About the Author
Genevieve Taylor is a writer and food stylist with her own catering company. Her early career was working as a researcher at the BBC, going on to produce their long-running TV series, "Animal Park." She now splits her time between food writing and creating beautiful food for photography (including all of the images within "Stew!"). She lives in Bristol with her husband and two children and a recently acquired family of chickens - the subject of her 'An Egg A Day' food blog." Stew!" is her first cookery book.

The recipes -all savoury- are classified into chapters called: Traditional and hearty, Meals in a bowl, Stews to impress, Fragrant and Aromatic and finally Fresh and Vibrant, the index at the end lists them from key ingredients, which makes it fairly easy to navigate through although an additional listing of the recipes to be found in each chapter would have been a welcome addition.
The photos are very appetising, the recipes are clearly explained, easy to follow and produce great results (even though the Beef Carbonnade lacks the "secret" ingredient which makes all the difference ;-).
I have been really impressed by Genevieve Taylor's take on both British and international dishes and the sheer variety she offers in this book, here is a taster of recipes we have tried and enjoyed: Sri Lankan fish curry with coconut sambal, Prawns and red peppers with almond and garlic sauce, Lamb with white beans and coriander, Persian chicken with walnuts and pomegranates, Pork belly braised with satsumas and medieval spices, Greek chicken and pasta stew to name but a few...
If you love stews this will be a great addition to your cookbook collection. Anthony Worrall Thompson's Slow Cooking is another one worth checking out, I bought both within a few days (^^) and I am glad to say they complement each other very nicely.
There are family friendly recipes along with recipes for more special occasions. So far the kids and adults have loved Highland Lamb Stew and Autumn Pork. My friends and husband have loved; Cavoli Nero and Cannellini Beans, Greek chicken and pasta stew, Butternut squash and lentils with raita, Smoke fish chowder and Pork with caramelised apples. Two friends have already bought this book since tasting some of these recipes!
I'm buying Soup! next.
Pragmatic approach to cooking comes through in delicious ideas and (for me anyway) results - with ideas for combinations of flavours that are genius - who said stews had seasonal limitation!
Buy it and enjoy it for happy eating.
The book itself is very nice, most recipes are accompanied by lovely detailed photographs, so you roughly know what the meal should look like
great book! i now want to buy the Mince! cookbook by the same publisher
