Who is Sue Baker

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Coming from James Martin’s popular TV show in which he cooks favourite recipes at home, this book is filled with simple, tasty dishes using fresh, often locally sourced ingredients, or store cupboard staples to whip up something like his superbly rich tomato and basil soup in double-quick time. Try whole roast trout with salsa verde and roasted lemons, enjoy favourites chicken fricassee or chicken chasseur, impress with tarragon-stuffed crown of lamb with duchess potatoes, or spice it up with Indian-spiced lamb shoulder or Malaysian chilli beef rendang. A thoroughly tempting selection.

Synopsis

Home Comforts by Martin James

He champions local produce and loves growing his own, and this irresistible collection of recipes ranges from fancy dinners to impress friends, to those times when you just need to grab lunch for one in a hurry. Much-loved for his trademark wholesome, hearty British food, in this book James shows off a fresh, light and ultra-modern side, too, in dishes like Shaved cauliflower salad with barbecued honey tomatoes. The very British love of spicy foods is properly indulged with recipes from all over the world, including Indian deep-fried soft-shell crab with a delicious home-made lime pickle. There is also the true comfort food - such as Chicken and wild mushroom frying pan pie - and old favourites such as chicken Kiev.
