The first cookbook from English foodie and author of The Year of Eating Dangerously, comfort food from the country that invented it.
Award-winning food writer Tom Parker Bowles is one of the world's most enthusiastic eaters. He's as over the moon for simple food--a perfectly melted bacon, egg and cheese sandwich, or a rich tomato soup--as he is for the exotic, the fiery hot, and the elegant. Like many everyday gourmands, he never wastes a meal. The dinners he puts together for his young family at home are as carefully thought-out and executed as anything he makes for company. His easy culinary style and winning writing will delight fans of his fellow Englishman Simon Hopkinson's Roast Chicen and Other Stories. The 140 recipes in Let's Eat are divided into extremely useful chapters, such as Comfort Food, Quick Fixes, and Slow and Low.
Rounded out with a weekday cook's shortcuts and basics, such as how to make stock and how to transform leftovers into entirely new meals, Let's Eat is one of the best curl-up-and-read-it-tonight cookbooks of the season.
