This is a fantastic book. It's written by a chef with the aim of making cooking with leftovers inspirational and creative. From fried sushi to BBQ sauce made right in the bottle, this book has a wealth of appetising ideas. There is even a section on preserving, including a recipe for Dulce de Leche (on my hob as we speak) and a simple chicken pate in a jar (similar to pork rillettes) to use up that single cooked chicken breast and give it a new lease of life.
Some of the ideas are bizarre - chocolate coated pasta anyone? Or perhaps gnocchi with strawberries? But the author's main aim is to get us looking at leftovers in a new and creative light.
For those of us who equate leftovers cooking with endless pasta bakes and boring bubble & squeak, this is a breath of fresh air. A must for anyone with a love of cooking who wants to be more frugal whilst still living and eating well.
