How to make the most of the freezer, to save time and money.
By cooking in bulk and freezing in quantity, cooks can cut down on the cost of ingredients and the time spent in the kitchen, and this book explains how. It is packed with 100 delicious recipes, including Lentil and Venison Sausage Stew; Thai Coconut Fish Curry; Garlicky Stilton and Dauphinoise; Pear, Saffron and Ginger Tarte Tatin; Easy Spiced Banana and Apricot Bread; and Peach and Mascarpone Crumble Cake. All the basic recipes a busy cook needs can be found right here; for example a ragÃ¹ sauce that can be frozen and then turned into numerous dishes. There are also recipes perfectly suited to cooking in bulk-for instance, why cook one lasagna when you can fit three in your oven and freeze two of them? Every recipe features health and safety advice on freezing, defrosting, and reheating, and there are at-a-glance charts of ingredients to show which ones can be frozen and for how long. Includes dual measures.
