Every one of Tamasin Day-Lewis' books is worth buying, reading and cooking from, and this collection is a classic example of what makes her such an addictive writer. With the emphasis on seasonal produce, this is a collection of food that shows you how to get the most out of your budget and the most taste out of the food that is at its best in each of the four seasons. Modern, unpretentious and compulsive, it's one of those cookery books that you return to time and again.

Tamasin writes with great knowledge of, and respect for, her ingredients. The book is beautifully photographed and presented. Recipes are grouped according to season and effortlessly linked to stories of small food producers. Her writing makes you want to seek out the best quality ingredients you can afford, then return to your kitchen and start cooking your way through her book

This book is about the art of seasonal cooking. But, I am not one for seasonal cooking, so for me this book is all about good food, of which there are plenty! Along with recipes, this book also has some interesting stories (some from Tamsin's own experiences), eg Phil the Fish, Peter Whiteman's potatoes, the Sheridan Brothers, etc. which make it more than just a cook book: it is a book you can read, appreciate and take to the kitchen.
There are lots of recipes here to try - soups, pies, tarts, savouries, sweets, main courses, light meals, starters etc. It should keep you more than busy for the whole year.
The desserts and other sweet delights in this book are spectacular and I cannot wait to try the other suggestions for the year. This is one section where we are (albeit reluctantly) subject to seasonal limitations. Still, it gives us something to look forward to making in the winters months.
Personally, I love this book - the recipes are uncomplicated, the pictures are truly inspiring and the results are noteworthy.

Great to have it in my significant collection of Ms Day-Lewis' books which I always enjoy, but I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but many look very tempting.
