This wonderful little book contains a treasury of ideas for experienced cooks and for beginners. The late, great Jane Grigson's enthusiasm for food shows on every page as she explores a selected range of her favourite foods. Each section begins with a short essay, which sets the scene. The range within a relatively short book is enormous; from asparagus to venison and mussels and scallops to walnuts. This is a book I go back to time after time, for inspiration and ideas as well as for the recipes themselves.
