Sip your steaming French press as you sit cozily at your breakfast table staring at your soon to be tasted feast. You'll sample cream biscuits with jam butter, perfectly scrambled eggs, greens, and blood oranges halved. When lunch time rolls around, your appetite will be satiated by avocado sandwiches with greens and parsley pesto, macerated blackberries with brown sugar and mint, and donuts from your local shop. Snack before dinner on lemon hummus and naan with rosemary and thyme. For dinner have corned beef with root vegetables, braised pure cabbage, and seasame and salt pretzels. Make sure you indulge your sweet tooth with some mulled wine, and ice cream sampler or some date cake with toffee sauce!
And that's not all you'll find on these wonderfully rustic and artful pages. Plan a picnic in the city, a party for your little one, holiday fare and even the perfect campsite spread. This will assuage not only your elegant appetite, but will be a visual feast for all!
This is a great book. I am really enjoying the cookbook evolution. Instead of page upon high gloss page of every recipe under the sun, here you will find recipes that follow a very thought out menu. Perfectly rustic and down to earth, they are great for those who enjoy a simple, but great tasting meal. The photography is really tasteful and well appointed. The commentary is enjoyable to read and a nice added touch. This would be a great gift for any chef on your list.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
