I collect cookery books and cook regularly for self, friends and for groups, through work. I hate serving up the same dishes, time after time. Alastair Little's book as well as making great reading, introduces new recipes, easy to follow with great photographs. Everything from soups, pasta, meat and vegetables.
I was lucky my mum worked for Italians when I was born, as my taste buds developed to like simple, good tasting food, I remember seeing Alastair on TV a few years ago and I admired his not over the top attitude to creating wonderful things.
Reading and making notes at the moment, so looking forward to trying his recipes.
