Nearly 300 simple, classic Mediterranean dishes are collected together in this cookbook. It includes easy to follow recipes, grouped together according to the principal ingredient, and in every case, complementary dishes are recommended.
The dishes that comprise these sociable little feasts from the countries along the shores of the Mediterranean have slight variations from place to place and appear under many different names, but they are linked by common traditions and techniques - not least the use of saffron, the edible sunshine that gives many of them their flavour and colour. With the combination of richly evocative description and practical guidance that has made her earlier books modern cookery classics, Elisabeth Luard presents mouthwatering recipes for over 300 of them. They are grouped in chapters according to the principal ingredient, but in every case she recommends complementary dishes for balance and variety.
Saffron & Sunshine contains all the hallmarks of Elisabeth Luard's cookery writing, with delicious, authentic recipes based on the very best simple ingredients. It also offers great flexibility for cooks to serve up excellent food in today's more relaxed, informal style of entertaining at home. Food for vegetarians, slimmers, supper dishes or multiple feasts - all is here in a magnificent collection of recipes to be savoured by both armchair cooks and real cooks.
