LoveReading View on The Modern Cook's Year

Anna Jones marks the year in six seasons adding to our usual 4 to take account of the vast differences in temperature we experience through just one season. A cold start to Spring will keep us wanting warming stews and puds but when it warms up then we need to sharpen up our salad repertoires. Anna Jones has provided over 250 Vegetarian recipes, bang up to date and endlessly inventive, alongside the recipes there are guides to flowers and the right music for the right ambience.  Sue Baker
