A new-look, clean-shaven, short-haired, glowingly healthy Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall presents a new volume for all those who have over-indulged. It turns out that it is possible to eat healthily without the misery of self-denial! Start the day with polenta porridge with honey, or pumpkin seed drop scones, followed by a Masala omelette; for lunch enjoy Nordic slaw with rye crumbs and mackerel and fennel escabeche; at suppertime go for spiced beef with bashed beans, or beetroot burgers followed by pear and chocolate cobbler, or almond rice pudding with lemon and bay. The soup section is particularly strong, with all kinds of unusual creations, from chickpea soup to nectarine and raspberry soup by way of gooseberry gazpacho. This being a health-conscious kind of book, there are also plenty of scrumptious salads, such as the vocabulary-extending cucurbit salad and quinoa and gooseberry tabbouleh.
