Jamie pulls together a selection of recipes to liven up Sunday dinner for the traditional cook, or someone a little more ambitious!
'The book is called this because the weekend is when I get an opportunity to cook at home and have a wicked time with my family and friends. And now I've got kids, the weekends are so important for cooking with them - I find it really grounding and always have such a laugh with them. Remember - cooking is supposed to be fun and not a chore. So here is a collection of some of my favourite recipes from the books I've written over the past few years. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun with them, so roll your sleeves up and get stuck in. This collection of recipes couldn't be more apt - it really is 'something for the weekend', whether you're looking for breakfast ideas, snacks, lazy lunches, proper dinner parties or whether you're after a really good party cake recipe. Have a great weekend cooking. And, Happy Birthday Penguin.'
The little paperback measures around 11 cm x 17.75 cm and opens to 64 pages, split into chapters:
1. Introduction 2. Brekkie 3. Long Lunches 4. Fish Suppers 5. Drinks 6. On the Sidelines 7. Alfresco Food 8. Puds
* Bacon sarnie my stylie * Braised five-hour lamb with wine, veg and all that * Fantastic fish pie * Scrummy warm rocket salad * Lovely lemon curdy pud
It should be noted that these little books are just 'tastes' of the authors, from Pocket Penguin - hence the price! They are written on matt paper, in a fairly small print and have no illustrations.
