Excellent book for the busy cook who wants something different, even after a busy day at work. It is divided into sections for different things eg meat, poultry, fish, desserts etc. It gives tips on how to get the best from different cuts of meat or fish and what to serve with it - not simply giving you a recipie to follow but ideas on what can go with what. Each of the recipies I have tried have been simple to follow with basic store cupboard items which have turned out just like the pictures. There are recipies to follow but also tips on how to change the recipie to suit you. I was very surprised as Gary Rhodes is known for his complex methods for recipies but not in this case. I would recommend this book to anyone.
When I saw Gary Rhodes bring out a book called `Keeping it Simple'....well it just looked made for those of us who like tasty recipes but who are challenged in the kitchen arena. Keeping it Simple didn't disappoint. The dishes are arranged by section with all the fish recipes together, poultry together and so on. At the beginning of every section Gary details how you identify a good piece of chicken/fish/beef and lists some simple methods of cooking them and some easy complimentary sauces. And all that is before you even see the recipes! The recipes are easy, no-fuss recipes with few ingredients but which are big on taste. The accompanying pictures make your mouth water and although my finished results don't look quite as impressive as Gary's pictures each recipe has been a great success. A definite book for those who want to be able to cook nice food without pulling their hair out!
'Halloumi with Cucumber Pappardelle and Avocado' and 'Leek, Ham and Brie Slice'!
'This is the book I've wanted to write for so many years, one that isn't dictated or overly influenced by my 30 years in professional kitchens.
Yes, there are bits and pieces of that here, but generally, I'm just sharing with you the foods and dishes I like to cook at home....
Good cooking doesn't have to consist of lots of expensive ingredients, 'the simpler the better' couldn't be more accurate.
It's important to remember, however, that `quality' ingredients are the essence of good food. These hold so much flavour which means they don't have to rely on overcomplicated cooking.
Quite a variety of ingredients feature in these pages; most are cheap and easy to find, but none of the recipes are set in stone. Follow your own instincts and use this book as a guide from which to discover and create your own favourites, treating the recipes as a sort of 'pick 'n' mix', swapping and changing ingredients where it suits....
I want you to enjoy cooking and eating from this collection as much as I do...'
