Book Description

10 Oct 2013

Fruit is pretty much the perfect food: bountiful, delicious and colourful, it also helps us to fight infection, stresses and strains. But why are we still a nation that thinks it's a bit racy to slice a banana onto our cornflakes in the morning? A 'piece of fruit' in a lunch box, on the breakfast table or at the end of a meal is all very well, but fruit is so much more exciting than this, and we don't eat nearly enough of the stuff. Perhaps this is because we don't always understand how to use it in our cooking, or how to choose the best fruit for the season.

Hugh sets out to address this head on. With 180 delicious recipes, River Cottage Fruit Every Day! will show you how to enjoy a broader eating experience and make fruit easy, fun and irresistible. You'll find recipes for all the wonderful seasonal fruit that grows in this country, and learn how to make the most of fruit from other parts of the world. Recipes include marinated lamb and fig kebabs; barbecued pork chops with peaches and sage; venison stew with damsons; and parsnip and apple cakes. There are also fresh and zingy salads as well as gorgeous cakes, tarts, pies, crumbles and puddings.

With glorious photography from Simon Wheeler, this book will bring amazing new fruity vitality and flavour to your food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 15 Oct 2013
By Self-help junkie TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Really enticing and inspiring book - just what I've come to expect from HFW. I find his books are generous in that each recipe has variations so that you are encouraged to experiment with slight variations to the main recipe - by the time you add all the variations up, you're probably looking at over 200 recipes! Wow. Made the Apple Snow at the weekend: mmm - yummy way to use up some of this year's bumper apple crop! But I defy anyone to open this book at random and not feel like immediately heading for the kitchen and starting to cook! The cake recipes look wonderful - plan to try one of those this weekend!

4.0 out of 5 stars Handsome and inspiring 15 Oct 2013
By Helen
Another handsome book from HFW containing an inspirational mixture of intriguing foreign influences and quirky modern ideas as well as a few British classic recipes. This will definitely help me get more varied use out of fruits in future and I shall especially enjoy trying out the salad and meat combinations.

Compliments to Bloomsbury on the design except for one complaint that the introduction is almost unreadable because of the very poor contrast between black print and shiny fuschia pink paper.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fruity wonder! 20 Oct 2013
Excellent book, full of unusual, tasty recipes with complex, beautiful flavours - straight forward to make, which I particularly like. The book itself is bright and colourful, with great photos and good general information about fruit.

I'm a big fan of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and River Cottage and have purchased most of the books and DVD's to date; the books in particular are consistently good, and for me what sets them apart from many on the market is the amount of unique (and sometimes unusual) flavour combinations.

This new book, 'River Cottage Fruit everyday' is no different.

I purchased the accompanying volume River Cottage Veg Every Day! (River Cottage Every Day) on its release hoping that it would inspire me to have more of an open mind towards vegetables and encourage me to experiment, this it most definitely did.

I have purchased this new volume with the same intention; I love the taste of fruit and want to eat more, but have always struggled with eating it, often the texture itself putting me off (I know, I'm weird).

This book has a huge amount of recipes, both sweet and savoury, that combine all manner of fruits and some of the combinations are inspired.

As with all the River Cottage books it is beautifully presented; 416 pages, filled with very attractive photography and also bright and colourful graphics.

There are a number of main sections:

1. Summer berries & currants
2. Rhubarb
3. Stone Fruit
4. Apples
5. Pears & quinces
6. Hedgerow fruit
7. Figs, melons, grapes & more
8. Tropical favourites
9. Citrus fruit
10. Dried fruit
11. Uncommon fruit

Each of these sections has an introduction concerning the fruit; there is also a directory included that lists related websites and businesses.

Each recipe is very easy to follow; clear instructions and a photograph accompanying every one.

Interesting recipes which are easy to prepare. Have tried some already & they taste very good
Pity the book was not out earlier in the season when the fruit was available. Will have to put it away until next year before I can really use it
