From the Inside Flap
Hot chestnut and honey soup, whipped potatoes with Lancashire cheese, melted ale and Cheddar to eat with bread, baked haddock soup, saffron buns and watercress and radish sauce for pasta: just a few of the 200 completely delectable and original recipes in Rose Prince's inspiring new book, The New English Table.
In it Rose explores affordable and easy good food. She unlocks a larder of new and unfamiliar English ingredients from cobnuts to red Duke of York potatoes to watercress and also shows how eating local can mean good eating at the same time as being good for the environment. She explains how and where to shop and introduces a rhythm of cooking, identifying which foods are right for everyday meals, and which for the occasional feast. Rose shows how to make the most of costly ingredients - traditional breeds, organic produce and handmade foods - recycling leftovers for yet more delicious meals. Leftovers from a roast beef joint, for instance, become an aromatic salad with toasted green pumpkin seeds and herbs or, simmered with fungi and red wine, and rich braise to eat with mash or buttered ribbons of pasta.
The New English Table is proof that good eating does not need to cost the earth. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
