Rediscover the pleasures of traditional home cooking and the true taste of country fare with this superb collection of recipes. Fresh seasonal produce, rather than imported and pre-packed ingredients, is the keynote.
In this volume you will find recipes for every season and every occasion--soups, vegetable accompaniments and vegetarian dishes, pies, casseroles, stews and roasts, as well as fruity desserts and cakes, bread, chutneys and jams. Whether in the city or the country, special occasions should be celebrated with a special meal - Grilled Sea Bass with Fennel or Sunday Best Beef Wellington might feature on the menu, followed by a light dessert, such as Borage, Mint and Lemon Balm Sorbet. For a hearty family supper, Cod, Basil and Tomato with a Potato Thatch or Pork Sausage and Puff Pastry Plait might fit the bill, followed by a homely French Apple Tart. Fresh harvest loaf, spread with butter and Rosehip and Crab Apple Jelly, will keep the children going, at least until supper time.
This book brings the flavors, aromas and ease of preparation found in healthy, traditional country dishes to even the city kitchen.
