Book Description

29 July 1999
The majority of people categorize their national food in a very simple way, not by dishes or techniques, but by ingredients - bacon, oats, raspberries and honey for example, immediately suggest British food. So important are many of these ingredients that they have become an integral part of Britain's national identity. This book presents British cooking by listing typically British ingredients and giving modern recipes for them. The book is divided into 32 alphabetically ordered sections, beginning with apples and ending with walnuts. Each section begins with an introduction and concludes with a number of recipes, all with British flavours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply British. Simply the best. 7 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Sybil Kapoor's Simply British is clear, consise, useful in a "what can I do with all this beetroot?" way and provides consise recipes which work every time. For the cook and non-cook alike the introductions to each food provide mouthwatering stimulation to enjoying the best of our native produce. I reach to it time and again for modern, tasty, reliable food and inspiration on what to cook.
