Readers should be able to pick up the guide, wherever they are in the UK, and find a good butcher selling naturally reared, native bred beef, or sustainably caught fish - a pick-your-own or a great farm shop. We are discovering real shopping again at last - this is the guide to make that happen. I want you to love reading it as much as I have enjoyed finding the entries.’
December 2010 Book of the Month. Shortlisted for the Galaxy Food & Drink Book of the Year 2010. As a nation we have been hooked on the cooking bug in recent years, with the rise and rise of the celebrity chef, but sometimes all these glamorous books and shows don’t necessarily give us just the basic, rudimentary steps we want to feeding a family on a budget. Here Rose Prince brings all her years of experience together to give over 200 recipes. Some are passed down through the years, from mother to daughter, tried and tested and thoroughly delicious, without breaking the bank or requiring the skills of a Michelin starred chef. Yum!
Come Over... Whether you're a beginner looking for simple, impressive recipes to feed friends and family, or a seasoned host hoping to inject your repertoire with stylish, interesting ideas, you'll find all you need in Dinner & Party. Rose's stance on entertaining is that the cook shouldn't be banished to the kitchen; cooking for guests needn't be fussy or hard to juggle, but instead made up of dishes - some classics, some novel - that can be prepared in advance, dressed up to impress last minute and enjoyed by everyone. Practicality is central to a book updating the etiquette for entertaining in our times. With this in mind, Part 1: Dinner showcases easy options for every course, all alongside thoughtful advice about how to source ingredients, when to begin preparation and how to serve. Meanwhile, Part 2: Party provides tried and tested catering ideas for larger groups, from indoor picnics, to standing parties and Christmas dinners. With sample menus, including an innovative guide to putting the right dishes together through the seasons, this is the friendly, practical guide to making entertaining easy in the 21st century, bringing everyone together.
