A revolutionary cookbook that moves the humble side dish to centre stage. Whilst writing his food blog, Rocket & Squash, Ed Smith noticed that a key part of our meals was being ignored. On too many occasions, side dishes were being relegated to an overboiled afterthought, or dismissed with a throwaway 'eat with potatoes' or 'serve with seasonal greens' line. But our side dishes have the potential to be as inspirational as the main event itself. In fact, they're often the best bit!

Synopsis

On the Side A Sourcebook of Inspiring Side Dishes by

Here it's the 'two veg' rather than the meat which are given the spotlight: you'll find 140 inspiring recipes and insightful tips to make your pulses, roots, vegetables and greens dazzle in their own right. Think of garlic oil pea shoots, smoky ratatouille, celeriac baked in a salt and thyme crust, carrots with brown butter and hazelnuts, spelt grains with wild mushrooms, and chorizo roast potatoes. Complete with a recipe directory that will help you find the perfect accompaniment, whatever your cooking, On the Side will brighten and invigorate every meal.

Reviews

'Full of recipes I want to cook and eat' Yotam Ottolenghi

'A lifelong fan of 'bits on the side', the joyous accompaniments to the main course, I am thrilled to see them taking centre stage. I want to eat every recipe in this book.' Nigel Slater

'This is both a beautiful and eminently useful cookbook. I know it will often be pulled out from my kitchen shelves.' Anna Jones
