal turned into many for example Sunday chicken roast left over can be turned into a casserole .or the carcass can be turned into a stock.there are very few lunch box ideas as well.there are some home made stock receipts as well .each recipe has symbols for variation,prep ahead and storage,serves more less and left overs.
Some of the recipes are following.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some lovely recipes 14 Nov. 2013
By Angie T.D. TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Rachels having enjoyed watching a few of her cookery shows, and I was delighted to see this book on offer at only 49p,I see its already gone back up in price so I definately had a result.I've read the book, and I'm now at the stage where I'm writing out the recipes that I want to try, I'm going to start with the recipe for enchiladas with lime chive cream, I'm a vegetarian but will simply use quorn instead of meat.I can adapt quite a few of these recipes and there are some vegetarian ones as well, I'm also going to adapt a pasta recipe and I think I'm going to have some fun and have a few more dishes to add to my collection,I think there are about 6 recipes that I will try, and for me thats very good, often out of a whole cookbook I might only end up with 2 or 3 recipes that I like the look of,better get in the kitchen I think!
