This review is from: Good Things To Eat (Kindle Edition)The Concept: This is a collection of recipes which Lucas enjoys to cook - they are long on flavour, and short of effort. The book is divided into the following sections:
Berries and Cherries ~ Birds ~ Cakes ~ Chops ~ Fennel ~ Figs ~ Fish ~ Gratins ~ Ice cream and sorbet ~ Mussels, squid and other creatures ~ Peaches and plums ~ Pies and tarts ~ Pudding ~ Risotto ~ Roasts ~ Spaghetti ~ Stew ~ Summer salads ~ Summer Soup ~ Things on toast ~ Winter salads ~ Winter soup ~ A word about booze ~ Bits and pieces.
There are between five and nine recipes in each section, and they include Strawberries in red wine with cream cheese and basil; Cherrymisu (!!); Raspberry and basil sorbet; Kale and pancetta risotto; Spaghetti with crab and mint; ruby chard with lemon and feta; and Peas, broad beans and ricotta on toast.
Who's going to buy it? All of the recipes are very straight forward - I would expect almost anyone be able to cook these The food combinations are familiar, and yet often include a variation that you know will eat well - an example of that is the cherrymisu - you know it's going to be delicious! There's a strong emphasis on fresh ingredients, eaten simply. Lovely book. Will definitely use this one..
