Rose explores affordable and easy good food with the 200 completely delectable and original recipes in this inspiring new book. She unlocks a larder of new and unfamiliar English ingredients from cobnuts to red Duke of York potatoes to watercress, and also shows how eating local can mean good eating at the same time as being good for the environment. She explains how and where to shop and introduces a rhythm of cooking, identifying which foods are right for everyday meals, and which for the occasional feast. She shows how to make the most of costly ingredients--traditional breeds, organic produce, and handmade foods--recycling leftovers for yet more delicious meals. Leftovers from a roast beef joint, for instance, become an aromatic salad with toasted green pumpkin seeds and herbs, or, simmered with fungi and red wine, a rich braise to eat with mash or buttered ribbons of pasta. The New English Table is proof that good eating does not have to cost the earth.
